the Art of Business
Tailored Workshops for Artists in Business

The Scottish Design Exchange is a social enterprise business, set up to support artists and designers living and working in Scotland. We have two very successful retail stores in Edinburgh and Glasgow which have paid out over £3m to the artists and designers we work with. 

Our Art of Business workshops were set up to give tailored business workshops to artists who are looking to build their businesses into profitable, successful enterprises, that pay a good living. Many artists find it difficult to see themselves as business people and don't believe they can 'run a business'. We have proved time and time again, that they can!

But business can be boring! We cut out all the unnecessary jargon and focus on 5 key areas that help artists to use their artistic talents to their best advantage while giving them the right tools to run a successful business.
