You’ve put in countless hours at the wheel and in the studio, mastering the art of ceramics. How awesome would it be to earn money selling your art?

Are you a hard-working artist feeling ready to take your work to the next level, in terms of both technique and earnings? Are you totally new to the business of selling your art? Do you need experience or more effective results in branding, marketing, and selling your ceramics wholesale and online? Would you like to learn if you have what it takes to be a business owner from artists who have been there, done that, and succeeded? If you’ve answered “Yes!” to one or more of these questions, then this workshop is for you!

This three-day live online workshop will show you how to hone your craft while also developing a brand for your ceramics work, and then how to market that brand to generate sales. In each session, a different successful ceramics artist will showcase the skills that helped them thrive both creatively and professionally.

You’ll get an exclusive inside look at how each of these ceramicists started their businesses, and what it takes to level up from hobbyist or starving artist to thriving entrepreneur. You’ll learn about the business side of things that many artists simply cannot afford to shy away from — and how to adapt that business savvy to your own work.

This workshop will cover:

– Craftsmanship and specific techniques
– Developing your style and creating products
– Building your brand
– Marketing and getting media coverage
– Selling your products wholesale and online
