Need help selling your creative craftwork?

Craft Development Workshop Invitation 2011 

Nordic Economic Development Corporation, in partnership with CBDC Nortip, would like to invite you to a Craft Industry Development Workshop showcasing new opportunities in the craft, gifts & apparel industry for the region.

 Craft Industry Development Workshop                                                                                                                               Plum Point Motel, Plum Point, NL                                                                                                                                            10:00am – 4:00pm                                                                                                  Thursday, May 19th, 2011

This all day workshop will begin with a presentation on Pricing and Promoting your Craftwork with provincial craft development consultant Brenda Stratton. Pricing is one of the most important steps in making any business a success and developing great promotional materials is part of adding value to your work. The workshop will also provide insight into funding programs offered by CBDC Nortip around a new social enterprise idea. We will also look at online tools for Craftspeople to sell their craftwork worldwide. The workshop will conclude with discussion on a new Regional Craft Guild to look at training and selling goods as a collective group.

About Live Rural NL

I am a youth living in rural Newfoundland & Labrador that will share stories of culture, tradition, heritage, business, travel, geography and other posts relating to any rural. I completed a Bachelor of Commerce Hons. (Coop) degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland & Labrador. I currently live and work on the Great Northern Peninsula, where I was born and raised. However, I have lived and worked internationally and travelled to more than 30 countries around the globe. On October 11, 2011 I was elected the youngest Member to Represent the people of the Straits -White Bay North in the Provincial Legislature of Newfoundland & Labrador.

  1. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

  2. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you should publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but
    typically folks don’t speak about these issues. To the next! Many thanks!!
