BECOME A TEACHER
Turn your passion into a business
I'm Kerry Kimber and having run my own successful small business teaching knitting classes since 2010, and as the creator of the award winning Kids Knit program for children, I specialise in training and supporting knitters to run their own successful businesses teaching knitting and crafting classes in their local areas, wherever in the world they may live.
My 8 week, live online step-by-step course guides you through the essential skills you need to start, launch, grow and sustain your business teaching knitting.
Enrolment is closed for the current course. Please sign up for our newsletter and I'll let you know when enrolment opens for the next course, starting in October.
Sharing the joy and pleasure of knitting and crafting skills, enabling others to release their creativity, is rewarding work. But anyone who has tried running a business teaching regular knitting classes will know there’s more involved than just yarn and needles. In fact, your own knitting expertise is just one skill among many required to deliver consistently successful, engaging and professional classes that keep customers coming back for more.
Coaching and business know-how form the backbone of my eight-week training course, and I provide hundreds of patterns, projects and activities using both UK and US knitting terminology, to enable teaching in a variety of settings. As teaching classes in person may not be possible for some months, we will also cover online teaching skills so that you can initially start to build your business virtually.
Every week I will host a live online class, featuring a presentation and discussion lasting approximately 2 hours. Recordings of every session will also be available so participants can catch up on anything they missed.
Weekly tasks and craft assignments will be set, with participants invited to join a homework discussion group.
The course and support materials are in English and most nationalities will find this course relevant and helpful.
Live teaching enables interaction between students and allows real-time answers to your questions. Classes encourage discussion, peer support and a sense of community.
