A two hour mentoring session which can be taken in-person in Rutland or via Skype (whichever you prefer), including written notes from our discussion and an action plan (if required). Many mentoring clients prefer a longer session as it allows for topics to be covered in more detail. This 2 hour option will give a more in-depth mentoring session than the standard 1 hour session and is offered at a reduced rate, so is more affordable than purchasing two of the 1 hour sessions separately. Please note, the 2 hour session is more in-depth and focused, therefore the 2 hours must be taken at the same time, not as separate hourly appointments.
After your session, you will also be give exclusive access to a private Facebook group, solely for those who have taken advantage of a mentoring session, e-course, day course or e-book. The group will provide a forum for continued support and discussion so that you continue to learn and develop after your mentoring session.
Mentoring sessions will be tailored to your individual requirements and you will need to fill out a form beforehand. Jenny will contact you after booking to arrange a suitable time for your mentoring session.
Examples of what your session could include are: pricing, mark ups, trade and retail shows, product development, wholesale catalogues, marketing and approaching galleries, amongst other things.
“I first visited Jenny at Itch gallery during my second year of university, where I completed an initial mentoring session and I cannot express how beneficial mentoring has been to me. The sessions have helped me to understand how to approach galleries and also understand the day to day running of an Art gallery itself.
Jenny has played an instrumental part in the success of my career to date. With her guidance I have been able to sell my work throughout galleries in the UK and Europe, I have won awards and funding for my business ideas and am now planning the opening of my very own gallery this September!
If you’re an emerging or even an established craftsperson, I strongly recommend mentoring sessions. Jenny will help you every step of the way and give you the guidance and support you need to succeed in any direction you wish to take your career.”
