London Gypsies and Travellers workshops go from strength to strength, with an emphasis on learning how to become self employed through an application of practical skills.
In the run up to Christmas, LGT ran a six week course introducing young women to floristry and learning skills in becoming self employed. The focus of the workshops was to equip young women with creative skills and an understanding of what is needed to start a business from home. All produced beautiful work and showed interest and enthusiasm for how they could take floristry further.
The business element of the course allows for an understanding of market research, promoting a product, using social media to support your new business as well as using it to sell your products. This two tier model of creative skills, coupled with business skills, was hugely valued by course participants.
We are hoping to run many more courses in 2017 and 2018 using this model. Please contact Clemmie firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
