The Elevator Pitch


Wednesday, Apr 10 7:00 – 8:30

What Sets You and Your Work Apart From Others and How to Talk About It

What sets you apart

Wednesday, April 10, 2024 / 7 – 8:30pm EDT

If you had two minutes to tell someone some­thing about you and your work, what would you say?

Join us as we share lessons on how to talk about your­self as a maker, how to speak about your work, and how to create a great eleva­tor pitch. This will be bene­fi­cial whether you’re capti­vat­ing visi­tors at a craft fair, mingling with your peers at a confer­ence, or approach­ing a gallery about exhibit­ing your work. At the end of this session, you’ll be able to compre­hen­sively explain why you make what you make, how to artic­u­late what inspires your art, and what sets you apart from others in the field.

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!
