Saturday, March 5

10:00am-12:00pm Pacific Time (San Francisco, USA)

In this 2-hour Zoom workshop, Osa shares her approaches on how to calculate wholesale & retail pricing; the pros and cons of working with retailers including galleries; social media marketing; Instagram; shop drops; online platform comparisons; choosing in-person events wisely and more! She will talk about her career in ceramics and how she got to where she is today!

After Osa presents, there will be plenty of time to answer all of your questions and you are even able to submit them ahead of time in the class dashboard once you register. Since this is a vast topic, we likely will not be able to cover off-topic questions. Our host, artist Kala Stein will also be engaging with Osa in conversation around her practice to help give another perspective, similar to a panel discussion.

You will be able to watch this video for six months through this platform and on any of your devices.

If you have additional questions about this class or registration, please email us at kala@kalastein.com

Instructor

Artist, Educator Osa Atoe

Osa Atoe owns and operates Pottery by Osa, producing small-batch handmade functional ceramics. PBO grew out of Atoe’s kitchen in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2015 and has since expanded to a full sized studio space at her current home in Sarasota, Florida where she offers monthly collections to her online audience. Atoe is a ceramicist and social activist using her craft to foster community and justice. From her past as a punk musician and zine writer to her current incarnation as an entrepreneur and potter, Atoe’s creative work has always been anchored by the politics of equity and identity. Her pottery is an examination of humankind using ceramics as a window into the past. Learning from ancient pottery or pottery from different cultures, we get a glimpse into the values and practices of people from other places and times. Atoe uses these insights to build a future of modern ceramic ware that is timeless. She also uses her pottery to raise funds and awareness for Black and people of color led social justice organizations in her own city, all over the country and extending all of the way to Nigeria, where her parents immigrated from in the 1970s.
