Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My goal is for community members to be introduced to traditional ways of working, and to learn about how different skills and crafts interrelate and come together. I want to invite workshop participants to an open and collaborative environment where they are guaranteed to be introduced to something new, build relationships with other community members, and leave with the inspiration and confidence to make something with their hands. Several assessment strategies will be employed to evaluate the success of this project. Observational, oral, and written evaluations will determine if participants are enjoying themselves, learning new skills, and becoming more confident in their educational activity. If these questions are largely answered with “yes” then I will consider the workshops successful. Using this information I will be able to determine if the workshops have indeed achieved my desired goals of introducing learners to new skills and inspiring them to continue making creative work with confidence.
