4 x Wednesdays, 2-23 December 7-9pm, Business & Marketing Toolkit with Ingrid Tufts (live online Zoom course) Business & Marketing Toolkit lead by experienced ceramic artist Ingrid Tufts, will present a series of topics that relate to product and business development. Different types of creative making practices, ways of getting work out into the world and how to keep track of the business side of your making practice are covered.

2019 student comments: 

“I loved my subjects. They tapped into a lovely creative headspace. As a creative professional, I did not think it was going over old ground as there is no limit to how much help we need generating creative ideas and getting unstuck.”

“I was left wanting more and more….”

“Appreciated the introduction to artists and craftspeople (past and present) and felt like this helped my overall education as a creative.”

“I was most stimulated by the unlocking of new creative territories via my special object…”

“I was left itching to explore some of these ideas!”

“The course offers a perfect combination of subjects for anyone who’s going to, or thinking of taking their craft more seriously. I found the teachers inspirational and very generous with their knowledge. There are no prerequisites just passion so I felt comfortable joining in. I was very grateful for this opportunity which has inspired me and given me confidence to take the next step.”
