CALLING ALL CREATIVE KIDS & BUDDING ENTREPRENEURS!
Young Crafty Entrepreneur Q&A Learning the basics of setting up your own Craft Business!
ARTiculations is teaming up with our awesome pals at The Junction Project, for a one time Mini Market Q&A session. This is a chance for your kids (ages 7-13) to learn everything they need to know about selling their wares; we’ll help them plan out *what* they want to create, how to price it, how to photograph it – we’ll cover all the bases!
While they’re learning all these important skills they’ll also have a chance to fill in our 2016 Mini Market Vendor Application for our SPRING Mini Market (to be held on April 10th).
So, to review – if you have a child between the ages of 7 & 13, send them on over to ARTiculations to sign up for this GREAT seminar on the how’s and what’s of creating and selling their wares!
