The Space

Workshop: Learn To Create Printables and Sell Them On Etsy—Airdrie, Calgary image

This workshop will take place at SquaredHeart Studio, in my home in Airdrie. When I created this studio, I dreamed that I would someday be able to inspire and teach in this space.

In case of allergies, my home is also home to 3 small dogs, but you will not encounter them when you arrive and they will not be in the studio during the workshop.

I will email you the address prior to the workshop.

The Teacher

Workshop: Learn To Create Printables and Sell Them On Etsy—Airdrie, Calgary image

Hello! My name is Carrie, I studied Graphic Design, as well as, Digital and Interactive Media Design in college and have 20+ years of experience. My business, SquaredHeart, started on digital files. To this day, I make sales from digital files that I created and uploaded several years ago. I believe a passive income of this nature is possible for everyone and I have a ton of knowledge that I would love to teach others who want to build a creative business.

I was inspired to teach workshops when I taught my Sister to create cut files using Illustrator for the Custom Dog Bandanas she offers in her Etsy shop, The Heart Sews. They are currently her best seller.
