Calling all makers.

Want to learn how to sell and promote your design products and handmade gifts, acquire exciting new skills, and make some extra cash? Of course you do!

Through our Makers Markets, we give London Met’s talented designer-makers and craftspeople the opportunity to become real world market traders and online sellers.

Learn how to.

Set up your store/stall

We’ll give you a tour of the best online platforms to sell from plus an overview of what makes a homely in-person market stall

How to sell effectively

Learn how to target customers and drive visitors to your store or stall through networking and social media

Presenting your wares for sale

Through professional pictures or a well designed stall, discover how to present your products and get them ready for sale

Pricing your products

Dive into pricing that factors in your time. As setting your prices is not simply putting a number next to a currency symbol
