Hello everyone, hope you’re doing well. Times are strange at the moment and either people are incredibly busy doing essential jobs or stuck at home self-isolating and social distancing. If you’re stuck at home, I hope you’ve got some crafts to cosy up with. I thought that I’d try put together a list of some online resources for learning crafts here and that people can comment with their sources.
A while back Marie from Cosy Crochet started doing the Crochet Course over on Centre of Excellence. I enjoyed reading her blog series on doing the course and considered it myself. The courses cost money, normally £127, but at the moment they have an offer up that if you use the code UPSKILL all courses are £29 so now could be the time to learn a new skill. Maybe that crochet course or the knitting one (which I’m going to do!) is up your alley or you’d rather cross stitch, embroidery or even card making.
Maybe you’d like to learn to weave – if you do, there’s a free Weaving 101 course on Yarnworker you might be interested in.
Skillshare is always a good site for learning new skills. It costs money (monthly charge) but if you’ve never signed up before, you can get 1 or 2 months free and then cancel before they start charging you. There’s a ton of creative videos there so there’s bound to be something you’re interested in.
So those are some of the resources I can think of off the top of my head. Feel free to share some other online resources that might be of use to people and just what you’re doing in general to cope with the extra time you might be spending at home.
