Introducing Mastered

Here’s some great news for all you designer / makers. Revealed at the weekend, Mastered is a brand new initiative from the team who brought us the Amazings. Creative Director, Perri Lewis describes it as

… a place where creatives can get access to the world’s best teachers, take online courses and secure exclusive career opportunities to help grow their business. It’s pretty exciting stuff – there’s nothing out there like this. I really hope that you like it.

She’s right, although you can find dozens of online learning materials aimed at the amateur designer / maker, these are the first ones I’ve found that provide opportunities for learning alongside professional support to grow your business.

I’m really excited to try the “Tailoring for Vintage Finds” course,simply because I am forever having to nip in the waist or let out the hips on my vintage purchases and those kind of skills aren’t really covered by the dressmaking classes at my local college. This course has been developed by Traidremade, a company I really admire for their stance on ethical fashion.

Also on offer are some fabulous  jewellery making and embroidery courses, which I would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of using their skills to make a living.

Before you commit to purchasing any of the courses, you can  take a free trial which gives you a chance to explore the whole course rather than just a “taster”.

Although I could tell you about the detailed notes, the easy to follow videos and the access to online support there’s really no better way to find out what’s on offer than by visiting the site for yourself. While you’re there, do check out the blog, where I found this really useful piece about using Instagram to promote your business.

And, if you are inspired to buy a course for yourself or a friend pop over to Perri’s blog for a fab introductory discount.
