A Creative ‘In Store’ Workshop – 19th October

On the 1st of June we held our very first ‘In Store’ Workshop aimed at small Creative business owners looking to get their products into Independent retail stores around South Africa. The course was attended by jewellery designers, dress makers, swim wear stockists and various crafty individuals. We were also privileged to have Nadia van der Mescht as our guest speaker who wrapped up the course and gave her tips on how to improve your business. The workshop was the ideal day for our creatives to share their experiences and tips within a like minded environment. 

“Was perfect, it went very quickly, but I guess that is what happens when you enjoying yourself. ”
