discover [craftsy]

I'm always looking for ways to learn new skills in an affordable way, and recently discovered a new way to satiate my desire to self-educate on the cheap, not to mention with complete flexibility: craftsy.
Craftsy is a destination for downloadable online instruction in all areas of craft. Watch the videos at home on your own schedule and build skills! You can do it all here, from learning how to crochet socks to amazing cake design with frosting to jewelry and paper classes to developing photography skills. Once you select an area of interest, you can see classes, projects, and a blog specific to that craft. The latest blog post for food is about making your own extracts.

If you're just getting started and want to sample the goods, try out a free mini-class; I'm currently enrolled in Complete Knife Skills, which covers basic knife skills, shortcuts for produce, and even sharpening and honing instruction.

If you're ready to take it to the next level, try a paid class. You'll get more access to the instructor, who will participate in group chats with the students, and the videos are longer and more in-depth. I've got my eye on the Building Flavorful Soups class, taught by a James Beard Award-winning chef.

What would you like to learn today?
