Make money doing what you love!

My Experience:

I started giving workshops in the North of England in 2013. Initially a friend organised them, he paid me a fee for a 10AM to 4PM workshop  (£250) for maximum 20 people.

Workshop participants were enthusiastic, they went home and told their friends and family about it. I shared photos on social media and soon I was asked to do more and more workshops. Within six months, I had done workshops in the US, Morocco and elsewhere in the UK.

If you can be enthusiastic and make complex things simple, if you can make people see things in a new way and stimulate them to keep learning about Islamic geometric design, you’ll build a reputation that will allow to do more workshops and make more money.

Nowadays I get more requests than I can say yes to, especially from outside the UK. And this is where the Teacher@SIGD scheme comes in. Now, you can be a SIGD teacher in Kuala Lumpur, Lahore, Jeddah, Pittsburgh or Paris. Especially if you’re quick to sign up and complete the course, you will have a big market to explore!

Be Your Own Boss!

You’re in charge of how much time and effort you devote to giving Islamic geometric design workshops. You will probably have other family and work commitments but you can start small, offering workshops when you have time.  You can let word-of-mouth grow your business or you can be more pro-active and approach schools, cultural centres, etc. It’s up to you!

You  can arrange your own venue and sell your own tickets or you can do workshops for a fee. 

Selling your own tickets is potentially more lucrative but also has more risk. You have to arrange venue, travel, marketing etc.  But, if you sell a good number of tickets, it’s very rewarding.

Doing workshops for a fee is also attractive because it is worry-free. All you have to do is show up and do a good job. The organiser does everything else.
