As an artist or creative practitioner you can find many sales channels or places to sell your work. But where are these sales channels and why or how should you use them?

This workshop is designed to showcase a range of ideas and resources that can help you sell more. It will provide great ideas on getting your artwork to market, along with demystifying some of the traditional mind-sets that stop you as an artist to become enterprising and more successful.

We compare some of the online marketplaces and enthuse you with tactics to help you find effective sales channels along with group discussions and ideas for your creative enterprise to move forward in positive way.

This workshop is ideal for new and established people in all creative visual art industries, small businesses, start-ups, community groups, and organisations that wish to expand their reach and sales.


Attendees will go away with a clearer understanding of where and what is required to find new ways to selling their work or uplifting their reputation.  You’ll also learn some tips and tricks and get the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals.


This workshop is written and delivered by Culture+ Business Developer Andrew Knutt who is a well-seasoned creative professional from a range of creative and business backgrounds including art, business development, marketing, funding and creative personal development. Well known for his informal and optimistic approach to delivering business focused workshops and events, Andrew’s extensive experience in all fields means you’ll always go away with great ideas and feel enthused about moving your creative enterprise forward.
