Workshop Outline:

Do you struggle with displaying your products as a collection either on a market stall, trade show, shop setting or when organising a photo-shoot? Join Sinead Koehler, Founding Director Crafty Fox Markets and Leona Thrift-Ola Stylist and Founder of the Lucky Dip Club in this practical 2 hour session and learn the skills which will help you to increase the sales of your work.

Facilitators:  Crafty Fox Markets take place seasonally across London, showcasing a curated selection of designers and makers. Sinead Koehler started Crafty Fox Market in 2010.  At the time, she was selling handmade jewellery online and at markets alongside a full-time job in event management.

The aim was to shake up the traditional craft fair and create something fresh incorporating a bar, DJs and workshops. Crafty Fox Markets currently take place in Brixton, Dalston and Peckham. Demand for stalls is high with around four applicants per place.

The ethos of Crafty Fox is to support and promote designer-makers.  Those who have been trading for less than 12 months can apply to the ‘Crafty Fox Uncovered’ scheme for reduced price stalls
