In the last couple of weeks we’ve been hosting or running events for professional development for creative types.
So firstly we had our first session from David Haden, founder of Creative Stoke. Who took a small but perfectly formed group through the in’s and out’s of self-publishing and e-books.
Here’s is what a couple said about the session:
A most comprehensive talk about the modern technology and what it can do and how to access it, it is good that you have found people willing to share their knowledge with those of us who are just starting out. Thank you
Excellent summary and updating of subject. Presenter’s own practical experience v. valuable.
The session was fully booked and we’re thinking about running another, more condensed session in March. To express an interest just contact us.
We also have a visit from the fabulous Helga Henry who ran a tailored training session based on her courses under her ‘Metapod’ title. We had a range of people looking to set up there own creative business and now are on the right tracks.
Some of the things Helga talked about can be found on her blog: www.helgahenry.com
Here is a bit of anonymous feedback from the session:
As the group was small it was great to be able to talk about my business. I thought Helga was great for making examples pertinent to individul business ideas and making sure noone’s idea was left out.
It helped me clarify my thinking and find starting points.
So thanks to those who came along, and thanks to Helga for coming!
Some particularly relevant information on her blog I think is this here.
As always we host Life Drawing every Wednesday at The Exchange – to find out more and see more great images by clicking here.
We’ll schedule workshops and continue to look for opportunities to host events – but the project space in the shop is a place for you to test out ideas or run your own event. Why not come along and see what’s possible!
One more thing…don’t forget this FREE Event – Total Artwork! from Switchboard.
