Workshop one will help you understand the toolkits and thinking behind setting up a craft practice.  The way you can shape your offer, where you can market your offer and how to manage the day to day.

Workshop two will go into detail shaping your practice into a business plan, how you can have a broad perspective of your business now and in the future, the financial and funding options which are open to you and how they fit during your business journey.

Each workshop will be accompanied by an experienced maker sharing their knowledge and insight into running their own practice, the toolkits they use and their advice on pitfalls to avoid when running a business.
