It is no secret that brides all across the country are falling in love with DIY wedding projects many of which come from the popular site, Pinterest but seeing those beautiful images online does not exactly help you get the finished item, until now. I recently heard about an awesome site called Craftsy which offers online craft classes, workshops, patterns and more. If you are anything like me and love the crafted wedding look but are not exactly sure how to go about actually making the products then Craftsy is the spot for you.
Craftsy is offering up to 50% off their classes to Rustic Wedding Chic readers – check out the discount classes here.
A wedding is one of the most important and special days of a couple’s life together. Adding DIY elements to a wedding can make the day truly unique and put a personal mark on the event. Getting involved with the design and the details of your wedding is the best way to make the day completely your own, and allow guests to see what you’re passionate about, not to mention that Do It Yourself wedding projects can help you save money and experience a sense of pride and accomplishment!
Craftsy produces engaging, interactive online classes in quilting, sewing, knitting, cake decorating, paper crafts, jewelry making, and more. Each class is taught by an acclaimed instructor and is comprised of several hours of HD-quality video content. The Craftsy online learning platform features proprietary technology which seamlessly blends video lessons and discussions together, allowing students to easily interact with their instructor and classmates. Students can start and stop a class at any point, repeat important sections, and easily pick up where they left off, allowing them to learn on their own schedule and at their own pace. Access never expires, so students can always refer back to the content until they have the lessons mastered.
