I am a big fan of the Millner Craft Series of books published by Sally Milner in Australia. The subtitle to this books is:
A Complete Handbook.
I know that taking Needlepoint and Needleart classes has become very popular. Many of the authors of fine needlework books and some of today's great designer give wonderful classes.
This book is about how to teach crafts, it does not specify what kinds of crafts. (I dislike calling needlepoint a craft, to me it is Needleart but that is my own prejudice).
I think a list of the chapters might best show you this book. Each chapter has a number of sub-chapters.
Teaching Style, Teaching Enviornment, Ethics and Professionalism, Establishing Realistic Aims & Objectives, Creating A Positive Classroom Atmosphere, Preparation Of Teaching Aids, Teaching Strategies and Techniques, Motivating Students, Coping With Difficult and Special Needs Students, Evaluating The Lesson, Running Classes At Home, Teaching Through Shops & Studios, Business Practicalities
I have had no experience teaching anyone anything (except maybe my son how to tie his shoes etc.) so I can evualuate this book but if it is anywhere near the quality and expertise of the other Milner Series books, it is a good one.
Published by Sally Milner Publishing in 1993. This is a glossy cover paperbound book with 74 pages.
The Art of Teaching Craft is in very good condition. The cover edges show very little wear and the pages inside are perfecrt. The spine is tight.
I recently bought this collection of fine vintage and out-of-print needlework books from Carol Korman. There are many excellent books on this among the books she sent me. Some of these books are very rare and unique.
Carol was raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Her Husband travelled the world as a Civil Engineer, they lived in 6 countries over 22 years. She studied Needlepoint and Embroidery all over the world.
On retirement she took classes at the EGA (Embroidery Guild of America) and ANG (American Needlepoint Guild). She became certified as a Needlework Judge for both EGA and ANG.
Carol went on the become a Master EGA Needlework Judge.
In 2000 Carol Korman became ANG Western Area Representative, she was president on ANG from 2006 to 2008.
Carol and her husband live in Texas, at 80 she still stitches. Carol and I both hope that her books add to your pleasure as you pursue Needlepoint
