Whether your ambition is for a hobby that pays for itself, or a professional operation that is someone’s livelihood, these sessions will give you practical and usable tools to help you protect, produce and thrive. Learning while you enjoy a libation, some local culinary delights and of course great company – what could be better?

Beyond all the great info you'll get from our speakers. The Maker Sessions is also a place to connect with other local creative entrepreneurs! Food and drink for purchase are available at the Art Museum's Cafe. Don't miss this chance to network with fellow artists and makers along with free admission to the Art Museum's exhibits and galleries.

And just in case you missed it: here are some takeaways from last year's session  about "How to Be a Crafty Superstar" as reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Attention Teachers: Need CEUs to maintain your license? Let us know and we will get you a certificate to present to your principal. Learn out to integrate entrepreneurial practices in your classrooms!
