Finally! I have succeeded in creating an online classroom and publishing my first class. And it is FREE!
For all the turmoil we experienced in 2020, it was certainly a year of learning new things for me. Shooting and editing video, creating an online classroom website and actually publishing a class were the biggest. I could not have imagined how much time and energy it would consume.
Do I wish all that learning time had been directed toward actual weaving? A little. However, I love teaching and was determined to find a way to continue during the pandemic quarantine.
The class is titled: Color, Pattern, Shape Part 1: Harnessing Fiber Art Design Ideas. You can access it through my online classroom HERE. It is a handy exercise I developed for those times when I can’t figure out what to weave next–a little warm-up for the creative side of your brain.
When you first visit the classroom, you’ll notice I headlined it Speaking of Weaving. Sound familiar? On that landing page, scroll down, and you will see the new class card. Click on that to enroll. If you have never taken a class on the Thinkific learning platform before, you’ll need to register. Follow the links to the course dashboard. The lessons will be arranged in chapters down the left side. As you finish a lesson, you’ll be prompted to move to the next.
The course is available on demand, so you can start anytime and work through it at your own pace. There are opportunities to interact with me and with others in the class: through an assignment you can upload for my review, the discussion feature on each lesson and a community group where you may post pictures and comments.
PLUS, there’s a bonus offer for completing all the lessons, assignments and follow-up survey: A $10 DISCOUNT off the next class in the series: Color, Pattern, Shape Part 2: Translating Ideas into Original Textile Designs. I am still working on that one, but hope to have it ready by March.
