Workshop: Turning Craft To Business
'There is a market for everything, you just have to find your niche or create one'

What is the point of craft if no one has any use for it? This open discussion will focus on utilising crafting skills to create products with marketable potential. The discussion will include issues such as product desirability, quality, production capacity, quality, pricing and the market place.

This workshop is aimed at the craftsperson and small enterprises who may wish to maximise their potential. Delegates are encouraged to bring along examples of their work.

Patrick will be hosting his craft workshop on Saturday 30 July from 14:00 to 17:00 at the SAFW Arts & Culture Fashion Seminar.
