Empowering Artisans, Elevating Economies
ABOUT ARTISAN DEVELOPMENT
Our service offering for this consultancy shall include the following:
STUSH has an understanding of the challenges we face as Caribbean artisans base on our experience working in the region. Having built an iconic Caribbean fashion brand from the ground, up, Tamia is in a unique position to provide artisans with first hand knowledge of how to navigate the regional and international fashion industry as a Caribbean-based designer. Her hands-on approach to mentorship will provide artisans with the opportunity to get custom solutions that speak directly to their specific needs.
ONE-ON-ONE VIRTUAL CONSULTATIONS
After each group session there will be a one-on-one consultation each week to further break down and walk artisans through the process of what was taught. This will allow for them to feel more comfortable asking questions and ensuring their individual needs are met.
We will deliver workshops that will cover the production from start to finish. Upon completion, our artisans will be equipped with the knowledge to run an MSME.
Workshops will be structured in 1 - 2 hour interactive lectures, with 15 - 30 minutes to ask questions at the end. All workshops will end with assignment tasks to be presented and discussed during the one-on-one consultations that will follow.
We will be training artisans in:
Sewn product construction
Production planning and execution
Quality control, finishing and packaging
Setting up work area
Managing customer expectations
All artisans will be awarded a sewing machine by FFTP upon completion, based on the following criteria:
Artisan must complete at least 7 assignments
We would suggest a wrap up event with a small night market, allowing the artisans to engage and sell. This will allow immediate feedback on the items produced.
