Prepare for Success: Crash course in running an arts and crafts business
I will be teaching this workshop at Revere Academy, San Francisco, April 28 and 29, 2012. The hours for the class are 9 am to 5 pm.
This class is not just for jewelers!
While Revere Academy usually appeals to the hands on metalworking skills, in reality, all media have similar issues in running and managing an art and craft of business.
How do you define Success?
Is your work and business approach consistent with your goals and objectives?
Is your definition for success a goal or a wish?
Invest two days in your future.
Align your business activities to the style of your work. The fundamentals of an art/craft business can be rewarding.
Learn how to use social networking, blogs, and your web site to develop visibility.
What are your one year goals? Five year goals?
Is your resume organized and updated? Learn some simple ideas for your business "housekeeping". Is that an oxymoron?
Are your photographic images good enough?
Let’s take a look.
We can discuss the nuance between an O.K. photo and images that will get you into shows and books.
Submit specific questions in advance or plan to be spontaneous in the workshop. The workshop is expected to be responsive to and directed by the participants. There is time for dedicated attention for each person.
