My Business is Growing!

My Business is Growing!

Something Big is Happening! 

I've decided to take a risk and invest in my business! 

My business has been running for about a year and a half now. That time has come with lots of trials and errors, I learnt from lots of mistakes and slowly started to grow my brand and sales. However lately I feel like I am in a bit of a cycle with my business. 

My main source of income comes from my market sales. I love attending markets and meeting all my customers in person. I get to hear their thoughts and opinions on my products and what they would like to see from me next.

However, selling at markets or even online is very difficult when it's just a one person show. I work day and night making pieces, waiting for them to be fired, glazing them and then I spend hours in the sun at the markets. If I have a good day, I then sell a lot of pieces which is great however then I am left with only a few pieces which means I can't do another market until I make more items which means I'm back on the cycle of grinding out more pieces. 

Don't get me wrong, I love what I do, it just gets very defeating when I am not getting the income, I need for all the hard work I put in. So, this is when I decided it was time for a change. 

I have rented out a space in a creative studio to be able to hold my own pottery classes. This is something I've wanted for a very long time, and I've had so many customers ask me if this is something I do. So, I am so excited to say that it is finally happening. 

As it is a small space, I will only be conducting one-on-one classes or 2-person classes, however I am very excited to be able to be present and super intentional with each and every one of my students. 

Here are the classes I have available:

  • One-on-One Hand Building Class - perfect for someone looking to get creative without the pressure of trying out the pottery wheel. 
  • One-on-One Wheel Throwing Class - this class is great for anyone wanting to step outside their comfort zone and try something new with their creativity. 
  • 2-Person Pottery Class - Great idea for date night or bring your bestie along for a fun and creative class that will be filled with laughter and craziness. 

I've made it so that booking a time is very flexible and is up to the person's daily schedule. Whether you work all day or work all weekend, you can book in a time that works perfectly with your everyday life. 

I'm so excited to see what people make and I hope I can have a positive impact on people's lives through my classes. 

Feeling like trying something new or just need to get away from reality for a little. Book a class today!
