Do you make stuff?
Would you like to sell what you make but aren't sure how to price your fine handmade wares? TechShop San Francisco and our friends at Bazaar Bizarre are here to help!
Pricing your own work is one of the trickiest parts of running a creative business. With something as subjective as art and design, you are placing a concrete value on very nebulous qualities like talent, taste, your personal time and experience. In this workshop we’ll help you navigate those tricky waters. We’ll discuss topics such as pricing for both product-based and service-based businesses, open-source design, and how to avoid the dangerous pitfalls of underpricing, work-for-exposure and "spec" work.
