We offer a here a downloadable Case Study of an actual maker who we call Arty Mabel. It gives a detailed list of what she did to increase her sales when she was exhibiting with us at the Art in the Heart city centre gallery
Not all of it will be relevant to you perhaps but there will hopefully be things you will glean. It will also act as comfort to all artists and makers who know that to earn a living from their art and craft is exceedingly hard work.
We would love to offer this for free, but we need to raise some money for the voluntary side of our operations Art in Shop Windows. Read more about this https://www.artintheheart.co.uk/marketplace/about-us/art-in-shop-windows/
Thanks for supporting us!!
When you have paid you will receive an email thanking you for your order and there will be a link to download the PDF. We hope you find it useful.
