Refreshments will be provided at 6pm, with the class running from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. It’s also a great opportunity to meet with other local traders.

The 2-hour masterclass, run by Juliet Borshoff of Design Merchants, will provide training on the core visual merchandising techniques that should be applied to create a strong display as well as reflect your business in the best way. This will also incorporate the importance of a strong street presence and activating your store front.  In the practical part of the session an assortment of props will be used to show how some of the techniques can be applied to shop windows.
