Make or break: learn the tips of the trade

Posted at 12:00 pm, November 16, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

Ever fancied peddling your wares down Portobello Road, running a dot com cottage industry from your kitchen table, or becoming a jeweller to the stars? Time to Make It, Sell It. This advice forum shows designers and crafters how to really put their talent to work and make their creations pay. To mark Global Entrepreneurship Week, on Friday 18 November movers and shakers from big name crafters Tatty Devine and Etsy will share some gems about coordinating accessories with business plans. Online marketplace Folksy will also set up shop in the British Library’s Business Centre to talk marketing strategies. In an Antiques Roadshow-esque addition, design debutantes can bring along their most prized pieces to be scrutinised by the expert panel. Kirsty McQuire

For info, see British Library Business Centre.
