This year Etsy will be partnering with the awesome team at Work-Shop to bring you a range of Etsy Master Classes designed to teach you new arts and crafts skills and take your Etsy shops to the next level.
Work-Shop is a creative concept designed to broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. They provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art, teaming up with local creative stars to share knowledge and skills.
Over the next few months, some superstar Etsy sellers will be putting on their teaching hats and sharing their amazing skills; from fashion illustration to sock toys and a whole lot in between! You will also have the chance to learn the skills for selling on Etsy, directly from some of Australia’s most successful sellers.
Classes will be kicking off in Sydney and will also be available in Melbourne and Auckland in the coming months…and even more locations in the future as Work-Shop continue on their path to world domination!
So let’s get started with Sydney’s class schedule for May:
