    I've been asked to appear on a radio programme and talk about my craft!

    I feel like a real fraud, you guys all seem to do it 'for a living' and its my (fairly obsessive) hobby and I've only been doing it since December.

    They picked my card up at a craft fayre I did (thank you to Julia Gandy!) at the transport museum.

    give me some tips? what do I say, how do i make this slightly daunting experience into a good thing!

    thanks

    ohhh wow, fantasic ....i'd be a nervous wreck

    the only advice i can offer is too write down how you got into the craft and why, what is involved in making an item from design to finishing, how you sell and where and what you get out of your hobby

    then break the whole lot down into bullet points that you think are interesting and then run through it all with a friend/partner/willing victim

    sorry i'm not more help, we need sparky here , he would be able to give you better advice.....good luck

      Congratulation

      I find the best way to talk in public is to have in mind your begining, middle and end and fill in the bits inbetween off the top of your head, i find it sound a bit more natural and off the cuff.

      Hope it goes well and good luck

            I shouldn't worry about being a "fraud". Enjoy it, I'll listen in if I remember and I'm not being deafened by my babys lungs.

              How exciting, at least with radio you won't have to worry about many eyes staring at you whilst you speak!!!!!

              I'm sure you will do fine, just remember to speak slowly, I know that I am one of those people that once I get in the flow I tend to speed up and people have trouble keeping up!!!!!!

                How did it go? I remember Wincey Willis, weather girl, blonde? Did she do the map thing on Richard and Judy before the man with the glasses?

                    Oohh thanks for the vote of confidence.. though I have done my fair share of broadcast (for work) - and probably had more than my "15 minutes of fame" in that respect.. (don't all go rushing for autographs now! )

                    Actually, I think you got it just about right yourself becky.. make a list of what you want to get across, and break it down to bullet points..

                    The problem for most folk with TV and radio is that the environment is "unusual" for most of us, and that can make even the most confident person distracted or nervous.. I was advised to speak naturally, try not to speak too fast, and imagine I was talking to a close friend or relative.. Thankfully the radio programs I did had good presenters who had some information about the subject beforehand, so they were able to ask leading questions and get the responses they needed (and the info I wanted to get across). Ms Willis is a seasoned broadcaster, and I am sure she would be very good at that too.

                    The main difficulty of radio over TV is that you cant just stop to "think"! it is fine if someone asks a question on TV, the audience can see you and knows you might be pondering the answer.. but on Radio, the moment there is silence, everybody thinks there is a technical problem.. so you have to try and think and speak at the same time... can be a challenge!

                      update

                      It went OK I think

                      go to bbc website - search under coventry and warwicksire and you'll be able to listen gain for the next 6 days...........if you want to (!)

                      see what you think!
                      thanks

                        I will try to remember to listen - You should'nt have a prob. talking, you have some lovely stuff in your shop. Just be yourself and let your natural enthusiasm come through.
