What do we do? Craft Labs

December 21, 2011

HandMade has consistently offered business training to craft artists since our inception. In one six-month period in 2011, for example, we presented a progressive curriculum of 17 educational programs, attended by 147 artists. Topics in the series included “How to Get Your Work Seen (by galleries and collectors),” “Writing an Artist’s Statement,” “Pricing Your Work,” and “Why Buy HandMade.” In designing these programs, we keep abreast of current tools and trends—social media and Internet marketing, for example—and shifts in current market conditions that can give attendees a competitive edge in their businesses.

If you would like to help support HandMade programs, please visit our fundraiser on Indiegogo.
