About This Class
What will you learn in this class?
You’ll finish knowing how to design, source, and manufacture your product anywhere in the world in a step-by-step process. You’ll learn basic manufacturing “speak,” prepare for “sticky spots” like vetting factories and ensuring quality control, and hear from a range of guest experts in this field. You’ll walk away with your very own Production Plan that you can use to take your idea from concept to finished product.
For anyone with confidential or sensitive product ideas, please note that this class will not require you to divulge more information than you’re comfortable with. What you share is up to you!
VIDEO LESSONS ARE ONLY SHORT INTRODUCTIONS TO EACH TOPIC. PLEASE SEE THE PROJECT DESCRIPTION FOR FULL CLASS MATERIALS.

This class was very comprehensive and really brought me through the entire process of making a product.
This class was at once very straightforward and rich with very valuable information - great information that only a seasoned manufacturer would know! Liz is a highly articulate, generous and thoughtful instructor. Thank you, Liz!
