This April I’m hosting my Bossing Wholesale workshop once again for all small creative business owners in and around Bristol looking for some inside know-how on trade shows, pricing and just how to generally master selling to retailers. It’s happening 6:30-9pm, April 18th at Studio Cotton, Bristol.
Having gained lots of first-hand experience of selling to trade I want to pass on what I’ve learnt along the way, much of which has been learnt the hard way! I have exhibited at Top Drawer London twice as well as British Craft Trade Fair Harrogate and now am very proud to be able to say I supply over 50 stockists nationwide with Sky Siouki products and artwork. Selling wholesale has really transformed my business so I’d like to share how it can help to boost your business too in this friendly but very informative workshop.
What I will be covering in this workshop:
- Trade shows: costs and what to expect.
- Pricing your work
- Minimum orders and quantities
- Shipping options and lead times
- Invoicing and payment
- Following up customers
- Selling wholesale through a website
- What I have learnt from mistakes
This time I am collaborating with Aime from Studio Cotton, so the workshop will be hosted in her gorgeous new studio on Corn Street. Tickets are only available through Studio Cotton so head here to grab one now.
Some of the very lovely feedback I’ve received from previous workshop attendees:
“Really friendly atmosphere where you could ask Sky anything business orientated and receive honest feedback.”
“Sky has a wealth of knowledge and provides info that can be hard to find elsewhere.”
“Sky was very informative and professional. Was great to hear about her work and success.”
