Learn New Skills with Over 20 FREE Online Classes Available

If your a regular reader of my blog, you know that I often share deals and such for a company named Craftsy, which offers Online Crafting Classes. Today is no different, well maybe a tad different since what I'm about to share is not a deal or a limited time situation. Craftsy has over 20 mini-classes that are 100% free and you can watch them as many times as you like as well as rewinding and repeating a step that you need practice with!!

What is Craftsy?

Craftsy is a worldwide craft community that offers online classes as well as a patterns marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supplies shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, class kits, etc. They also have a projects section where members can share pictures of their newest crafty successes with each other. With over two million members and counting, Craftsy has something for just about everyone, in categories ranging from: photography, cooking, sewing, knitting, painting, cake decorating and so much more.

Behind the Scenes: The Making of a Craftsy Class

Before any filming begins, hours upon hours are spent figuring out what the class will cover and how to best teach each specific technique to the camera aka YOU. It's not an easy job but Craftsy instructors love what they do and you will never hear them complain! They work with an instructional designer to create an in-depth outline of each lesson, and decide how to best prepare any needed props or “step-outs” that show what your project should look like throughout the different steps. Instead of a scripted class, instructors follow their outlines, live on camera, to create an authentic and engaging teaching experience for you to enjoy.

Neat Fact:

Craftsy classes are often filmed in one out of five Craftsy studios in Denver, CO. They fly in instructors from all over the world, who spend several days filming, then spend several weeks turning hours of footage into a 2 or 3 hour class experience that's been broken down and reviewed in-dept by top industry experts.

Why should you try out the Craftsy experience?
Craftsy classes are designed to have all of the benefits of attending a normal class, with less distractions. Classes are available online and on-demand. World-class instructors are always within your reach and you can retake the same class as many times as needed! Use the 30-second repeat feature to watch the same section over and over again until you master each technique!
