How to se your ideas – Skill development and education for those entering the Cottage Industry 3.0, education can run from “You Tube University” or “Local Classes” to DIY experimentation.
Artist – in the visual category – or Textile artist- pattern and production help is available this weekend only NY or via skype for home, accessories etc – If you need a pattern or item for Holiday 2013. THIS WEEKEND. One of the designers who works with me has agreed to help. She is a master technical designer.
Frankly it is worth it to invest rather than start a pattern making /grading if you intend to sell between now and next spring. GREAT for artist who want to to offer painted items. I also have one dressmaker and a manufacturer. Also Reminder today is the Last day for free Listing on www.demarketpace.com/buylocal – curating the best Fashion Art media textiles by artisans, crafters, designers to my over 20000 network.
NY only- In setting up Demarketpace we reaized that many creatives needed affordable we made gift items! So I negotiated with a couple of my colleagues. While a short term solution they will accept only holiday 2013.
Long term soution – Spring 2014 can be discussed but may be executed post holiday! It may be wiser to invest in trained technical help rather than DIY or taking a class. Quality takes Years to develop. January we will focus onlongterm soutions. We’re about soutions and if artist designers and crafters do NOT earn during the holiday season then they cannot take casses etc
