How is it possible to make a living from a craft? Find out by following the Small Business Connect series “Crafting Your Business” over the next nine editions, starting with your product idea.
- Product idea
- Prototyping & sampling
- Packaging & packing
To get started or expand your business you need to have a skill or an idea for a business or product. But more important than this, you must have motivation for doing something with your idea.
If you want to create a successful craft business, you need to understand that every product, involves a journey. The Crafting Your Business series is based on the e-book, Growing Your Creative Business – a guide for craft producers, designers and other creatives which was commissioned by the Department of Arts and Culture and developed in partnership with the Cape Craft and Design Institute (CCDI)
