**Due to the risks and challenges posed by COVID-19,we have postponed the remainder of the Craft Your Commerce Spring 2020 Workshop Series. We are working on adapting the events for online delivery or providing suitable alternative, web-based programming to support our crafters and makers in navigating this new economic landscape.**

What do buyers look for when working with local makers? How do you position your hand crafted business to take on large scale commercial projects? This speaker panel discussion will shed light on the process of working with buyers by bringing together a group of designers, architects and real estate developers to discuss how they connect with and go about working with local makers.


Guest speakers: Shelter Collective and Samsel Architects. More panelists TBA.
