Skillshare: Teaching in Your Community

If you’re looking to add a new income stream to your craft business, teaching classes in your local community might be a good option.
Skillshare is an online community marketplace for offline classes. You can scope out a teaching location in your community, and then submit your class idea through their website. If it’s approved, Skillshare will list your class on their website and help spread the word. They’ll also manage registrations and payments online, retaining a small service fee. (Or, if you teach a free class, there are no fees at all.)
If you’re new to teaching classes, you might also find their Resource Guide helpful – it covers designing a class, making a lesson plan, and marketing.
