Do you make custom jewelry, decorative home items, or other handmade products for sale or gift giving? If so, this course will teach you how to start an online shop for your unique line of handcrafted items.
In partnership with Etsy, a leader in e-commerce for creative entrepreneurs, and Knoxville Entrepreneur Center, The Biz Foundry is offering free classes to help craft makers like you establish an online business to sell your products to a wider market and earn extra income.
Craft Entrepreneurship classes are taught by successful online craft sellers who coach and support participants through every aspect of setting up their online shops. Using Etsy as a learning lab, teachers share best practices on topics that impact new sellers most, including time management, branding, pricing, shipping, and photography, to help them earn supplemental income through their craft business. This program is designed for creative makers from underserved communities. Classes are free and light snacks will be provided.
We are able to offer Etsy Craft Entrepreneurship classes through a generous grant from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. As part of the grant, we are required to collect certain personal information regarding household size and income. This information will be kept completely confidential and used only for reporting purposes.
