About The Art of Presenting Craft
The Art of Presenting Craft is a bespoke workshop programme aimed at mid-career designer-makers. It consists of four workshops focusing on personal and professional development as well as business development issues pertinent to more established craftspeople. The workshops will take place fortnightly in February and March 2017.
The underlying theme of the workshop series is the professional presentation of craft in order to further the careers of designer-makers. By emphasising the importance of the high quality presentation of work for retailers, galleries and in applications (for funding, awards, trade shows etc.) we will help mid-career makers develop the quality of their work, hone their brand identity, identify and connect with new markets, and grow both as practitioners and as businesses. The workshop series will be practical and interactive, and will ‘join the dots’ between making, marketing and selling.
