The SAC Mentor Program
The Society of Arts and Crafts Mentor Program prepares emerging artists for participation in premiere craft shows via CraftBoston Holiday. CraftBoston Holiday is a competitive retail show comprised of over 175 exhibitors selling fine craft within twelve media categories at the Hynes Convention Center. Central to the Mentor Program is a multi-year association with CraftBoston Holiday.
SAC is proud to announce the 2015 Mentees: Andrew Haviland (jewelry), Heather Dawson (wood), and Jenifer Stark (wearable fiber). Participants attend a series of training meetings at SAC and work with each other, artist mentors, and show management to design a shared, subsided booth at CraftBoston Holiday. Training topics include: booth design, marketing, pricing and selling of work, legal and insurance issues, and portfolio development.
After completion of their first year, Mentor Program participants are eligible to apply for a subsidized independent 10x10 booth at CraftBoston Holiday the following year as a second-year participant. Laura Jaklitsch (jewelry) and Aron Leaman (glass) will be joining SAC as a second-year Mentees in 2015.
