Good things come to those who wait...

A few months ago I contacted the team at the Lulworth Estate in Dorset. I had an idea for a collection of artworks based on the iconic landmarks in the area and I wanted to seek their permission to be able to sell the resulting prints through my Etsy shop.

Why do I need permission to sell my own art ?
All of the landmarks I have been researching - Durdle Door, Lulworth Castle, Lulworth Cove etc are on private property. As with the majority of private estates permission is needed if you want to profit from the works you create. In addition, you may also need to pay a fee and obtain a licence.

The good news is that I've met with their Head of Retail, not only to discuss licence requirements but they have also offered me a space within their Gift Shop at Lulworth Cove to sell both my framed and unframed prints plus my greeting cards ! I’ve got the next couple of weeks to finalise the range and get everything printed, framed and packaged ready for the big Easter launch !

The 'Made in Dorset' section - the gift shop signage is being moved to create wall space and the unit to the left will be cleared ready for my work.
