Sending out letters today to local facilities for disabled adults and senior centers. Would also like to include nursing homes and senior residential facilities. We are offering workshops either at our facility or at theirs for groups of up to ten painters. Please help spread the word by sharing this information with folks that you know.
I have been considering various ways to expand our business: sell finished pieces, either online or at craft shows OR sell bisque online or at craft shows. Neither of these ideas has any appeal. We tried craft shows in the past and it is just too much work for us, especially with the long days involved. (However, our granddaughter might do some shows for us.) And I always answer online requests if someone is looking for a mold that I have. However, pouring and cleaning is a necessary chore, not something I actually enjoy doing.
So I ask myself, What DO I enjoy doing?
The answer, I AM A TEACHER.
First and foremost. It doesn’t matter whether it is math, or study skills, or ceramics. What I really like to do is share what I know with others. So today’s letters and today’s post are an attempt to expand our student base and reach out to groups that might like to do ceramics. If the groups are not able to come here, we are willing to go to them. Please tell your friends and any groups you might belong to. And tell me if there is a place I should contact, either by letter or phone.
P.S. We also do scout troops, 4-H, homeschoolers, church groups, baby showers, bridal showers, and so on.
Where having Fun is why we come!
So please help us out if you can. Refer a group that you know about.
Or set up a workshop for a group that you or your kids belong to.
