Paperback / softback

Inspiring stories from jewellery makers to basket weavers, artists to terrarium makers, printmakers to ceramicists, bring bags of real-world advice and inspiration for those wanting to take their first steps into this new artisanal economy. With more time at home than ever before, the restorative distraction of crafts and making has seen a mainstream resurgence.

So too has the desire to 'make a living' from creating handmade products to sell, or to sell our creative skills.

This new wave of at-home entrepreneurs are using Facebook and Instagram to promote their businesses, Etsy and Not on the High Street to sell their crafts and Paypal and Shopify to manage their payments.

Technology-led businesses are transforming the way in which offline maker businesses are operating - and business is booming. From the founder of Yodomo, the online learning platform for arts and crafts, and with chapters on market research, valuing and pricing your work, branding, marketing and sales, as well as accounting fundamentals and legal considerations, this is a step-by-step guide to getting your idea off the ground, either as a side hustle or as your next major career move.
