demos are weird. i had everything from people who just wanted a free lunch to people who wanted to learn to spin. and everything in between! Strange. I walk this fine and meandering line trying on one hand to give enough detail for those interested and not too much detail so i lose the people who are only tangentially interested. Throw in ccasional silliness. Being silly about your own hobby is great. The smell of hot vinegar and wet wool is always good for a laugh (or something). the fact that my hobby will soon take over my daughter's bedroom...giggles. But then a discussion of how to ply yarn. totally different.
demos are nothing like teaching a class where everyone is there to actually learn. NOTHING. Classes are straight forward. Teach the steps. Do them. Over and Over. Demos have to be amusing. Entertaining. Perhaps i should have sung. But, it went well...i think. It was a wildly wandering and meandering line...but i did walk it. What fun!
