This just in from our friend Jacqueline at SOAK Wash (pictured on the right above) - she is hosting another in her series of crafty business workshops, From Maker to Making a Living, throughout the month of May. Jacqueline is a wonderfully thoughtful businesswoman and very adept at many facets of marketing and business structuring. Having her brains on hand for picking would serve any independent start-up or hopeful.
From Maker to Making a Living is a workshop series designed to guide craftspeople through the process of understanding, designing and building their individual businesses. Led by maker and award winning business leader Jacqueline Sava, attendees will be guided through an eight-part series of lectures, exercises and activities focused on the development of their own craft-based business practices.
The knowledge and skills obtained in these workshops will allow makers to successfully balance their personal craft philosophies with the realities of marketing, selling and profiting from their businesses. At the end of the workshop series, each craftsperson will have a custom plan to ensure a successful transition from where they are to where they want to be, and balance their personal craft philosophy with the realities of marketing, selling and profiting from business.
Next Toronto Workshop: Tues/ Thurs May 7, 9, 14, 16, 21
