The Small Business Center of Haywood Community College will offer a free HandMade in America Craft Lab, “Pricing 101 for the Artisan Business Owner: 3 formulas for finding your right price,” Thursday, September 4, from 4 – 6pm in the Haywood Community College Creative Arts Building.

It can be a complicated set of calculations, but anyone can easily learn the various aspects that need to be taken into account when pricing your work.
