What is a Skillshare?
An event where people come together to share their skills with each other without asking for anything in return.
Who can host a skillshare?
Anyone can set up a skillshare. All you need is a location. We have some venues which may host events or you can set up an event in your backyard or other locations. You can post the locations publicly or take registrations through our site and just register the number of folks you can handle.
How long should my skillshare be?
The skillshare should be no more than 90 minutes (but it’s up to you). We recommend a presentation and discussion or some hands-on activities.
Can I charge a fee?
We ask that all skillshares be free or only charge for materials. You are welcome to use the share to promote a service you provide commercially or to promote your club, organization, or just to find new friends.
What do we hope to accomplish?
There are two main goals in a skillshare. 1) Share knowledge. 2) Learn something new. It's always fun to learn something new -- even better when it's done with friends and neighbors.
Are hands-on activities ok?
We strongly encourage hands-on skillshare activities when possible. If you're presenting a gardening skillshare, hold it in a garden; if you want to teach drawing, break out the pencils and pads.
When is the next Skillshare event?
The next Skillshare is scheduled for December 1 & 2, and will be offered on a first-come, first served basis for instructors. We will be posting the sign-up form soon!
