So I taught my first class at Michaels. Yes Michaels the Arts and crafts store. I didn’t know this, but they have a classroom in most of their stores. They offer all kinds of classes from hobbies to cake decoratings to picture framing.
I am a Michaels member and get emails all the time from them. I happened to open an email about looking for arts and crafts teachers. You would be an independent contractor and they go through a process and then decide if they want to bring you onboard. You are not an employee of Michaels. (No discounts on their items, dang it) But you come in with your brand and branding and supplies and set up and do your class.
I did my first on at the Michaels in Hawthorne, CA , south of LA proper. The room is off in a wierd corner by a hallway but once you go in , it s a nice size. You can have up to 12 people. They have tables and chairs and a sink and desk and i could do a powerpoint presentation too. They have a cabinet with some supplies you could you use too. It was nice . The air conditioning was on lol. I liked it.
I just submitted for my next dates. I will post here when the next one is. I wouldn’t mind going back to that location but I can’t wait to go to another location and see if all the classrooms are similar. If you are in the LA area, sign up and join it! We have fun and you learn tips and go home with products!!
