Event Details

Have you ever dreamt of ditching the day job and turning your passion for making into a profitable business?

As part of The Forum’s Makers Month festival, Norwich Millennium Library’s Business and Intellectual Property Centre have brought together a group of inspiring local business owners to share their stories and spill the beans on how they created successful enterprises and made their crafty dreams a reality.

Our ace panellists use online platforms like Etsy as well as blogs and social media to build followings and strengthen their brands – making the most of their intellectual property. How did these makers set-up their businesses and what have they learnt along the way? What successes have they had and what did they wish they’d known when they first started?

This free evening talk will be compered by the Forum Trust’s Jayne Evans, the organiser of Makers' Month and a keen crocheter and dressmaker herself. Guests in the audience are encouraged to ask questions. 

We hope this event will inspire more makers to take the plunge and share their love of their craft – and their products – with a wider audience.
