Maker Information

BACD is proud to partner with Bert Notarius for a series of workshops and meetups aimed at helping artists, makers, crafters, sewists and artisans excel in their business dreams and goals.

The workshops are $30 each:

The Maker Meetups are free! Held on Mar 11th May 20th and Oct 20th.   The goal is to create a common space for Artists, Crafters, Makers , Sewists and Hobbyists to discuss challenges, share successes, create networks and to learn approaches that may grow their own business.  As you know, running a creative business, particularly from home can be solitary. Many of our clients & businesses have said that it would be great to have other people to bounce ideas off of or to share in tips, tricks and things that have worked for them.

These meetups are facilitated by BACD and Bert Notarius. You are also welcome to attend our workshops (there is an investment fee for the workshops.
