Most of us are familiar with Etsy’s great platform for buying and selling your crafts. But what about teaching or learning how to make those pieces? Betterfly.com is a free website that makes it easy to promote classes or find a teacher near you. You can find tutors, coaches, stylists, or other “Betterists” who can help you be better at anything, including various crafts. Craft teachers can create their own mini-website to show off their projects, offer crafting advice, and even make some money teaching what they love.
Crafts are among the most active categories on Betterfly, with entire pages devoted to helping new and experienced crafters share their skills. Although Betterfly just launched its site in 2010, it has one of the largest listings of craft teachers in the U.S. People go to Betterfly to find scrapbooking classes, beading and jewelrymaking, and even things like glass blowing and candlemaking. To see all of the crafts teachers who are already listed, or to offer your own lessons, visit the Crafts Page on Betterfly.
