Teaching through windows: How to conduct an online craft workshop


10 January 2022

A special workshop on 7 February will focus on how to conduct a craft workshop online

The pandemic has opened up new possibilities for craft as we seek ways of connecting and learning despite doors being physically closed. As things begin to open up, it is likely that some of these pathways will stay open and help provide an international audience for the skills and stories we can share.
Garland will help promote this pathway by offering a listing of online craft courses as part of its Orbit platform. These will be shared on the website and the fortnightly email newsletter.

But at this stage, it is important that we share our learnings from the first year of online craft courses. This is time to discuss a number of questions, including:

  • What’s an ideal number of participants?
  • How long should a session last?
  • How can materials be shared for use?
  • What are the issues that emerge from teaching remotely?
  • What online platform is best?
  • Workshop on online craft teaching

Join a discussion with a number of makers who have extensive experience in conducting online craft workshops.

Monday 7 February 5-6pm (AEDT)
On Zoom, registration through Eventbrite

    I would like to attend this workshop, but it is 1:00 AM my time and I do not think I will be in good form then! Will it be taped and available afterwards. I am happy to register and pay the fee if it will be available.

    I too, don’t think I can attend the zoom meeting at midnight here in the US, hopefully there will be a replay otherwise I will have to decline the invite.

    Sorry we can’t reach all time zones. If you register, you will receive a private link of the recording, in case that would be useful.
