25th September, PRACTICAL: How To Price Your Artwork

Result! You have someone interested in buying your work. They ask you ‘How much?’ and your stomach sinks. 

Fear not - if this sounds familiar, book yourself a seat to our talk on pricing your artwork. It’s a tricky one, endlessly subjective and art school educated, or not, no one really teaches you this stuff.

From an overwhelming amount of information, stoic preachings on how to put a price on value, and strange pricing sums and equations spouted by people online, this numbers game can put you in a fluster.

To set you on the right path, we have enlisted the help of Caroline Hussey-Bain alongside James Bayard and Freddie Powell. As head of Tate International Council, and keen supporter of emerging artists, Caroline and her guests will share their tips and tricks, and clear informative steps to arm you with knowledge for you to make confident pricing decisions. 



About Sarabande Foundation

Sarabande was set up by the late designer, Lee Alexander McQueen, who left the majority of his estate to support creative and visionary talent. In addition to providing scholarships and studio space for artists, Sarabande produces a number of events, from the practical to the inspirational.

Sarabande operates from a listed Stable Block conversion in Haggerston, where 15 studios form a creative community with designers and artists from multiple disciplines. Immersed in the hub of East London’s rich creative spirit, Sarabande exudes all that encompasses the creative sphere. The building is home to a plethora of artisans reflecting the multifarious span of Lee’s talent and the variety of craftspeople he worked with his own collections. Amongst others, our tactile artists include sculptors, fashion designers, jewellers, textile designers, painters, performance artists, silversmiths, costume designers, ceramicists, and dancers. Alongside these, Sarabande also houses filmmakers, animators, photographers, digital designers, and visual artists.
