With the recent rise in popularity towards design markets these days, the ole lay-everything-out-on-a-trestle-table stallholder trick just won't do. Markets, big and small, now resemble rows of pint-sized retail cubes slash art galleries, and Newcastle-based visual merchandiser, stylist, installation artist and consultant Julie Grant is teaching creative makers how.
Hosted by Hunter Arts Network (HAN), artists, designers and makers are invited to attend a specialised visual merchandising workshop on Wednesday 3 August at The Salvation Army Oasis Hunter.
Inspiring guest speaker Julie Grant will draw on her unique knowledge of visual merchandising display and design, styling, and art installation - teaching you how to build your audience by presenting your product in a professional and visually enhanced way.
A Little About Julie Grant: Julie has designed and project managed 'pop up' retailing concepts, designed and implemented visual merchandising strategies for small and large scale retail projects, styled small events, launch parties, photo shoots and catalogues for designers and retailers. In addition to Julie's retail and styling work she practices as an Installation Artist. After gaining a Bachelor of Fine Art from The University of NSW College of Fine Art in 1999 she went on to gain valuable gallery experience working across several roles at The Newcastle Region Art Gallery.
