Event description

Description

Independent makers are responsible for the creation of one-of-a-kind art and the finances, marketing and sales of their business. Tennessee Craft offers an annual, one-day professional development workshop, hosted and co-sponsored by Watkins College of Art to help artists grow their craft careers. Our workshops bring professionals together to share emerging trends and best practices on the most important topics artists want based on our workshop and member surveys.

The 2020 workshop explores value - how do you determine your value as an artist, how do you set a value on your work and how do you express that value to audiences? Successful artists command higher prices than hobbyists because they understand and relate their value and the value of their work. Are you unsure how to make a livable income as an artist because you are undervaluing yourself? This workshop is for you.

The proceeds from the workshop fund the Summer Study Scholarship program in partnership with Appalachian Center for Craft, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and Shakerag Workshops.

Registration begins: 8:30am CST
Workshop begins: 9:00am and concludes at 5:00pm CST
