Mentorship &Technical Certificate Program
SFSNAD is excited to announce the launch of the Mentorship and Technical Certificate Program. This intensive, 24 month program is designed specifically for stitchers wanting to pursue a professional career in hand embroidery and needlework. Courses are offered online with optional in-person classes and learning opportunities. Work on projects asynchronously and meet with advisors for one-on-one feedback and guidance. It is the perfect program for novice or experienced stitchers who would like to pivot to a professional status.
Besides technical training in a variety of techniques, this program will be guided by a team of experts who specialize in branding, social media, exhibition design and business practices. The program is custom tailored to meet each individual’s needs, helping to establish you as a future professional artist, artist-educator, designer, or entrepreneur.
Information and the application link can be found here.
The application deadline is September 15, 2022. The cohort will begin in January of 2023. We intend this program to be highly individualized and thus will require dedicated time from SFSNAD educators. For this reason, each cohort will be limited in size.
A short video presentation with more details about this program can be accessed through this registration link. The video can be watched at any time and is free. A live "how to apply" session will take place on Saturday, August 27th at 2pm PT. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space and get your link.
This program has been made possible with support from Erica Wilson Inc.
