great class

I loved this class. I got a degree in art education but never taught because we started having kids. Now I am looking at starting to work out of the home in the next couple of years. would love to be able to teach the fiber arts and found this class gave great ideas for getting involved in teaching again and how to apply what I learned in college to teaching the fiber arts. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to teach.

As a LYS owner I enrolled in this class thinking well maybe I'll get a few ideas. But WOW Gwen really blew me away, she is filled with ideas & great handouts. Plus she gave me the confidence & "game plan" to make my classes outstanding in my shop.

Excellent Class!

Gwen's an excellent teacher and I got a lot out of this class, being a beginning knitting teacher myself. Even though Gwen is a knitter, her focus is not on teaching knitting, but on teaching any art/craft. Her approach is very thorough and well thought out. I would highly recommend this class to any teacher, experienced and novice alike!

Just Want I Needed

This class is just what I needed in my teaching arsenal. I am first time adjunct instructor at local community college and so far I have gain a little better insight to what my role as teacher will encompass. Very helpful!!

What A Wonderful Teacher!

Although I have taught Craft classes before, I can't stress enough how worthwhile this class has been for me. It isn't that I had done things wrong in the past but Gwen breaks down every single step, leaving nothing to chance. Whether you have taught before or are just beginning, you will not be sorry for taking this class.

My mind is now much more focused on what I need to change, what I can do better and how to sell my classes with confidence.

Loved it, thank you ...
