I am thinking of holding craft classes for 8-11 yr olds, or maybe younger, for things like sewing, crochet, knitting, basically stuff they might not learn at school. I was thinking I could do little projects with them each week, making scarves or wristwarmers, bags, etc. I have a sewing machine I could take but would need to charge for materials etc and then hire somewhere. I haven't really thought any further than that, not even sure where to start, I mean, woudl I need insurance, could I just give business cards to mums at DD's school?
no experience on this but i know several mums at work of tweens who would just love for them to be able to go to something like this.
when i was young we had these sorts of classess after school with some lovely old ladies who taught a whole load of things. i loved it and learnt a great deal. a pity their is not more of this sort of thing.
for an hour i think that would be enough but if it was for longer you could charge more. It depends on where you are really and how many you would have at a time and the quality of the materials supplied.
