Skill-focused workshops to follow Business of Art taster sessions


After the engaging Business of Art sessions, we are now planning a series of skill-focused workshops which are set to take place in Huddersfield and Sheffield. 

These are to follow the taster sessions delivered by Magdalen Bartlett, an arts manager & creative business advisor, who has provided her mentoring to potential and current artist-associates and put together engaging sessions with interactive exercises and a practical checklist, all designed to locate areas which most of the artists struggle with professionally.
