I do tech stuff. Computers, networks, websites, that kind of thing.
I also play den leader / assistant cubmaster for my kid's troop. We were discussing potential activities.
I have an acquaintance that does pottery, and occasionally gives pottery lessons. As it happens, she's also taken a couple of my computer classes and was recently talking to me about how she'd like to do some upgrades (video card, RAM, and getting rid of 8 and going back to 7) and was thinking of getting a website. She started to ask me about my rates but we got interrupted.
I'd like to make her an offer - she comes in and teaches the boys some basic pottery skills (we would pay for clay and other materials) and fires their creations (assuming they create anything that can be fired). In return, I do the computer upgrades. If the teaching the pottery skills includes showing them some wheel work, I also build her website. There are 6 boys, and there is constant parental supervision at their level.
What's the best way to go about broaching this subject? Does it sound like a fair deal?
