Adult Education Wolverhampton is hosting a craft fair to showcase the talents of its Creative Business students later this month.

Visitors to the fair will be able to meet the makers and view and buy products ranging from fabrics and candles to reclaimed and restored furniture and delicious French patisserie. 

Businesses in attendance include Custom castle candles, Dalbero’s Migration Projects, Le Vendome, Little Room, MLArindell, Not Just Paper, Reclaimed and Restored and The Crafty Villain.

Councillor Chris Burden, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Work, said: “Self employment is the perfect outcome for artists, designers and craftspeople.

“However, many have high levels of skill but are unable to find paid work in their chosen subject. Our Setting Up a Creative Business course has helped students to take their creative passion and find out how to make money from it.

They have been continuing to develop their creative skills whilst exploring the skills needed to set up their own business.

“This month’s craft event is the launch platform for our small creative businesses, and I would encourage people to come along, find out about the makers, view their products and even become one of their first customers.”

The craft fair, Small beginning – Developing a Creative Passion, will be held at Adult Education Wolverhampton’s Foyer Reception, Old Hall Street, Wolverhampton, on Wednesday 29 March from 10am to 4pm. Entry is free and all are welcome.
