February Makers’ Club: Creative retail

Retail is a key way for creatives to sell their products – but it’s not always easy and there’s lots to think about! Our next Makers’ Club will look at working with permanent retailers as well as the ever popular option of pop-up shops.

  • AnitaAnita Thorpe, founder of Diverse Gift Shop in Brixton, will go over her tips on pitching your products to shops – how to present yourself and your product, what to think about before approaching retailers, and how to follow up.
