Styling & Staging Your Fiber Art - Online Workshop with Mel of The Weaving Honey Bee

Unit price per

Following on from her insightful workshop in May 2024, which empowered weavers with essential digital marketing skills, I am delighted to welcome Mel, The Weaving Honey Bee to join us for a further online class which will help you to style and stage your fiber art in photos for your social media channels.

This workshop will provide an online group setting to garner ideas about how to create a storyboard for your social media platform to give your brand and fiber art work a consistent feel. This includes learning how to bulk shoot photos and videos, planning how/when to post your fiber art, creating posts vs creating stories and how to simplify the social media process in a way that exhibits your work and does not eat into your creative time.

Here's a few words from Mel on why this workshop topic is important to her to teach:

Hello! I’m Mel and I’m new to the weaving community. From a young age I have always enjoyed creating art and telling stories. After seeing a friend of mine complete her own '100 days of water-color art', I decided to make one set of potholder looms every day for 100 days and create a social media post for each set. I transitioned from social media posting into wanting to find creative ways to display my art using digital media and marketing. 

Teaching digital marketing for potholder weaving is crucial as it empowers artisans to preserve a traditional craft while adapting to the digital age, expanding their market and audience. It offers them the necessary tools to not only showcase their craftsmanship but also to navigate the online sphere, fostering sustainability and growth for their craft businesses.

The workshop will take place via Zoom on Saturday, June 22nd 2024, 10am-12pm (PT)

Cost per attendee: $50. 

The class will be held online via Zoom and we very much look forward to seeing you on June 22nd.  Details of how to access the workshop will be sent closer to the date. If you weren't able to join Mel's first online workshop, I recommend the recording of the class which you can find here.

A recording of this second workshop will also be provided after the event by email, for all paying attendees.
