Visitors to the fair, which takes place at Adult Education Wolverhampton’s Foyer Building, Old Hall Street, on Wednesday 11 May from 10am to 6pm, 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 crafts people. 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.
“Students have been able to develop their creative skills whilst exploring the skills needed to set up their own business. During classes students adapted and refined their products, explored what it means to be an entrepreneur, and learnt how to develop a business plan and increased their self awareness.
“Following the success of the first craft fair in March, we are holding a second fair next month 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.”
Entry is free and all are welcome.
