ETSY IN YOUR TOWN
Thanks to a generous grant from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, we are able to offer Etsy Craft Entrepreneurship classes in rural communities across East and Middle Tennessee.
In partnership with Etsy, a leader in e-commerce for creative entrepreneurs, and the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center hosts these classes to help craft makers establish an online business to sell your products to a wider market and earn extra income.
Craft Entrepreneurship classes are taught by successful online craft sellers who coach and support participants through every aspect of setting up their online shops. Using Etsy as a learning lab, teachers share best practices on topics that impact new sellers most, including time management, branding, pricing, shipping, and photography, to help them earn supplemental income through their craft business. This program is designed for creative makers from underserved communities. Classes are free and light snacks are provided.
We partner with local Chambers of Commerce, community organizations, and entrepreneur centers to host this program in eligible communities. If you’re interested in bringing the Etsy Craft Entrepreneurship Program to your community, contact us.
