THE BIG PICTURE: The Everyday Experience Of Braving Your Own Creative Business

  • KLUM HOUSE WORKSHOP 3808 North Williams AvE. #132 Portland, OR, 97227 United States (map)


The Everyday Experience Of Braving Your Own Business

You are an artist doing it your way. You make products by hand and sell them through various channels. If you aren’t there yet, you’re ramping up for the big launch. You visualize the concept, produce it, and sell it. You've started operating your one-woman show, and what you could use now is a little business guidance and support.

BYOB is here to help. In this introductory three hour workshop we will discuss and breakdown the key elements of a creative business model through interactive activity, writing exercises and group discussion. How does your current operation fit into a successful business model? In short, we thoroughly cover the basics of running a business so you can get your bearings and start off on your journey with more focus, intention, and confidence to build a successful business.

Your hosts are artists and makers who have had over a decade of experience running their own creative businesses. They’ve made mistakes and learned from them, received instruction from mentors to increase their knowledge and skill level, and experienced success and joy through their efforts. Ellie and Heather are excited to share with you what they’ve learned and facilitate helpful exercises in a humorous + informative way. 

Be ready to laugh, learn, connect and feel more empowered and knowledgeable in the creative and laid back setting of Klum House. Snacks and drinks provided, but if you have a particular beverage you would like to enjoy, then feel free to BYOB!
