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

Visitors to the fair will be able to meet the makers and view and buy products ranging from handcrafted wooden jewellery to incredible chocolate confectionary.

Head of Adult Education Wolverhampton Joanne Keatley said: “Self-employment is the perfect outcome for artists, designers and craftspeople. Many have high levels of skill but are unable to find paid work in their chosen subject. 

“That’s why we launched our Setting Up a Creative Business course which is helping students to take their creative passion and find out how to make money from it.

“Over the last 7 months they have been continuing to develop their creative skills whilst exploring the other skills needed to set up their own business. During classes students adapted and refined their products, explored what it means to be an entrepreneur, learned how to develop a business plan and increased their self-awareness.

“We are holding the craft fair to celebrate their achievements and are extending an open invitation to people to come along and see and purchase their products, and chat to them about their experiences.”

The craft fair will take place at Adult Education Wolverhampton’s Foyer Building, Old Hall Street, Wolverhampton, on Wednesday 23 March from 10am to 4pm. Entry is free and all are welcome.
