2016 has brought some really exciting new things for me so far, and we're only a week into it! I have a really awesome second announcement in a few days that doesn't even have anything to do with workshops!
I've taught calligraphy workshops in the past both in hosting them myself and teaching at Paper Source for several years. I love teaching and being able to share my passions and obsessions with others, but I've really strayed away from it for a while now and I miss it! I have so many passions and loves, and anyone who knows me personally know that those passions tend to overflow into all other aspects of my life. There are so many hobbies I've collected over the years, experiences I've learned from, and business mistakes and successes and I want to share that!
That all being said, I've decided to teach a series of workshops throughout the coming year to touch on all sorts of things. My current obsession and the focus of my attention is how to make money as a creative; creating a solid and consistent brand, and using that brand to target your ideal client and learning how to turn that into a money making business. I'm obsessed with studying it and can't wait to share it!
Many of the workshops will be geared towards creative businesses (experienced or inexperienced!), but don't fret! There will be plenty for the hobbyist as well!
2016 brings another big change in my life. I'll (FINGERS CROSSED) be moving soon (yet again. This will make five major moves in two years, in addition to another 6 moves in and out of storage units and a 3,000 mile cross country move). Johnathan and I are house hunting for our forever home and are getting our currenthouse ready to sell. Something that is in the forefront of my mind as we house hunt is finding a home that has a large enough space or studio that I can host workshops in my own home (I mean, how awesome would that be!!). It would make set up a breeze and I would be able to host anything from an intimate class of just a handful all the way up to a full sized class.
Being from California where everything is so spread out, I love how (relatively) close together everything on the east coast is! I would love to also be able to host traveling attendees who are driving in from other cities to attend (Hello, DC and NYC, I'm talking to you girls!).
Right now, I'm asking for anyone who is interested to get signed up so I can see which classes are the most requested and who's interested, that way when I have some dates solidified, I'll be able to let you know.
