As artists, we’re fortunate to have a variety of revenue streams to sell our art…shows, commissions, and consignments, to name a few. If you’re looking for another opportunity to grow your creative business, consider wholesaling. Transforming your work into products and selling them to brick & mortar retail shops can be rewarding…from expanding your audience reach, building name recognition, to having a consistent income. This series of three workshops by Pamela Joy Trow, will demystify the wholesale process, and help you decide if it’s a viable selling opportunity for your art business. These workshops will benefit visual artists, crafters, and makers who are new to wholesale.
