Register your interest in joining our next cohort of Making a Living: Get Ready for Christmas!
Most craft businesses see significant revenue over the Christmas period - with averages of 60 - 90% revenue taken over this time. This is the time for gifting and a time for making, with the opportunity to group with friends and colleagues at creative workshops.
In the 'Get Ready for Christmas' programme the Yodomo team will take TEN UK-based artists, makers and craftspeople over a six-week period on a programme to ensure that they are as best prepared as possible for the Christmas period.
NEXT AVAILABLE COHORT DATES COMING SOON
Yodomo hosts the popular Making a Living online learning programme. We regularly hear from artists, makers and craftspeople that they are looking for structured learning programmes to help get them from A to B and achieve their business growth goals.
In this six-week programme, you will be part of a small group who will be taken through a simple weekly programme consisting of 6 x 2-hour workshops.
Workshops will be led by Sophie Rochester, founder of Yodomo and author of the forthcoming Making a Living book (published Hachette, Nov 2021), along with specialist guests. Sophie has led workshops for creatives businesses funded by Creative Enterprise Zone, Mayor of London, Crafts NI, Arts Council England and more.
“We had great feedback from Sophie’s training sessions for Craft NI. They were well-paced and Sophie’s approachable manner made it easy for questions and dialogue. Above all, they were practical and real-world.”
Katherine McDonald, Crafts NI
