Maker Sessions: Master Track

Master Maker Track is designed for makers who are ready to cut back on shows and explore other options. We have invited experts and other community resources to offer feedback to level up your creative businesses. Breakout time will follow a panel discussion or presentation in a round robin or a small group share with the session instructor(s). Master Maker Track will guide professional makers who have been a part of the market scene for a few years on how to level up their creative businesses: moving into a larger studio space, hiring, more traffic through websites, social media and online markets, collaborations on new lines, wholesale and merchandising, funding options and opportunities, business finances and in depth tax talk, that will lead to our annual Creative Catapult event on October 9th where each Master Maker has the opportunity to pitch an idea on how they plan to level up their business to the public. The public will vote and the winner will receive a prize package and $2,000 from Crafty Mart to get them started.
