  • Grants??

    I am starting my own handmade card business in the south cheshire area and have heard a large amount mentioned about grants for the arts and crafts industry....what are they and how do you go about applying for them?...more to the point, is there anywhere specifically where you can get more information about them?

    Anyone????...lol

    I'd be interested in this info too - I live in Yorkshire but work in Manchester.

      When I started my business a couple of years ago I received a number of different grants to help me get started. I suggest that you contact you local Business Link as they are very helpful with getting you started in business and my business link adviser seemed to know where to apply for everything!!
      Good luck.

        You can check with your local County Council, I had a Business support grant from my council towards my vacuum forming machine.

          I'd suggest the contacting the Arts council or Crafts council via their websites they have some good info and links (they seem to concentrate on people under 25yrs or those who have done a degree though) - migh be worth a look anyway.

          Another one to try would be -
          WIRE (women in rural business) - just type in WIRE in a search engine, that should bring it up.

          Good luck!
