Blurb®, the creative publishing and marketing platform, has partnered with Etsy, the global handmade online marketplace, and Moo, the online stationary company, to host a day of workshops on how to start your own creative business.

The workshops will be held on Friday November 5th at Blurb’s pop-up shop on London’s Newman Street and will share insights into about running a micro business and why branding is important, even for the tiniest craft shop.

Showcasing examples of creative, effective and DIY branding, bookmaking and photography in action, the workshop sessions will include:

• How to start your micro enterprise
• Take better photos of your products
• How to market yourself
• Bookmaking session

Free to attend, Blurb’s pop-up event on Newman Street provides the ideal opportunity to get involved and showcase your own work, while discovering how to transform it into a high-quality book or portfolio.
