The module aims to extend on the knowledge you gained at levels 4 and 5 and provide a solid base for your own progression into practice, including compiling an effective CV, using various promotional channels, and marketing your work. Business planning for self-employment as makers, craftspeople or artists, and routes into employment will also be covered. An opportunity will be used during the year to actively test the promotional strategies and material in a live environment such as a craft fair, where merchandising will be explored. The module will include seminars, group discussions and visits to encourage you to engage with the wider creative industries and consider your personal progression. You will produce promotional material relevant to your practice (portfolio, website/social media presence, etc).
