Today is the first day of the Maker Fair at Artcore Gallery, Derby which I am doing with Hatchery Artists. It has been really interesting as I don’t make things to sell. The whole process from deciding what to make, how to make it, when to make it, doing it and then presenting it, packaging it and pricing it has been a steep learning curve. Still haven’t done the pricing bit but, well, it doesn’t start until 5pm. Have I enjoyed it? I enjoyed the making and I probably enjoyed the process as it was new to me. I have not yet worked out how to manage the speculation of what to make/sell/ might sell. I guess that would come in time. One thing is clear though, as a diverse group of artists, it will be good fun to actually meet up and do something together.
