  • This time last year… | Milomade
    of the main tasks I wanted to accomplish was to revamp my website with a totally new look a more shop based outlook with better text and photography This took far longer than expected but I got a lot of help and support along the way and also was able to hire a copywriter to help me get my copy in order It was an amzing experience totally exhausting but I m really happy with the results and I ve completed the first Design Trust Challenge and got my site ready for Christmas The Next Steps Programme is for Fife based craft and visual artists and is a programme that runs for up to 12 months and is tailored to the individual selected and includes 1 1 mentoring The Next Steps Programme also provides funding up to the value of 6000 that could be put towards research travel development of skills training creation of new work and much more My main goal for the year was to bring Milomade out of the shadows it s been lurking in for too long and work towards doing my first trade show If I want to make a go of Milomade I feel I need to move into the wholesale retail arena and with the grant I ve been able to book a stand at the Brtitsh Craft Trade Fair BCTF in Harrogate in April 2015 The grant has covered the cost of the stand catalogue inclusion display furniture and fittings vinyl text banner my accomodation to name but a few things The grant has also funding new work as well as the development rebranding repackaging and rethinking of existing work to better suit the retail market I ve been able to do a lot of online courses in marketing selling to shops as well as tap into a lot of online mentoring and resources I ve been able to buy new tools and equipment that have helped progress my work and my skills as well as speed up my processes I ve invested in Eco Silver and stocked up on sheet and wire supplies Another opportunity I was able to fund with my grant was a set of classes at Silver Hub Studios in Leith Edinburgh under the tutorage of professional jeweller Lisa Arnott The classes were small with tons of one to one tuition and here I learnt how to make hinges and clasps specific for lockets something I ve been wanting to learn and experiment with for a long time It was an amazing experience and I relished my three hour slot of selfishness and indulgence every week It was so lovely to have breathing space and not have to rush what I was working on Unfortunately down to a shoulder injury I had to cut my classes short as I wasn t able to drive through to Edinburgh for a while but I m hoping I can fund a few more lessons myself in the future as it was

  • Next Steps for Milomade! | Milomade
    in January though after my maternity leave I ve only been able to work one day a week with the odd additional hours here and there and with web design this is pretty tricky to manage as it s like having hiccups you can t get stuck into a project and just as the momentum is picking up you have to pack it all up and leave it until the following week I ve not been enjoying it as much because of this and haven t been getting the same buzz from it at all and I ve also not been able to take as much work on as I used to and instead only dealing with one project at a time I ve found myself relishing any moment I ve been able to spare for Milomade to make things with my hands and the satisfaction I ve been getting from these little moments has far outweighed that of doing any web design So I decided to throw the gauntlet down for myself and challenge myself to change my career and income streams I should be doing what I love for a living and not as a sideline anymore A switch is necessary I want to carry on with web design but I want this to be my sideline now and I d like Milomade to take centre stage I ve been feeling like this for a while now but not had the guts to do anything about it But I bit the bullet recently and got in touch with Fife Contemporary Art Craft to see if they could suggest a mentor or offer me advice on how I can make a go of Milomade and get things back up and running and maybe make Milomade my fulltime job I am so glad I did I blogged about this In August When we went away on holiday in July and I took all the relevent info with me saved onto my iPad and spent many a lovely warm evening with a glass of wine and BBQ sizzling away putting down my thoughts and replies to the questions asked in the forms It wasn t hard to write in fact this was the easiest application I ve ever written I guess it s because I ve been thinking about this for so long and have fantasised about making a go of Milomade and doing it full time and have mentally made short term medium term and long terms plans and goals After we got back I got some photography together updated my CV filled in the application forms properly and sent everything off I had a whole month to wait to find out if I d been selected and I kind of forgot all about it So when I got the email from FCA C saying I d got it it took a while to sink in I was alone in the house with no Milo no Colin and no dog
