On of TMAG’s aims is to help members make the most of the facilities offered by the Guild. To this end, we are offering approximately monthly workshops/socials over the next few months – so do come back and see what’s on offer. If you missed one and would like it run again, then get in touch with TMAG and ask.
Please let us know if you are intending to attend: one was not attended by a single member and we don’t want to waste time if you don’t want to attend!
(If you aren’t a member but would be interested, find out how to join here.)
Each event will take place in the Upstairs Gallery.
How to arrange your first exhibition
(what to do and find others to exhibit with) at 7.30 on Tuesday 4th December. Specially designed for people who have not had their own small group exhibition before – don’t be shy! (AKA “Meet your Maker”!)
The layout of the exhibition and sales space
at 7.30 on Tuesday 11th December. Contribute to the future development of the Downstairs Gallery with your ideas for how it should evolve next year. Don’t leave it up to the committee and then complain that you don’t like the way things have been done!
Making the most of the TMAG website
- two drop-in sessions on Tuesday 15th January from 2-4 or 5-7pm.
Lois Wakeman, Tricia Scott and Irene Benson will be hosting afternoon and evening workshops on Tuesday 15th January in the upstairs gallery. Bring your laptop or iPad, words and pictures, and we will help you create your own web page on the TMAG site, learn how to keep it up to date, and also how to add details of your own events. Take the chance to get free publicity and a link to your own web site if you have one. If there’s time, we’ll touch on using Twitter and Facebook as well.
Please let us know which session you will be attending so we can arrange for enough help, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Web sites for artists
Lois Wakeman will be sharing her practical expertise on making an effective and user-friendly web site to promote your art or craft. Not just the technical side (“how can I make a site that’s easy for me to change without paying someone to do it for me?”), but also how to plan and write content that will entice visitors to spend time finding out about you – and hopefully lead to commissions, approaches from galleries, or sales. Not to mention the tricky issues of marketing and search engine success.
Free handouts for people attending – simple, clear instructions to take home and use.
Time and date TBA.
Past talks have included Framing your work to sell, and Photographing 2D work for reproduction, The importance of a sketchbook.
