Small Business Center Client Profile: Sandra Harvey, Sandra Harvey Designs What is your business? Sandra Harvey Designs - chef apparel. Why did you start a business? I grew up around food and my sister suggested I use my fashion design background to design a couture coat for chefs. I had never given much thought to it, in fact when looking at a Chef it never was the coat/jacket that stood out, it was the lack of style I usually noticed......KEY POINT….. lack of style! As a designer, I knew the only way I could be taken seriously would be to “walk the walk” by understanding the functions of the kitchen. Thus, I enrolled in culinary school at A-B Tech. Have you started other businesses? Yes, designing women's dresses and separates. How has the A-B Tech Small Business Center (SBC) assisted you? The SBC has been pivotal to my success. Two years ago a friend in Asheville told me about the A-B Tech SBC and I called and made an appointment to talk with the director, Jill Sparks. I have utilizd the SBC for ongoing counseling, met with their Professional Services Office, sought a mentor and have worked with other community resources such as Mountain Bizworks. I have also been working with Steve Poland, director, Technology Commercialization Services and he set out a road map of marketing ideas and advised that the most important thing an entrepreneur can do is to get the idea into an actual product; something tangible and then to research responses. What is the most challenging aspect of owning a business? Trying to wear all the hats. From the original concept to finding the right people to help make your product. What advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs? Start with your dream and visualize it as if it exists. Remember no one works harder than the entrepreneur, you must have the willingness to attend seminars, volunteer in the field of your idea interest, commit to the time and challenge. In a nutshell, I think I have qualified myself to design Chef and Cook apparel...Say Good Bye to The Dull Boring Jacket... Elegance reigns in the Kitchen! www.sandraharvey.com

Small Business Center Client Profile: Cara Freeman, Lovin' Buds What is your business? lovin’ budsTM was born in July 2011 out of our desire to create a hand crafted keepsake piece of 3D Fiber Art that would make hearts happy and serve as a reminder that despite our individual differences, we all share the same heart. The design embodies our belief that love is the most simple, yet most powerful gift that we all possess. Why did you start a business? I moved to Asheville and have had a difficult time finding a job in finance where all my experience lies. This challenge has provided me the opportunity to finally start a business with an incredible business partner. Have you started other businesses? No, this my first. How has the A-B Tech Small Business Center (SBC) assisted you? I have worked with the director, Jill Sparks and the marketing guru, Barry Silverstein. Their experience, expertise and encouragement have truly made all the difference. Specifically, the most valuable assistance they provided was with setting priorities, introducing me to resources both at A-B Tech and in the community, identifying production alternatives so that we could keep our lovin’ buds hand crafted in the U.S.A. and outlining a targeted marketing plan on a limited budget. What is the most challenging aspect of owning a business? Not having enough heads for all the hats you have to wear. My experience is all in corporate America where I worked on teams that involved individuals that handled the budget, the marketing, the legal issues, insurance issues, publicity, etc. What advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs? Research the small business resources available to you and how they can fit into your business model. This is every bit as important as the business plan itself. As a micro-business owner, I do not have the cash flow to hire employees and consultants. The SBC has been an invaluable resource for lovin’ budsTM . They have helped me identify target markets, how to reach them and how to market our product for maximum effect on a minimum budget. Be able to listen and take guidance as well. http://lovinbuds.com/about-us/

Vi si ti n g A rt i s t s' Wo rksh o p s Registration information, page 66. Register early! Solarplate: Printmaking using the Sun Workshop with Kenn Kotara

KENN KOTARA, painter, sculptor, installation artist, printmaker, graphic designer and teacher, has had an artistic curiosity since early childhood. Always working in various media, the unfolding narrative of Kotara’s work continues to evolve in his contemplative and reflective observations. This three-day workshop focuses on the Solarplate* printmaking process using photopolymer plates, which are sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) light. Using the sun, we will develop relief and intaglio Solarplates as the vehicle to transfer an image to paper. Additional techniques will be explored along with reworking prints through drawing and painting to create unique impressions. This workshop is for all levels of artists interested in making prints using the safer and greener methods of etching without the use of acid solvents or grounds. (*Solarplate process by Dan Weldon, the originator of solar plate printmaking in the United States.) June 4, 5,6 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break Cost: $ 275.00 (price includes lunch) 123 Coman Building, Asheville Campus To see Kenn’s work visit: http://kotarastudio.com/

Come Play with Clay Workshop with Josephine Burgwyn Pratt

JOSEPHINE BURGWYN PRATT discovered she was able to translate the beauty of dance movement and the expression of joy into figures made of clay. After years of intensive study in anatomy, composition and sculpting techniques with many of the most renowned sculptors in America, Jo developed her own unique style, which breathes life and joy into her sculpture. This two-day workshop is designed for beginning and intermediate artists who have an interest in learning basic sculpting techniques in polymer clay. You will have fun learning how to make a head either as a character face, fantasy face or the realistic face of a man or woman. We will harden the clay, then paint and complete the sculpture. True creativity is reminiscent of childhood play, so plan to have fun in this workshop! I will guide you through each step of the process. July 17, 18 9 a.m to 3 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break Cost: $ 190 plus a $35 fee for clay/specialty tools (price includes lunch) 124 Coman Building, Asheville Campus To see Jo’s work visit: http://josephinepratt.com/home.html
