Sewing, weaving, painting, woodworking, cake decorating, gardening, cooking, jewelery, photography and much, much more — pick an online class from Craftsy and it’s yours free, just for being savvy enough to find this post! Craftsy is also one of the essential sponsors of the Boulder Mini Maker Faire, this Saturday and Sunday at the Boulder County Fairgrounds! (Tickets cheaper in advance at the link below.)
Here at Maker Boulder, we’re overjoyed to partner with makerish-folks who happen to have hometown roots — Craftsy was started in Denver by a foursome of first-time entrepreneurs. After the founders first gave wine tasting and economics classes a whirl, John’s mother-in-law, an avid quilter, suggested trying quilting instruction, and from there, it was history! Now the site offers online classes, popular supplies, and indie patterns to over six million members.
The online learning platform delivers top-quality content taught by the world’s best instructors, anytime convenience, and the intimacy of an in-person experience. Need to see a demonstration more than one? No worries, the HD classes are yours forever and always, and you can always click back to re-watch anything that didn’t sink in the first time. Still have questions? Use the Craftsy interface to ask question of your expert instructors. You can even interact with other people in the class and upload pictures of your finished projects!
Part instruction, part community, part inspiration, part super-simple way to get the plans and supplies you need, Craftsy is a doorway into so many of those projects and techniques that you’ve always wanted to try.
