Turning Archive 2007
>Aloha to the group,
We're back from Hawaii, so I will be moderating the Wednesday night Turning Chats again. A very big "Mahalo" to Ron for stepping in to moderate the chats while I was in paradise... :-) I just got back a couple of hours ago, so the chat topic posting is a little late... Apologies in advance.
Topic for the 5/30/07 Turning Chat:
Collectors - How to market your turnings directly to individual collectors. One of the best ways to sell your woodturnings is through private placements (without the assistance of a gallery). The big advantage with private placements is you keep 100% of the sale price, instead of the wholesale price.
How do you find collectors who are interested in collecting wood/woodturnings? How can you encourage a collector (who has never collected woodturnings) to establish a collection, or buy that first piece. How do you walk the line with private placements to collectors and still keep your galleries happy and on board? Join us Wednesday night for discussions on marketing your woodturnings through direct placement methods.
We will start the chat with a 15 minute review of 2 selected works by our WC friends.
If you are interested in having your work reviewed at the turning chat, remember to email Ron 1 or 2 (max.) photos of some of your recent work (completed or unfinished, in process etc.) for our "Show and Tell" session. Please indicate whether you are submitting the photos as "Completed Work" for a critique, or as an "Assistance Needed" submission that you would like some type of help, or assistance with.
