What is Etsy?

Etsy is a website which is similar to ebay or amazon except it’s exclusively for handmade or vintage items. With almost 30 million active buyers over the globe it’s a vibrant, caring and creative community which makes it easy and affordable for local makers to share their creations with the world. Have a browse here.

Who is this suitable for?

This is a workshop designed for absolutely beginners to the Etsy platform. As the main aim will be to open up a shop from scratch you should not already be signed up as a seller on Etsy. For more info on what you can and can’t sell on Etsy check out this link If you already have an Etsy shop and are looking for workshops on how to improve please fill in this form and send it to Etsy to let them know.

Who is the course taught by/What does it entail.

The course is taught my Ruth Abbott from OMGosh Shop. Ruth has been helping local Etsy sellers for the last three years running the Etsy Manchester team which has over 2000 local sellers. During this time she’s represented Manchester Makers in several events across the UK as well as in Amsterdam and Paris. The course has been structured by her to draw on this wealth of knowledge about how Etsy works and operates.

The course itself has three parts.

1) Online: Once booked on you will receive information about how to choose a great shop name and make sure it’ll be a good fit with the items you wish to sell.

2) In Person: A day long workshop will be ran from 10am – 4pm on Saturday the 28th of October. This will cover all the bases in a friendly, informal and hands on session.

3) Follow Up: After you’ve completed the course you have the option of a free mini shop review (worth £25) that you can redeem at any point over the next 3 months.

What do you need to do to bring

A Laptop: You must bring your own laptop to this event. You will need basic computer literacy skills (if you can use Word, Goggle or Facebook that’s about the level needed)

A mobile phone/digital camera: We’re going to be taking photos of your item so please bring either a smartphone or camera.

A product to list: The workshop is for people who already have made a product they’d like to sell (or at least a sample one). This should be brought along so that we can photograph it. If you’re planning on selling digital items please bring a printed version.

The completed worksheet emailed to you before the event: Due to time constraints you will need to think of your shop name before hand so please bring your ideas with you!
