The Coastal Carolina Artists & Crafters Guild Inc will promote arts and crafts in Onslow County, and its surrounding areas. The CCAC Guild will accomplish this through education, social functions and events where artists are given a platform to exchange ideas, show their work, and market their craft.
Business Networking with Artists and Crafters (FREE)
Next session is Tuesday January 27th, 2015 from 6:30pm until 9pm.
Doors are open to the public and seminar is FREE to attend. Business Networking with Artists and Crafters is held the last Tuesday of Each Month at the Small Business Center at Coastal Carolina Community College in the Melton Skills Center. We begin with light refreshments at 6:30 pm and take the opportunity to visit with other artisans.
At the Monthly networking sessions participants will receive a Guild Newsletter and List of Area Events, Network with Artisans & Crafters, distribute your business cards, featured Presentations and Guest Speaker. Learn best practices and share secrets of success for effectively operating their arts and crafts business. Topics for each monthly session are carefully selected to enable participants to gain knowledge and experience. The unique monthly topic will center on one or more of the following: discussion of trends in marketing and showcasing art and craft products; best practices for networking; increasing sales; pricing products; exhibiting in art and craft shows and festivals; and website marketing.
This year's session dates are: 2/24, 3/24, 4/28, 5/26, 6/30, 7/28, 8/25, 9/29, 10/27, 11/17 and 12/15.
