• Fine Craft as a Business
    February 17, 2020
    10:00 am - 2:30 pm
PGC’s Fine Craft As A Business program is a multi-faceted, year-long program for craft artists of any age who have less than two years of experience selling their craft/art.  Our goal has always been to assist PGC members who seek to become professional or semi-professional artisans.  As part of this program, we offer workshops, open to any interested artisan, to help understand and enhance your ability to present and sell what you make.
This workshop highlights several aspects of preparing for and exhibiting at a juried craft show with 3 topics:
  • Applying for a show, including the types of images you typically need for an application.
  • Setting up an attractive booth – from basic structural and safety considerations to displaying your work in an attractive manner.
  • Meeting and greeting customers, closing a sale and dealing with “difficult” customers.
We will have an interactive exercise in setting up a booth, so please bring 2-3 examples of your work, including any display equipment you use.
Presenters include Master Artisan Paula Lewis, enamelist and PGC Vice President, Standards; and Master Artisan Dan Hayward, stained glass and fused glass, PGC Board member and workshop instructor, and Master Artisan, Carol Heisler, Quilter, and Fine Craft Fair Manager.
