Producing work through artistic and craft processes on a non-commercial scale usually means every work is unique and results cannot be completely predicted. With visual variances and material instabilities it is important for makers to manage client expectations and ensure the nature of the work is carefully communicated.

In this 1h online session, arts and media lawyer Yasmin Naghavi will discuss how artists and makers and can simultaneously protect themselves and ensure client/collaborator expectations are managed through their terms and conditions. Considering when, where and how to communicate things such as how many times a client can request a design be revised during a commission process; or how a work needs to be cared for to retain its appearance; this session will help think ahead and avoid disappointment/miscommunications.
