Virtual Knitting LIVE! by Vogue Knitting Request for Class Proposals
Thank you for considering teaching at our virtual event! We are eager to jump into this new way of interacting and building our knitting and crocheting community as we maintain social distance.
We realize that many of you have not taught virtually before, and we know this will be a transition. But don’t worry, we will provide trainings on how to teach a virtual class and will be providing helpful tips along the way. This is a learning process for all of us, and I am confident that our students will be patient during this transitional time.
We have set up a new call for virtual class proposals, and we encourage you to think about what classes in your portfolio can be easily taught virtually—that is, do not require much hands-on teacher-student interaction and can be executed with supplies students may already have. We are interested in various levels of classes—very simple classes are also encouraged, as people might not have the mental bandwidth to take very complex classes.
Like always, we are looking for a variety of classes. We hope you’ll be able to get us proposals quickly, as we feel it’s important that we start publicizing (and selling!) this ASAP.
I’m sure you have lots of questions. To address some logistics: We will be purchasing webcams that we will send directly to you, that will allow you to toggle back and forth between your face and your tabletop. If you need additional lighting, we can send that to you as well.
Registration will happen through our website, so returning students will be familiar with the process. Once registered, they will log into our site with their username and password to access embedded Zoom videos.
The class time slots and time zones fluctuate per show
Payment is listed below. Each class is 2 hours long, and we would like to set each class at 30 students for now (but flexible on this) to see if it is manageable. (If you think you can handle more, please let us know in the form. If you think you need to start with less than 30, please indicate in the form). We will send you an attendance list for each class, and you will also be able to see and interact with your students and take attendance on Zoom. During your class, we will be dropping by to check in and make sure that you do not have any issues. Lectures (in webinar mode) are each 1 hour and will cap at 500 students. Our staff will moderate questions that are typed into the chat function and will convey important questions to the lecturer. At this time we are not going to be offering any classes as exclusive, but we will consider this in the future.
The teaching fees are as follows. We are offering a bit less than our in-person events, but bear keep in mind that you will be teaching 2 hours instead of the usual 3, and we can spread out the classes during the week so you do not have to dedicate entire days to us. We are also completely comfortable with you promoting other things you are working on, so this could be a promotional tool for you.
Up to 100 students: $100
101-150 students: $150
151-200 students: $200
Over 200 students: $200 base plus an additional $1 per student (for example 201 students = $201, 202 students = $202)
15–20 Students in Attendance: $200
21–25 Students in Attendance: $225
26–30 Students in Attendance: $250
31 Students: $275
Over 31 Students: $275 base plus an additional $10 per student (for example 32 students = $285, 33 students = $295)
Maximum of 40 students in all classes
If you have any ideas for the event and want to share them with us, please feel free to reach out. This is an evolving project, and we are very open to ideas! And lastly I just ask that you are all patient with us, as this is a new venture for us, our staff are managing families at home, etc., but we hope to produce something worthwhile for everyone. We look forward to hearing from you, and please do not hesitate to reach out with questions, ideas, or concerns.
We have watched more people pick up needles and yarn on our social media these past few weeks, and we believe in the strength of our community. Together we can pull through this.
Please stay healthy and well.
