Professional Development

Series of Online Workshops for Ceramicists

'Making it Work' - 5 workshops for new & established ceramicists.

Closing date: 15 Apr 2024

The Design Trust is proud to announce a new partnership with membership organisation London Potters to host a series of 5 short but in-depth online professional development workshops for ceramicists and other designer makers at any stage of their career throughout spring 2024.

From creative business planning and setting goals for the year, to fundamental marketing for makers, branding & websites to getting more online sales and creating a more profitable ceramic business … we are covering it!

You can join one or more sessions, or get a discounted ‘package’ price if you sign up to all 5 sessions at once. The programme is created especially for London Potters members but any other ceramicist creating or designing functional products or art is welcome to join and the course is also suitable for other craftspeople and designer makers too.

All 5 sessions will be recorded and you will have access to the session(s) or course programme until 1 October 2024. If you sign up to the entire package then you will get access to a private course hub, where you can ask us any business or marketing questions too.

Each session will be hosted by Patricia van den Akker, the Director of The Design Trust, an award winning creative business adviser, trainer and coach who has worked with 1,000s of creatives over the last 25 years. She has been teaching the professional development programme for the Ceramics department at Central St. Martins for the last 7 years.
