Hobbies are practiced for interest and enjoyment,  and those who  use to practice this  kind of recreational  activities   do not wait for a  financial reward.

Financing is still necessary especially when a hobby  is the   subject of an educational workshop during which the activities are carried out in a team .
Here are the best  solutions to find the financial support for your activities :
-Look for sponsors and/or partners in your local community  !

-The participants can be asked to bring their own tools and materials  . Promise them that the products realized during the workshop  will not be confiscated by the organizers! Everyone will be able to enjoy the results from his own  activity.

-Find volunteers that can animate the workshop and be a volunteer animator yourself !
-Make an exhibition with the best products !

-Organize a party at the end of the activity and provide the best products as prizes in a raffle !Sell tickets to the raffle during the party !
-Be happy,make education a joyful activity so  everybody will learn with pleasure in you workshops and will be happy to share the new achievements .
-I wish you to be enthusiastic , to discover yours and your learners' passions and  much success !
