etsy in richmond

the craft/material studies program at VCU presents Making Meaning and the Marketplace next thursday, april 3 from 5:00-6:30 p.m. at the grace street theater. etsy founder rob kalin will present a program to bring new ideas on how students (and designers alike) can market their work. the program is dedicated to exploring the next generation of craft artists and their burgeoning influence in the market and culture.

i think it's so exciting. with shops in town like ours now catering to the handmade, the rise of etsy and great indie design blogs and a travelling series like this, you can just feel that we are all on the cusp of something great. mass production watch out! ;o)

just a tip, the grace street theater is not that big and i've been locked out of many a great lecture, so show up early. enjoy! k&m
