Balancing your creative practice

Wednesday, April 24, 2024 / 7 – 8:30pm EDT

Whether you’re just start­ing out or an estab­lished small busi­ness owner, it’s easy to feel over­whelmed by the sheer number of respon­si­bil­i­ties involved with manag­ing the logis­tics of running the busi­ness side of your prac­tice vs. actu­ally making your art. 

Learn how to best manage your time and set bound­aries when navi­gat­ing the compet­ing demands of updat­ing your website, posting on social media, manag­ing inven­tory and sales, consumer outreach, and still making time to work in your studio. Addi­tion­ally, we’ll provide prac­ti­cal advice on knowing when to seek assis­tance and carving out personal time to recharge. We aim to equip you with the tools and strate­gies neces­sary to strike a balance between your day-to-day oper­a­tions and creative pursuits.

The Furni­ture Society would like to thank the Schooner Foun­da­tion and The Bresler Foun­da­tion for support­ing this initia­tive. Without their support, the Nuts & Bolts profes­sional devel­op­ment program­ming and schol­ar­ships would not be possible!
