I was completely delighted (and slightly start-struck) to be interviewed recently by Mollie Makes magazine on the subject of teaching creative classes. I’m passionate about the benefits of sharing creative skills so it was fabulous to be asked for my thoughts by one of my all time favourite magazines. It’s true that nowadays we all want to spend on experiences to savour rather than just buying more ‘stuff’. We’d much rather tell friends where we’ve been and what we made rather than what we bought. Social media has been a huge driver behind this and the ‘experience economy’ is now the fastest growing retail sector. If you’re a maker and finding it tough selling on Etsy or in galleries, it’s worth considering how hosting a pop-up class might introduce you to an exciting new audience. If you’re already interested in teaching why not spend a day with me learning how to plan, price and promote your classes. Email me for more information. Read more about how I prepare for my classes and why teaching can be a great boost to any creative business, Mollie Makes summer issue out now of grab a copy of my book ‘Teach What You Do’.
