How I did get Invited to give an Online Class

In this fast changing world new possibilities sometimes come to you unexpected. You know something and want to share it, but it's a niche market, how do you reach the people? So one of the things I do to connect is attending conferences. There you find like wise people that are, like you, focused on a subject. In my case it's jewelry and more specific metalclay and what you can do with it. On the last Precious Metal Clay (PMC) conference in 2010 Purdue(IL) I met Alison Lee. She was one of the presenters, her talk was about her brainchild Craftcast.

A tube shaped silver whistle made in Donna Penoyer's craftcast class by Helga van Leipsig
As I am a person that embraces new technologies, I once took a Craftcast class just to know how it worked. It was Donna Penoyer's Whistle class. It was a great experience. Exactly at 02:00u (it are american times so it was night for me!)I logged in with my code and for 1,5 hour I was hooked to the screen with the vivid talking Alison and the explaining Donna. Up front you get a pdf file with necessary materials to "bring" to class and background information. I was able to make with only the instructions in that class two whistle that I treasure deeply.

So when Alison asked me if I would like to share my knowledge on Craftcast I said immediately YES. Although I didn't know how to do that yet, but I had trust in my own knowledge and Alison's experience in broadcasting.

So next week I will give my first ever online class. I hope you will join me there with my favorite subject: Ceramic Decals on Silverclay.
