Thursday 22nd November 7 til 8pm – Sales for people who don’t like selling talk – £5 + booking fee *SOLD OUT*

It’s no secret that most creative people hate selling. It’s awkward and embarrassing to sell in a face-to-face situation to people you don’t know. This is especially true when selling stuff you have made yourself. We can be such critical ‘parents’ that we sometimes forget that the stuff we make is UNIQUE, PRECIOUS and LOVINGLY HANDMADE and therefore tremendously, staggeringly VALUABLE.

The organisers of the Brighton Craftaganza craft and handmade markets have created this event to support designer-makers with this often tricky face-to-face selling situation. By translating Sales theory for the craft market environment, they will arm you with techniques to help increase your sales in time for the Christmas markets/fairs season.

The presentation will include how to use basic selling theory to open communication, build rapport and communicate just how special and desireable your work is and, finally, some basic strategies to CLOSE THE SALE. After the presentation, a Q&A and group discussion. A handout with the basic points will be provided but you may wish to bring a pad and pen to make extra notes.

Wednesday 28th November 7 til 9pm – Vest/Camisole/Singlet Making Session – £26 per head

This class will take you step by step through the process of making your own vest/camisole/singlet. The garment can be made from jersey fabric or by reusing unwanted T-shirts, you will be shown how to do both. We will begin by preparing the printed pattern, choosing the correct size and cutting the pieces out. Next we will construct the main body of the vest using an overlocker (no previous overlocker experience necessary) and hemming it using a normal sewing machine. Will we then finish the top edges and make the straps using underwear elastic. By the end of this class, not only will you have a great useful garment to wear, you will also have the pattern and know how to construct it, so you will be able to make hundreds of vests at home!!!

You will need to bring: 1 metre of jersey fabric (T-shirt weight, with or without elastane/lycra content) and/or some large unwanted T-shirts (preferably men’s or size large)

We will provide a multisized vest pattern for UK sizes 8 to 16 that you can take home and make countless more vests from, a print out of instructions to take home, sewing machines and overlockers plus all the equipment you will need.  Refreshments are also provided.

Underwear elastic can be difficult to find in sewing shops and haberdashers. Because of this, a range of suitable underwear elastic will be available to purchase at the class for a small additional cost. The class is appropriate for beginner and intermediate level sewers but you must have had previous experience of using a sewing machine. Book here:
