Instructor: Wayne Werner

This workshop explores the reality of making a living as a craftsperson who wants to sell their work from their studio or at craft shows and trade shows. This rapid fire, pull no punches overview of the crafts business discusses everything from the time you price a piece of work until the time you break down your booth. Students are encouraged to ask any question no matter now personal about surviving on the road and in the arena.

Application process, Media category, Sales tax, Pricing work, Display, Lighting, Promo materials, Fire proofing, Weather proofing, Electricians union, Load in, Drainage, Indoor vs. Outdoor, High end vs. Street show, Security issues, Driving, Flying, Taking orders and Taking credit cards are all things that need to be considered when an artist decides to sell work or take their show on the road.

Wayne has participated in over 250 craft shows, from trade shows in exhibition halls to art shows in the park. After 20 years on the road he has survived wind storms, floods, blown transmissions, scam artists, the tax man, the fire marshal, and insane show promoters. This is a fun fast paced class that explores the “second oldest profession in the world”.
