In August the lovely folks at Folksy are putting on a two day event of talks, workshops and demonstrations centered around the theme of improving your handmade business. Whether it's learning a new craft, honing your photography or blogging skills, or getting some fantastic tips and advice from some seasoned pros...
We're bringing together experts in branding, marketing, social media, photography, selling, making and creating, all with the aim of helping designers and makers get better at what they do.
As well as lessons from all the clever clogs you'll also have the opportunity to see demonstrations from skilled makers in screen printing, lino cutting and sewing skills, learn how to take killer product shots in our photography workshops and grab some one to one mentoring on the StartUp Britain Bus.
With a picnic lunch and local ice cream available, what's not to like?"
