Making it happen!

Working with Wirral Libraries we’ve been delivering some maker sessions and creative entrepreneur workshops as part of the Make It! project. So far we’ve worked with a team of library worker to help them build a brand and prepare to launch products such as mugs, coasters and tote bags with local artwork into the marketplace. This has included:

  • Delivering a branding workshop in which they created their brand identity
  • Supporting the team to develop basic graphic skills and use Canva to create a logo and promotional materials
  • Develop a social media plan with the team
  • Research competitors and production costs to create a pricing structure

Dofc5gZXkAA3c7cThe next steps for the Wirral team is to do a research visit to shops, galleries, museums and libraries to research how they are selling their products and then bring this back to final workshop on selling products.

Whilst we’ve been busy on this creative entrepreneur programme, we’ve also been up-skilling library workers in different maker skills – from e-textiles to lino printing – and lots more in-between. This CPD programme is funded by Arts Council England and has been custom built to embed skills into the infrastructure of Wirral Libraries so that creative maker opportunities can continue, long after the project has come to an end.

Watch this space to the products that the team makes!
