There is a deeply entrenched notion that as a craft maker, you cannot make a decent living (remember the notorious question- is this all you do for a living?). And yet it isn’t necessarily true and we will prove it to you.
Join us for our 4th Jumpstart Thursday as we bust the myth of the “starving artist”. We will be talking about how to “Make Good Money from Your Craft”. Our Guest speaker, Zohra Baraka has been in the handicrafts business for over 20 years, has a turnover of over USD150, 000 PA (and that’s when sales are very low), is constantly showcasing at international trade shows and has developed a product that can only be described as A1.
She will be joined by Joan Karanja, former founding member of The Cooperation of Fair trade In Africa (COFTA) and Jacinta Kioko-Mwaura of Niro Collection.
AND the best part is, to allow as many of you to attend this business changing event, we are offering you an early Christmas Offer- buy 2 tickets for the price of one (1000Kshs).
