VIRTUAL: Craft Entre
VIRTUAL: Craft Entrepreneurship-Learn How to Use Etsy to Sell Your Craft Products
Hudson Library & Historical Society

Thursday, Mar. 4, 6:30 p.m. (March 4, March 11, March 13, March 18 & March 25)
Do you already 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, the library is offering free virtual 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. 

The virtual classes will be taught by instructor Karen Koch, a local mixed media artist who has extensive experience with using Etsy to sell and promote her art.  Karen studied studio art and majored in drawing at Denison University.  Her studio, Life Needs Art, located inside of Uncommon Art, an art studio and gallery on Main Street in Hudson, features modern art inspired by nature and nostalgia.  

Participants must fill out an application to apply for the Etsy course. Applications are due by Thursday, February 25.
