What is Launch Your Own Handmade Business? I hear you ask…..
If you are ready to take the leap to turn your creative hobby
into a successful business, then this is the course for you.
We have assembled a line up of fantastic local makers, all experts in their fields, and ready to share their knowledge with you.
Telling your story through social media, small business finance basics, photographing your products, selling online and getting market ready. Over six consecutive workshops, our local makers will lead you through these topics and more.
The course will culminate in launching your business with a stall at the much loved Wild About Melbourne Pop Up Makers Market on Sunday June 24th.
You’ll be joined at this market by your workshop leaders and others that have completed the course. Launching your business in a supportive and successful market is a brilliant way to finish the course.
This course is designed for those starting out. You may have been making for years but haven’t had a market stall or online shop before.
Or you may have had a stall at a few markets but need some skills and confidence to maximise your success?
Or you may have just sat down at the sewing machine or picked up a crochet hook, paintbrush, lump of clay and want to start your creative pursuit with as much knowledge as possible.
Previous participants have gone on to enjoy success at handmade markets but more importantly have gained the confidence to pursue their creative interests.
Friendships and creative collaborations have also developed through this great course.
Numbers of participants in the course are limited to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to gain as much information and inspiration as much possible.
The course, and market, will take place at the delightful Thornbury Bowls Club. Accessible by public transport and with off street parking.
The course fee includes :
Six 3 hour workshops delivered by local makers
One market stall at June 24th Wild About Melbourne Pop Up Makers Market
I can’t wait to meet you and discover your creative talents.
