Setting up a Studio and Selling as a Maker

Having a studio and work-space is often an essential step for many maker businesses. You may need large or messy specialist equipment, space to do batch production, and a dedicated place with a community of creatives to develop your business. And once you’ve got the produce you need to know where best to sell it to reach your market.

Come to this session to hear real life experiences about how you can do this and options for selling your work, whether through markets, online, or directly to retailers.
