Monday, 21 March 2022 - Monday, 21 March 2022
The Art Workers' Guild
7 - 8.30pm
Join us for the second in a series of panel discussions held by our Mentoring Committee, exploring the ins and outs of working as a professional artist-craftsperson. The series will give you thought-provoking insights into a successful career as an art worker.
This discussion will focus on design for manufacture, exploring the many aspects and opportunities for artists to make work in volume whilst keeping their own vision and uniqueness. Designing with volume production in mind is an important way for creatives to ensure a living income, and harnessing new technologies allows artists ever greater scope in accessing wider audiences through manufacturing.
The discussion will be followed by a Q&A.
Entry is free and the evening will be run as a hybrid in-person and online via Zoom event. To reserve your place, please register via our Eventbrite page for either in person or online attendance. More details can be found below.
