“I took away valuable points, which I will implement soon.”

As part of our commitment to support artists and makers working in East Lothian, we offer marketing workshops for small independent creative businesses.

Our most popular workshop focuses on essential online activities, relevant, targeted and creative. This workshop helps identify goals and priorities, and how to tell the creative story to the right customers.
