We’re delighted to announce that we have two new Makerhood directors, so here’s a quick introduction.
Gabriela is a mixed-media artist, maker and teacher. She is an enthusiastic twitterer who also uses Facebook and Instagram regularly for her business. She has recently discovered Steller , which may well become her favourite social media platform soon.
Other things she’s done along the way include working in mental health rehabilitation, setting up an import business, managing two shops and a gallery, running a ceramics studio and organising art and design fairs in semi-derelict London buildings. Gabriela attended Camberwell School of Arts in the 1990s and has lived in the local area since 2001.
Jonny is a photographer and artist with a professional background in broadcasting and visual effects. He is part of Modern Eccentrics, a crafting and artistic collaboration created with his partner.
Jonny is an expert blogger and his preferred social media platforms include Pinterest, Flickr and Tumblr. Having originally studied car design and subsequently television systems, he has, amongst other things, taught for Apple, edited commercials and promos, worked as a freelance photographer and run bookshops.
Welcome to both Gabriela and Jonny!
If you’d like to say hello in person, come along to our November Makers’ Club meeting, where they will be talking about how to succeed at social media.
What sort of person are you? Do you tweet or tumble, do you flickr or pin? There are now so many social media channels that sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start… and attempting to keep a presence across them all can feel overwhelming!
This session will explore different options to help you to decide which ones are best suited to your personality, strengths and interests. We will also look at how you can use these platforms to promote your pre-Christmas sales and events, and discuss how to get the most out of your online presence.
All creatives, makers and designers are welcome.
When: Monday 7 November, 7-9pm
Where: Brixton £ Cafe, 77 Atlantic Road, London SW9 8PU
Cost: Free for members, £5 plus fee for non-members via Eventbrite
