As an adult, we often forget to make learning a priority. When I left school, it felt like that part of my life was over and I was at a loss for how to continue my education going forward. In the past, you had to carve out an extended amount of time and a significant amount of money into learning a new skill. With technology changing and the need to be nimble and resourceful greater now than ever, I’ve become completely obsessed with Skillshare. If you follow W&D on IG stories, you know how often I spend my lunch break taking a class! From brushing up my design and patterning making skills to defining our business plans, Skillshare has been an invaluable resource for me as I push W&D into new territories (ahem, product and pattern design). I thought it would be helpful to put together a list of my favorite classes and extend an offer for readers.
To make it easy for everyone to dive right in, Skillshare is offering a special 3-month trial offer for only $0.99 for the entire month of January. Woohoo! Here, you can take either of my Skillshare classes which are great for building your personal brand or business and constructing a meaningful following on social media.
Who needs this class? This is a great class for anyone who needs to come up with concepts quickly.
Why take it? Generating ideas quickly not only helps kickstart a project or get you out of a creative slump, it also makes you more effective in group meetings and builds your confidence around creative and critical thinking.
Who needs this class? Anyone looking to learn how to make patterns!
Why take it? Bonnie talks a lot about how she is self-taught, which is both inspiring and encouraging as she walks you through her entire workflow processes. She is SO thorough, I feel like you can have limited knowledge of Adobe and still get a ton of out of her classes.
Thank you for being here. For being open to enjoying life’s simple pleasures and looking inward to understand yourself, your neighbors, and your fellow humans! I’m looking forward to chatting with you.
