I’ve been asked to teach classes. I teach on occasion now—at different libraries in Suffolk County. That works pretty well but that means I need to wait until the library wants to run a jewelry class and it often fills SO fast that my friends can’t get into the class. So what to do?
I’m thinking of starting in-home jewelry-making classes. I haven’t worked out the kinks yet (like, how could I actually make MONEY doing it) but I’m toying with ideas.
I am going to try it out, take it slow, see how it progresses and tweak my method as I go along.
I did a little brainstorming today with a friend. I’m thinking we do one 3-hour class in someone’s home. The host is free as a thank you. Each participant pays a set fee for the class and all materials are provided. People will prepay and get to pick out their crystal colors in advance. I can’t have more than 10 and no less than 8 people (or it wouldn’t be worth it financially for either party. If I have less people I need to charge more per person).
What are your thoughts? Want to have a class in your home? Have you ever done this?
