Craft Entrepreneurship is an educational program that equips creative people in underserved communities with the knowledge and skills to start Etsy businesses and earn supplemental income through their craft.
In each city, Etsy partners with local organizations that are working to empower lower income residents through creative and interactive programming. Each organization is responsible for recruiting students who have craft and manufacturing skills, and who need support in applying their talents to entrepreneurial endeavors.
This support can be best provided through in-depth education and hands-on experience. Etsy has created a curriculum designed to be taught in person by experienced, local Etsy sellers who we train and prepare for the classroom. Participants put their learning into action by setting up and running an Etsy shop and practice strategies for success across a variety of selling environments.
Detroit's Build Institute CEP is a 5-week, 12-hour course with sessions running Fridays April 10th, 17th, 24th and May 1st and 8th. All sessions run from 6pm - 8pm, except the April 17th class will run 4pm - 8pm for a special product photography session.
All classes will be held at the Ford Resource and Engagement Center (2826 Bagley Ave, Detroit MI). The cost of the course is $75 for BUILD graduates and $100 for non-BUILD graduates. You must pay the full cost in order to reserve your seat in the course.
