Last week was the first week of school. As a kid, I always hated when teachers stood in the front of the room on the first day and read us the syllabus, therefore I vowed to never do that in my own classroom.
Instead, we dive in and start creating. On Thursday I presented the first official project to my AP class, they quickly became their own worst enemy… giving themselves too many options, and distracting themselves with things that didn’t even matter.
We all do this, and not just in the classroom. When it comes to sharing your work, you probably get tripped up on what to share. You probably share photos of the process and the finished product, which might result in a lot of likes, but not a lot of sales.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to share ways for you to market and share your products and services that will help your future customer or client to better understand and visualize having your work in their life.
PS: Next, I’m going to tell you how I created that image above, featuring one of my handwoven tops. And if you want to enroll in one of my online classes on marketing, just click the banner image at the end of the post!My creative practice is far from the traditional weaver. When warping the loom I never count the ends, I just go until I feel that it's time to stop. I don't follow patterns, I allow and sometimes encourage the yarn to move as it wraps around the front beam. If a string breaks, I work it into the piece. I create from my soul. I speak to the yarn as we weave together, striving to create the perfect connection, and when we become in sync a fabulous scarf, full of honesty, joy, and personality emerges.
