A professional development conference for makers and designers

Taking place over two days, and aimed primarily at those who have been in practice for at least four years, Flourish presents a unique setting to connect with other makers and creative professionals. Develop contacts and conversations that can turn into opportunities, collaborations or commissions; pick-up invaluable industry insight; and take away a set of resources that you can confidently bring back to your practice.

Combining keynote speakers, panel discussions, case studies and practical working sessions, our goal is to unearth what it means to be a craft business – both the challenges and the opportunities, and give pragmatic advice and insight on key and topical issues. And, most importantly, we make sure that the two days give you plenty of time and opportunity to build your own network.

Topics include marketing, branding and social media, ways to increase sales, creating a sustainable practice, how to grow a team, legal advice, mastering the work/life balance, working internationally and more.


Monday 17 - Tuesday 18 June 2019
10am - 5.30pm each day
