With a week to go until we hold the Etsy Business School at The WI Centennial Fair, we wanted to give you a bit more information at some of the events we’ll be running across the four days.
The Etsy Business School will be the go-to area for anyone interested in setting up or growing their handmade business. We’ll have a bunch of great people on hand throughout the weekend to give you the basic tools needed to start making money from your hobby. Whether you’re an existing Etsy seller, or are new to us, we’ll have something for everyone.
Join us for our photography session run by Etsy admin. This speedy photography lesson will review different techniques and easy set ups you can do in your own kitchen. If you’re in need of some top tips for photography then don’t miss this great opportunity.
