Marketing Sessions at Lettie Stuart

19.10.20

Last week, Yasmin Metz-Johnson, founder of Yasmin Tells, visited the Lettie Stuart Pottery Centre in Waterloo, where she led a workshop on how to market the pottery products! With the festive season (and its Christmas markets around Freetown) coming up in a few weeks, the team and students engaged in an interactive morning during which Yasmin organized exercises on how to present the products best, how to mix and match different colours and shapes, and how to deliver customer service.

We are looking forward to seeing the results of the workshop be put into practice!
