Have you heard of Craftsy?!
The company I am spotlighting today has developed a sort of online creative university.
It’s a website designed with creativity in mind- a place in this world where creative people can go and make new things, learn techniques from experts and polish up or advance in crafty skills.
Craftsy is a website chock full of instructional videos (really good ones!) from anything from vintage cake design, to Vintage style veils and headpieces, to retro bombshell dress designing, to knitting or vintage inspired designs, all sorts of sewing and even photography. You get the idea and I could go on.. on and on, the classes are endless.. and that’s just a small preview! In the next few months they will be adding even more courses to their catalogs!
Here is an example of just a few of their classes below..a little snippet..
You can take classes on your own schedule, and at your own pace, but still be able to interact with your classmates and instructors. So cool!
Craftsy produces four to six new classes a month. Courses generally cost between $20–$50.Around half of the courses are filmed in the company’s Denver studios, with the remainder being filmed in the instructor’s studio or shop. Videos also include a 30-second repeat feature to enable students to rewind to sections they have missed.
Courses are delivered by experienced craft teachers and video courses are typically 10 lessons long, amounting to five hours of video tuition. Courses paid for never expire, so can be rewatched and searched to find a particular section. Students who are having difficulty with a particular method or technique can also post a question and photo to get help from the instructor or other people taking the class, with the question appearing as a pop-up bubble below that section of the video.
In addition to video lessons, Craftsy has a range of downloadable step-by-step craft workshops, combining photographs and instructions. Workshops typically cover one project, whereas videos cover several projects or techniques.
Check out all these fabulous sewing and design classes, um…wow!

I also love their array of wedding related instructional video classes below. So much fun and perfect way to DIY your wedding. I designed my own veils and floral headpieces for my bridesmaids and it was so much fun! Oh and wait until you check out their cake design classes!, they are very popular and the teachers are amazing! It’s all very fresh, modern, professional and edgy as well. This is a great way to learn and super fun! I also love that you can keep your classes to refer back to and watch again..
Here is a little below about their wedding related classes...there are of course a ton more here..
I personally am in love with Craftsy! I am now officially addicted to learning new ideas and picking up new talents constantly. What a fabulous site! I am so happy to share it with you..
