No.1 Hand Fans from Sand.

The Fine Art of keeping cool.

A warm welcome from me, a London born artist, designer, sole maker of No 1 Hand Fans and Master of Fine Art from the Royal Academy London.

Let me introduce you to my utterly unique and useful custom painted contemporary Art fans, Designed by me for you or that other special someone :)

Please bear these times in mind when ordering and get in touch in plenty of time if your fan is for a special day etc and if you are outside the UK, especially at busy times.

A bit about my fans:

So why buy a No.1 Hand Fan?

Perhaps you are tired of the same old generic designs on basic fans meant to last a day or two or printed with mundane designs with no creativity involved?

Maybe, like me, you've been looking for ages for that special hand held Fan with a creative and contemporary take on the traditional ?

A Fan that expresses you're individuality, creativity and style?

A Fan that compliments and adds to your statement of what you wear and how you wear it?

A Fan that gets you through and cools you down all those unwanted waves of heat that so any of us know to well?

A fan that could be a lasting keepsake for a gift, a bride, a wedding anniversary perhaps?

And finally, a fan that is hard to follow and hard to find anywhere else....even if I do say so myself :)


Every No 1 Hand Fan I make also includes:


Elegant Silk pouch with customised tassel and charm.

Charm and Tassels bespoke for your particular Fan.

Free Gift Wrapping service upon request.

Free Gift card and hand written message upon request.

Be assured, you're No.1 Hand Fan is always utterly unique even though made to order from a previous design, it will always be similar but different? You can ask for small changes to your design at time of order.

Your fan is also also a collectible art object from an established London artist with provenance. You can find out about my work at www.sandlaurenson.com

Just ask if you are unsure about anything at all.

Thanks for looking.

Very best,

Sand :)

Utterly Unique and Useful Contemporary No.1 Hand Fans

...... lets get the Me Me Me outa the way!

Here are some words about me, my work, my fans and why........

I was unfashionably late to the art world party having had a number of lives before finally completing a BA(hons) in Fine Art and then being selected for a 3 year post graduate Masters at the Royal Academy schools in London. I am pretty proud of this achievement, not only as it was achieved whilst bringing up two children and working part time but also because only 18 scholarship students are accepted worldwide every year.

I make my art work in all kinds of ways, any method that seems most appropriate to the tale involved; sculpture, paintings, drawing and digital.... you are welcome to take a look at it here www.sandlaurenson.com as it often inspires the designs that show on my fans.

As I am always looking for ways to make my work as an artist more available and approachable to people outside of the art world I try to price my fans to fit most pockets. I think, and hope you do too, that if you consider what a similar size original painting would cost, my fans are fair price for a usable art object and perhaps also a great stepping stone to a collection of art?

My work has been seen and collected in many places; Europe, Asia, The Americas and Oceania. I hope that any one with a discerning eye for the unique, collectible and contemporary will continue to appreciate and invest in my work and my Art Fans!

Now .....more ABOUT my FANS :)

In 2015, after being selected for a 2 month show in one of the huge 3.5 metre widows at SELFRIDGES on Oxford Street, London, I developed a growing interest in the fusion of art and fashion. This work comprised of hundreds of drilled goose eggshells decorated and painted with nails, screws etc and then set against a huge oval mirror. See it here www.sandlaurenson.com.

Seed planted.

Then, as it happens, I was finally forced to take a year out of work (in the physical sense) due to an injury....after too many months of low income and low mood and to stop myself going stir crazy I started making my fan ideas into what they have become today. My fans became a silver lining to some very dark clouds.

So why buy a No.1 Hand Fan?

One of my main reasons for making my fans was to relieve menopause symptoms in the coolest way possible! And I tell you, it really worked so I knew there were other woman out there who needed the same!

And......Perhaps you are tired of the same old generic designs on cheap fans meant to last a day or two or printed with mundane designs with no creativity involved?

Maybe, like me, you've been looking for ages for that special hand held Fan with a creative and contemporary take on the traditional ?

A Fan that expresses you're individuality, creativity and style?

A Fan that compliments and adds to your statement of what you wear and how you wear it?

A fan that could be a lasting keepsake for a gift, a bride, a wedding anniversary perhaps?

And finally, a fan that is hard to follow and hard to find anywhere else....even if I do say so myself 🙄.

Because....

You're No.1 Hand Fan is always utterly unique even when made to order from a previous design, it will always be similar but different? See my full collection at www.No1Handfans.com

Your fan is also also a collectible art object from an established London artist with provenance. You can find out about my shows, awards and herstory at www.sandlaurenson.com
