Do you want to share your passion for knitting or crochet without leaving the comfort of your home?
Many fiber arts teachers are adapting to teaching virtually. This switch to virtual teaching can be surprisingly successful, but having the right equipment and a good lesson plan are crucial.
I’ve been teaching virtually since before Covid shut down travel, and I plan to continue it. Virtual teaching has so many benefits, for both student and teacher! Students can see, close up, each stitch, and can ask questions in real time. Virtual classes are accessible to more students, and less expensive to put on for event organizers.
Do you teach weaving, spinning or another fiber art? We can talk about that, too!
