The Visiting Artist Program will provide a two-day workshop in craft entrepreneurship — how to launch a business, develop and promote product lines and price artwork for wholesale and retail sales — on Saturday and Sunday, February 18-19, during the Buyers Market in Philadelphia.
The workshops are tailored for studio-based artists who make and sell jewelry, fashion accessories and designer products for home or office such as tile, pottery, glass art and other fine crafts.
The nonprofit Arts Business Institute runs the program with a faculty of experienced retailers and artists.
Participants will tour the Buyers Market, the nation’s premier wholesale trade show where artists from U.S. and Canadian studios sell their work to galleries, boutiques, museum shops and catalogs.
In addition, participants will receive a portfolio or product critique from retailers and trade show managers.
