Kate Pickering, Project Manager at Spring Fling (spring-fling.co.uk/) introduces the visual art and craft open studio event and its plans for development into a leading arts organisation. Kate's presentation at Taking On An Intern: How To Clone Yourself and Grow Your Craft Business, focussed on their intern opportunities, primarily the Modern Heritage Craft project which supports young people to work with professional makers in Dumfries & Galloway.
Taking On An Intern: How to Clone Yourself and Grow Your Craft Business was an event for professional craftspeople and makers wanting to explore where to start with taking on an intern or apprentice. It was the first in a short series of events on the topic. The event was delivered in partnership with Business Gateway Edinburgh (bgateway.com/local-offices/edinburgh), in Edinburgh in February 2015.
