I've been asked to teach a class at For Hands in September.

"Something equestrian," since that is my primary focus, "or (Middle Eastern) cultural."  Because those are frequently lacking from local classes, and because I've been researching and playing with both.

Thing is, I don't know zip about either, not really.  I'm still very much a student myself.

And yes, I know teaching is a great way to learn; it's also a great way to disseminate incorrect information.  I don't want to be one of THOSE teachers.  But I do want to teach.

It's a hands-on A&S class event; you teach how to do something.  All I've really hands-on done with equestrian or ME persona stuff has been making garb and a teensy bit of jewelry.  I could do a class on quick-and-dirty Bedouin for your horse, I suppose; all my ME garb experience has been based on the research of others, and that feels too much like plagiarism. :)  But I can't imagine that my q&d Bedouin is of use to anyone but me, and maybe-- *maybe*-- one other person.

But hey, if I offer a class and no one shows, that makes it *really* simple, doesn't it?

Eh, decisions.  I'm halfway toward getting out from under my last model horse hobby obligation, and it's a doozy; and I'm autocratting Crystal Chamfron again this year-- June 4, which is coming up lots faster than it should be.  And we're going to try to breed Aziza again this year; that process starts NEXT MONTH.
