Copy of Artful Gatherings: A guide to workshops


Do you want to teach your own creative workshops, but you're overwhelmed about how to get started?

I can help.

Being an educator has been an important part of my life for 16 years. As a conservation educator in a zoo setting, I shared my passion for animals and the environment. Now as I pursue my art full-time, I teach folks how to tap their own creativity.

Inspiring others and watching them discover that creative spark is what I live for. It’s why I teach.

But there are even more great reasons for teaching workshops: connecting with people who have similar interests, grabbing inspiration for yourself, and making money while sharing something you LOVE.

I know all of that sounds dreamy, but how do you even get started? Let me introduce you to my new course, Artful Gatherings: A how-to guide for teaching creative workshops.

After a few years of fielding questions and being asked for advice about how I teach workshops, I built this course to include all those faq and serve as a step-by-step instructor guide specifically for artists and makers.

This course will help you:

  • Create a lesson plan

  • Prep your supplies

  • Decide how to price your class

  • Find, research, and reach out to venues

  • Set up registrations and promote to your audience


You’ll also get:

  • Teaching tips

  • Advice and anecdotes from other experienced workshop instructors

  • Worksheets to help you plan lessons, compare venues, etc.

  • Checklist for the day of your workshop

  • Guidance on how to follow up to get feedback and testimonials


What Artful Gatherings students say:

“If it wasn’t for Dani’s advice, I would never have gotten the courage to teach workshops out of state (& country) as well as charge my worth as an artist and an instructor! Not only has she done all the work for us in this new course, but she makes the process super adaptable for all types of mediums (so literally anyone can benefit from taking it)! She has helped me completely transform my work and business with this course and I couldn’t be more grateful for it!” —Kristen Gula, Gulush Threads

“Cut the learning curve in half and take a shortcut to success with the information Dani offers. I won't teach another workshop without going through my notes and using the guidance this course offers.” —Lisa Morales, Artist

“I love attending workshops and over the last few years I've had the itch to host workshops of my own, but I always felt daunted by the process. Artful Gatherings was just what I needed! Dani's lessons are clear and straightforward, and they help provide a road map for all the pieces that go into hosting a workshop. Dani is calm and encouraging, leaving me feeling both more motivated and more confident about the next steps I need to take. Now I can't wait to expand my business to include workshops!” —Allison Patrick, Aster + Quail

“I had been thinking about teaching creative workshops for a long time, but I didn’t really know how to get started. The Artful Gatherings course provided everything I needed to help me plan and create my own workshops, including lots of helpful tips, examples and worksheets. Dani has put a lot of thought and expertise into designing this course, and I am so grateful for all of her advice and inspiration. Taking this course gave me confidence to approach a local venue that was looking for an instructor, and I am now planning my first workshop with them!” —Kait Esplen, Kait Felts
