Classes & Workshop Research

Hi All,

As some of you will know from here that I am looking to start running jewellery making workshops I was just wondering if I could get some input from you guys.

These are the points that I am trying to get some information about but please feel free to include anything that you have experienced or would like to see in a workshop.

1.Location - At the moment I am finding it incredibly difficult to secure somewhere permanent to run workshops from, I will keep on looking. Would you be happy attending workshops in various different locations such as community centres, private rooms in pubs and restaurants, out of town locations?

2.Times and Days - I was thinking of weekday evenings 6:30-8:30pm, and Saturday and Sunday days 2:00-4:00pm. Do you think that 2 hour classes are enough and would you attend at these times?

3.Maximum Numbers - I was thinking 8 people maximum?

4.Price - For a two hour workshop, although some will vary depending on what the project is I was looking at £25 which will include tea and coffee.

5.Tools & Equipment - Would you like the opportunity to buy tools and kits so you can get practising at home?

I would like to run a range of workshops in jewellery making for beginners mainly and would like to start children's jewellery parties and hen parties too.

Have you ever been on a jewellery (or any craft) workshop/course? What were your experiences, what would you like to see again and what were you not so keen on?

I look forward to hearing from you.
