We are delighted to launch our new support programme developed specifically for NI makers by Design Strategist + Educator Chris Murphy. Bespoke content will be presented through a series of unique workshops which connect into an overall development journey: from the stories our products tell, to the realities of juggling portfolio careers, pricing, funding and marketing.
Over 5 half-day interactive sessions at the iconic Ormeau Baths, Chris will use presentations, exercises, case studies and downloadable materials to cover a wide range of issues faced by independent makers right across the sector. While each session is designed to stand alone, you’ll get the most benefit by attending all five workshops and completing the (enjoyable!) homework tasks that accompany the workshop series.
The Orbit programme places business acumen and creative development on an equal footing. It will equip designer-makers at various stages of their careers and from different craft disciplines with new and refreshed business skills and supports Craft NI’s mission to strengthen business development within the craft sector.
