Arts & crafts

What's this about?

Fancy working in art or crafts?

This involves coming up with your own ideas or following a customer’s design and then creating and selling a painting or product.

For instance, you could be painting a portrait of a pet for an owner, designing and making jewellery or restoring stained glass windows.

You will need a range of business skills as you may be self-employed and will need to promote your work though exhibitions, craft fairs, and set up your own website.

If you like art, you could also have a job curating exhibitions, or in valuing or buying and selling art as a dealer.
