Makers Making a Living

“Makers Making a Living”
Talk and discussion by CC&GG Members+ Museum Tour
         February 15th 1.30 am – 4.00 pm
            Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro

CC&GG Members have many different reasons for pursuing their craft, be it a hobby, an artistic expression or a commercial venture. The latter is the hardest road to take and requires dedication, focus, and organisation in addition to the skill required to make saleable pieces and over recent years making a living from handmade crafts such as Ceramics and Glass has become increasingly challenging.

However, several CC&GG members continue to be successful and we a delighted that Heather Swain (pottery), Jane Smith (glass) and Danka Napiorkowska (multidiscipline) have agreed to talk and discuss their successful working lives. In addition they will be joined by Jenni Phillips with her knowledge of working in Education.

This event will of great value both to artists starting a career and those wishing to gain wider recognition for their work.

Event fee £5
