... for feedback + a givaway!
In addition to working on revitalizing my wholesale collection, in the last week or so I've been getting little nudges to get back into teaching. Thing is - it's been a loooooooooong time since I taught anybody anything - a couple of private instruction gigs here and there, but that's it. I used to have fun with the mixed media/Artfest approach, but I'm totally out of touch with that genre. I've done the whole beginning PMC thing and don't really want to go back there + there's lots of peeps out there doing a fine job of teaching metal clay, not to mention they actually keep up with what's going on in that world.
Bottom line, I'm seriously out of touch with this big wide world of teaching and I don't have a clue where to start. I do what I do and live in a very insulated community. What I do know is there's been serious changes to all the teaching models and venues that I knew way back when I stopped teaching in '06.
So here's my question for you. If I were to get back into teaching, what would you like to learn from me? Techniques, methods, project or process oriented, online, teaching retreats, private parties ... this inquiring mind is really curious!
And hey, I should do a drawing to encourage feedback - one of the new pieces for my wholesale collection - a pebble wrap bracelet. It's 21" on hand-plied cocoa nylon, so it can be worn 24/7 as a necklace or bracelet - a $98 piece of swag.
... I'll give this a few days and draw a name on Sunday, the 18th. It would be lovely if anyone feels compelled to shop this idea around to your own circle of peeps.
Can't wait to hear what y'all have to say!
Thanks in advance.
