Working with the Market - A panel discussion

The Art Workers' Guild
7 - 8.30pm

Plumed Horse- Christopher Brown


Join us for the fourth 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 working with the market; engaging with existing markets, and finding or creating new ones. Our panel will share their experience and stories of individual successes and failures with you.
