Sheridan College – W 166
Thursday 05/18 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
All skill levels welcome!
Workshop Description: Want to start selling your work at shows but don’t know where to start? In this class we’ll be going over everything I’ve learned from vending over the past 7 years – things like: red flags, human psychology, booth placement, map viewing, price adjusting and estimating, rules and challenges to expect, gear you should pack, and strategies to make sure you have an edge over your competition.
Selling at a show is not something you want to walk into blindly. The best way to get the most out of this class is to come armed with questions. I can give you all the advice of things I’ve tried and learned from, but every seller is different and we need to find techniques and strategies that will work for you.
Materials to bring: Paper and pencil if you prefer to take notes, plus maps or event links of any shows you want to attend
