Craftsy Designer Workshops: How They Work
Come craft along with members in the Craftsy community! Craftsy Workshops, including knit-alongs and quilting workshops, are a refreshingly easy way to learn how to make something. Workshops are so much more than a mere pattern. They have in-depth written instructions and ultra clear, close-up photos with each step.
Additionally, these written tutorials include the interactive elements you’ve come to love with your classes. You can ask questions to the designer and all of the crafters who are also participating in the workshop. In fact, you can even add a tip to help others along the way if you’ve got something to share!
You can take workshops whenever you like and at whatever pace you prefer! Once the workshop begins, enjoy interacting with the expert designer for up to two months. After that, keep the discussion going with your fellow crafters and review earlier Q&A with the designer.
Here’s an overview of all you get in a Craftsy workshop:
Add a tip.
As you are working, you may have an idea to make the project even easier. Or perhaps you have an alternate idea (for instance, substituting a fabric). Post your tip to the workshop by clicking “Add tip” from the yellow box called Section Discussion. Then, others can read and use your tip and leave comments, as well.
Start a discussion.
As you are creating the project, you may have an observation that you think is worth bringing up to your fellow crafters. If so, click “Start a discussion” to post it. Like a tip and a question, it’s posted to both the designer and the community, and everyone can post their thoughts.
Write yourself helpful notes as you work, and save them to the section that they apply to. That way, you won’t be left wondering what your note refers to. Simply click “Add a note” in the gray navigation menu along the top.
Rate and review.
Once you’re all done with the workshop, add your rating and review to it so other Craftsy members can see how you liked it, and if it’s right for them. Of course, as you explore the workshops you’re interested, you can check out all the ratings and reviews to see what others thought of it!
