I know you all have seen me posts a couple of times about Craftsy and the classes they offer, however I never really told you about Craftsy. I want to shed a little more light on Craftsy and what they offer, because its on of the coolest concepts for on-line learning.
What is Craftsy?
Craftsy is a worldwide craft community offering online classes. It also has a patterns marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supplies shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, and class kits; and a projects section where members share pictures of their latest craft successes. With over two million members and counting, Craftsy has something for just about everyone, in categories ranging from quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, and more.Why should you take a class online?
Online education isn’t just for schools and universities anymore. Craftsy courses provide you the convenience of a world-class instructor in your home, whenever you want to learn. Online education, no matter what subject, is a great alternative to in-person classes for a number of reasons.
With many online learning opportunities being on-demand, you are able to learn at your own pace, anytime.
Online learning is a fantastic alternative to in-store craft classes for people with busy schedules or who have difficulty leaving the house. It also allows you to watch a troubling section over-and-over again, so you can see exactly how a technique is carried out, or refer back to your class for relevant concepts before beginning any new projects.
Craftsy also offers free online classes to include the following:
If anything, taking advantage of the free classes is right up my alley. I’ll definitely be taking advantage of them, especially the decorating classes, because I love to bake. I’ll be able to pick some awesome tips, as I aspire to become a pastry chef one day (much later on in life…). I would also love to learn how to sew and quilt, so I can make my little one some cute threads and maybe a blanket. If only I could learn how to embroider, but I don’t wanna get to ahead of myself here. Gotta learn the basics first!
