The Build A Craft Business course and book (BACB) has been developed to help makers turn their skills into commercially viable businesses.
 

Both the course and the book will guide you through setting up your business, marketing, sales, fundraising and managing the day-to-day business.

Unlike other business courses in art schools, where students are taught theories in a language which is simply not appropriate for makers, the BACB course and book has been specifically designed for those who learn by doing, trial and error.

Build a craft business course by Gordon Hamme

“This is a simple (but not simplistic), practical guide for craftspeople on the essentials of surviving in business. The author understands both craft, and business; his approach demystifies starting and building a craft enterprise.”

Professor Julius Weinberg
Former Vice Chancellor Kingston University

Introduction to the BACB course and book

This book and course has been designed especially for you as a craftsperson. ​ The ideas for the course – and so for the book – came to me while I was researching for my doctorate at Edinburgh University which was split between the art school and the business school. I became very concerned that business education for craftspeople was not hitting the mark, and I spent a great deal of time working out why this should be.
