Bazaar Bizarre Presents: Pricing Your Handmade Work
Wednesday, May 9, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Brought to you by Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco and TechShop SF...
HOW TO PRICE YOUR HANDMADE WORK
Pricing your own work is one of the trickiest parts of running any creative business. With something as subjective as art and design, you are placing a concrete value on very nebulous qualities, like talent, taste, your personal time, and experience. In this workshop we’ll help you navigate those tricky waters. We’ll discuss topics such as pricing for both product-based and service-based businesses, open-source design, and how to avoid the dangerous pitfalls of underpricing, work-for-exposure and "spec" work.
