Certified Etsy Educator, Caroline Colom Vasquez, graduate of Etsy's Educator Training. Caroline and husband Jose Vasquez-Corbalan, founders of the renowned Etsy shop Paloma's Nest, offer honest, useful advice and ideas on improving, growing, and refining your Etsy shop and online presence as an Etsy seller.
Each attendee will receive a shop critique of their existing Etsy shop in a supportive and encouraging group environment. Gain valuable tips, tricks, and professional opinions from Caroline and Jose; share and network with fellow sellers, and learn even more from listening in on the critiques of their Etsy shops, too.
Class format will include round table discussion and extra Q&A time. We will take a break so you can refuel with a quick visit to the cafe Casa De Luz. You will be contacted before the class date to let us know the name of your Etsy shop so that we will be prepared for your critique!
Private one to one mentoring sessions are also available, in person or online. Contact us directly through Handcrafted Consulting to schedule!
This class is presented in conjunction with Feliz, a weekend celebrating handmade that includes a variety of workshops and features a Holiday Sale, November 2-4, 2012.
