Student Market Stall Success

This month students and staff at RNIB College Loughborough have held stalls at both Melton Mowbray and Loughborough markets. The Art's Centre and Craft Studio has been busy building stock, enabling students to develop their skills in setting up a workspace, cutting, gluing, threading and choosing colour combinations. Due to the limited space, the students had to choose to stock items which had sold well on other market stalls. The handmade cards and table confetti were extremely popular along with the bunting, which completely sold out! The Irresistible Cupcake Company, the new student cake enterprise also had a delicious selection of cupcakes for sale. The stalls were a great opportunity for students to develop their communication and numeracy skills and a good time was had by all involved.

"The Arts Centre students really enjoyed running the market stalls! They chatted to and served a variety of customers, using the customer service skills they have gained whilst at college." Sarah Jane, Arts Centre Trainer.
