Our panellists use online platforms like Etsy as well as blogs and social media to build followings and strengthen their brands. How did these makers set-up their businesses and what have they learnt along the way? What successes have they had and what did they wish they'd known when they first started? Panellists will include Stephanie Binks of 'Button and Loop' children's clothes, Illustrator and Animator, Gabriella Ditton and Sculpture, Ray Noakes.
