HCC SBC to offer 'HandMade in America' lab Sept. 4
The Small Business Center at Haywood Community College will offer a free HandMade in America Craft Lab, “Pricing 101 for the Artisan Business Owner: Three formulas for finding your right price,” from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 4, in the Creative Arts Building on campus.
Pricing artwork is not a formula, even though many people want one. 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 artwork. During this seminar, speaker Tara Swiger will address pricing artwork and three formulas for finding the right price.
The Small Business Center will also offer additional fall seminars geared toward the artisan business owner:
— Business Planning for Business Success, 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11
