I've made a little money teaching classes on pine needle basket making and gratitude journaling. On Wednesday evening I have invited two friends - both pastor's wives - over to teach them how to use their Instant Pots. I wanted to offer these two ladies a free class in order to see how long it will take, and what kind of questions they have. The plan is to offer a paid class to the community between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We are kind of far from a town of any size, and people get bored. It's 60 miles to the nearest Walmart, and Boise is a 2 hour drive, so I have found that I can plan a class, announce it on Facebook (our town has a couple of community pages), and have at least a small class show up. I charge 25.00 for a couple of hours, bake some brownies, and set up a tea/coffee station. I always print of a couple of handouts, directions, or recipes. My costs are pretty low.
It's been fun, and the extra money is much appreciated. I'm starting a list of things that I know well enough to teach, and I have free access to a building with tables and chairs and a kitchen area. It seems easier to get a class together in the winter when the farmers and ranchers are a little less busy.
What skills do you have that you could teach?
