Scholarships Available for Crafty Mart Maker Sessions
Maker Sessions Begin in March
Craft Your Creative Business! Are you ready to make a living from your craft? Do you dream of selling your wares at Crafty Mart and handmade markets? Want to expand your existing handmade business? Join Crafty Mart for the new and updated Maker Sessions, a 6-week virtual course designed to help you map out a financial plan, establish your audience, sell your products, take professional product shots, market your business, address legal matters, and much more.
Maker Sessions has been reimagined with two tracks for Beginner and Master Makers. Starting in March 2021, Beginner Makers will be given a roadmap from idea to market, culminating in an invite-only show to help you launch your business. Starting in August 2021, Master Makers will be supported with individual and group consulting with business experts and professionals and an opportunity to pitch your product and win cash at the annual Creative Catapult event on October 9, 2021. Stay tuned for Maker Session Scholarship applications and ticket packages!
