Business Class for Artists in Spruce Pine, NC at TRAC


Jon Ellenbogen and Rebecca Plummer have been operating The Barking Spider Pottery in Penland for over 40 years. In this workshop, Jon will share his experience in running a small, successful business. The concepts and strategies he’ll offer at the workshop can save a crafts business owner hundreds, even thousands of dollars every year!

Class will include topics that often go unexplored by crafts artists—establishing credibility, record keeping, tax considerations, insurance strategies, business practices, operating a co-operative gallery, creating your own crafts show—things you may never have thought of but that are easy to learn and put into place to make your business a success.

Bring questions.

This class is perfect for an artist just starting out and trying to learn to ropes of the business or a seasoned artist looking for greater success with her/his craft.

Class will be held on Tuesday, May 10 from 10 to noon at :

TRAC Arts Resource Center above the Spruce Pine TRAC Gallery at 269 Oak Avenue.

The workshop is free but you must register.
