Professional Practices

Now in its third year, SCC’s Professional Practices provides individualized support with a focus on helping SCC members grow their craft businesses. This support includes a four-month training program and individual consultations, both offered free of charge to SCC members.



We are currently running a four month training program, during which over 20 SCC artists are receiving business training specific to their needs. The program runs late January to late May 2019. It’s a mixture of group discussions, one-on-one meetings, and course work focusing on business development for a professional craftsperson. Tackling the Tough Questions is closed to new entrants at this time.


One-hour meetings are available to provide individualized support to help grow artists’ craft businesses. This is an ongoing opportunity for all SCC members.
