Pop up exhibition in Porthleven for three Breakthrough businesses
Collaboration is key for three Breakthrough businesses
Three Breakthrough creative business are collaborating this week on an exciting seven day pop-up mixed show of paintings, ceramics and jewellery. The trio are using this show to help them reach new customers, get feedback and see how the August crowds of Portheleven respond to the work.
Luke Knight from Luke Knight Paintings said:
We are hoping to test the MVP theory in real time – something we learnt from the Breakthrough workshop. ‘Minimum Viable Product’ means getting your product or service to the market quickly and without too many overheads to see how customers respond to the rawest form of your business idea. It has helped us test new business models – for me I was wondering whether or not I should create prints or sell postcards for instance or if the paintings alone would suffice. I have learnt so much from getting out there, being brave and listening to the feedback and I am delighted with the response.
The opening night saw over 100 people who came to see the beautiful work from the trio of Breakthrough clients. Jewellery designer and maker Louise Brassett from Shore Fine Design has been unexpectedly inundated with requests for bespoke commissions as customers seem to enjoy hand selecting sea glass features and co designing their designs making them all the more personal. Lesley Newman Ceramics has been showing her most prized collection of bowls and ceramic forms – her work is made from local Gabbro clay and her glazes are made with ground serpentine from the Cornish rock.
Be quick if you havent made it to see the work – it is open until Friday lunchtime. For more information click here
