The 1st of September marks a pivotal moment for me. Today I have returned to self employment, I spent a wonderful 10 months with Spring Fling, Scotland's Premier Art and Craft Open Studios Event, but it is time for me to return to what I find the most passionate, and that's the jewellery industry.
I have been working for Vanilla Ink one day a week for the past 10 months and in the latter months that day has been spent concocting plans...big plans!
While it's been simmering away in the background while I focussed on Spring Fling, it's now time to give it the attention it deserves but I really need your help! The things I have planned are what I think are the industry needs based on my experience from the past 8 years but I need to find out what your needs are so I can plan a space that centres itself around the what the jewellery and silversmithing industry needs in Scotland.
I am keen to hear from people at all levels of their career; students, start-ups, established or aspiring jewellers/silversmiths.
I would really appreciate you taking the time to fill out the following survey, it is crucial to the development of the new plans for Vanilla Ink. I would also love to hear your thoughts, feel free to comment below or use the survey to share your thoughts.
Please feel free to share with as many jewellers and silversmiths as possible, you can find the link directly to the survey here.
Thank you so much for your time.
