Quick Poll

I enjoy teaching. I have been teaching for several years, and I have taught classes for children and adults and every experience has been very fulfilling. Teaching has also become an important part of my business.

So, here is the question:

Do you teach what you create?
If not, have you thought about teaching?

Share your teaching experiences, or if you have thought about teaching what's stopping you.

  1. I have been giving sewing lessons to a friend of mine who is on maternity leave! :)

    Your stuff is so cool and unique!!

  2. hm, no I don't, but that is an interesting idea!

  3. Your blog looks great! I love your widgets.

  4. I love teaching actually!

    I currently work as a research assistant (not much teaching now) but I used to tutor organic chemistry and TA chemistry labs when I was in school! I love to make science accessible and understandable to everyone and I can't wait to start grad school so I have the opportunity to teach again :)

    I don't teach anything that has to do with my craft at the moment but I still like to thing I am bringing science to everyone in a fun way through my Etsy shop!

  5. I would love to teach art. To adults lol not kids.

    I've been thinking about doing an online workshop/class but am looking to see what people are interested in from me before I go for it. I do so many different art things so I would love to know what people want to know first :) (there's a post on my blog looking for opinions)

    Good luck with your teaching! :)

  6. Thanks everyone for sharing!

    Kendra, you bring up another point, I have not thought about teaching an online class, but what a good idea.

    Has anyone taught or taken an online class?

  7. I haven't taught anything, but I've coached some sports. It was really fun and rewarding and would love to do it again!

  8. I haven't tried teaching... i think partly because i find public speaking really hard. maybe if the students were very little, i would be less scared. ;)

  9. I do not teach what I create because of the fear of public speaking too. I work with preschoolers so I find it hard to teach adults....and preschoolers with stamping, ink, paper cutters etc....would be quite challenging.....LOL!!

  10. I've thought about it... But I'm still so new to all this, and I wouldn't know even where to go or how to start. Maybe someday.

  11. I've been a career voice teacher and music director for 30 years, so I teach and coach for a living, working with professionals as well as comitted amateur singers. Began teaching when I was 13, so I think teaching chose me! And of course, being a good parent also means teaching. While I've thought of teaching recycled jewelry design, I decided I need it just for me. Helping others find their creative voice is different from expressing your own sometimes!
