In this this, Gillian will talk about how all the seemingly unrelated experiences that have led her here help in running her business. Ie, bar tending, working on farms, hanging exhibitions, waitressing. Every bit of experience can help us in the future, so we shouldn't be disheartened if we're doing something we don't enjoy at the time!
She will also cover a little bit about how I set up my business too, to give first hand experience of what it's like to set up and run your own business.

Satchel is teaming up with Heritage Crafts to showcase some of the nation’s most creative careers. In this live free workshop, Heritage Crafts will introduce students to two inspiring craftspeople who will speak to you about their own journey with craft, and how they have made the best use of social media and video to promote their work.
Denzel Currie is a Streetwear artist who uses the craft skills of rug tufting, hand painting and video to tell stories and create high-end streetwear.
Maisie Jackson is a fore-edge painter, who creates amazing works of art on the pages of books. Her videos on Tiktok have been viewed by millions while her work often sells out in minutes.
