Online Classes: Fabric Design with Spoonflower
Learn more about how to design fabrics with Spoonflower, PicMonkey, Photoshop and more. I offer basic classes for beginners that will walk you through designing and uploading your very first design and building skills in PicMonkey. In the near future, I plan to offer intermediate and master classes for students who want to dig in to learning seamless repeats, Photoshop, Illustrator and more. Keep an eye on this page.
- Classes are offered using the CourseCraft platform. To access the classes, you just have to set up a free account with them and you can do that when you enroll.
- You can sign in to your account and have access to all of the class materials any time so you can do the class at your own pace and come back to it any time.
- The lessons work great on computers, laptops or iPad/tablet. (Depending on the class topic, you may need to use a computer to follow along with some of the hands on projects. A tablet won’t work for everything.)
- You don’t need any special software to watch the video or participate in class. It all works in your regular web browser.
Class format and what to expect
I did a lot of research and surveys and decided to not go with a “craft tv show” kind of class format. I don’t like to just sit and passively watch a video how-to and it turns out that a lot of you don’t really love that either.
So, these classes are not going to be like a 45 minute video for you to sit and watch. They are going to be more like an interactive book. There will be articles, checklists and step-by-step instructions to read. There will be short video clips where I demonstrate hands-on parts of the lesson. I will be showing lots of screen capture, so you can see videos of my screen as I am working and you can follow along. There are even hands-on samples you can get so that you can see the same fabrics I am talking about and follow along with the lesson. Many classes will have downloadable files: handouts, cheat sheets, or files that are set up so you can do the projects with me.
