Getting Laid + Getting Paid. A class for creative people who get weird about money. | Individual $65 | Friends $117

Paco de Leon_03 Photo by Jenn Pablo._preview.jpeg

“My hourly rate is $100, but what did you have in mind?”
“We’re totally flexible on price.”
“Sure, you need a website and a logo, too? We can do that.” - Interior Designer

No. Just please stop.

Creative people often get super weird about money. It makes us sad. We’re creative people who don’t get weird about money and enjoy helping other creative people get un-weird about money. As long-time hustlers and successful small business owners, we’re also both fascinated by the overwhelming similarities between how to make money and how to navigate intimacy and relationships. 

Money is boring, but sex is sexy, so we decided to talk about money by talking about sex.

This workshop will take you through the process of understanding the value of your work, figuring out how to communicate about it and get paid well for it. From new business to how to navigate clients that ask for too much, the struggle and the solutions are no different than how to navigate Tinder, love and marriage. 

The valuable stuff you’ll actually learn
1. How to stop dreading the money conversation with clients
2. How to stop doing shitty work that you don’t like doing
3. How to sell without feeling sleazy or needy/how to sell confidently
4. And you’ll get to ask us specific questions about your money weirdness, too

Nina Beckhardt
Founder of global branding agency The Naming Group (link: http://www.thenaminggroup.com)and cofounder of the creative incubator Art of Freelance (link: https://www.artoffreelance.com/), Nina is a recognized authority on brand naming and longtime mentor of creative professionals. In addition to leading work with Proctor & Gamble, GM, PUMA, Capital One and other corporate behemoths she has been published The Economist, Forbes, CNN, and has presented on brand innovation in corporate boardrooms and entrepreneurship classrooms. When she is not helping huge companies craft language to make money, she is working intimately with creative people helping them find their voice and confidence in their true calling. 

Nina lives in a little bungalow in Los Angeles with her boyfriend, Andrew. The bungalow is too small for both of them but it’s really pretty there and they like each other so it works out. When she’s not working, Nina likes to go camping, tend to her drought-tolerant garden and narrate the voices of dogs at the dog park.

Organic Indigo with The Dogwood Dyer | $100 Individual / $160 Friends and Couples

Join Liz Spencer of The Dogwood Dyer in exploring the king of natural dye plants: Indigo. Unlike most modern indigo dye vats that are prepared quickly with a chemical reducing agent, this workshop will use only sugar and natural ingredients to activate the indigo dyeing power of the vat. Learn the science behind the nature of indigo while experiencing the alchemistic wonder of its transformation from indigo white to blue! This dye is perfectly suited for experimenting with shibori- traditional tie, bind, and stitch techniques. Liz will demonstrate her favorites including itajime and arashi and encourage students to try their hand at surface and pattern design.
Each participant will leave with natural fabrics of different types in blue, a list of resources, and an instructional guide on how to repeat the process at home. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own medium to small sized natural fiber (cotton, wool, silk, linen, etc.) garment or item to dye in the reduced vat.
