Creative eBooks, Online Courses, Online Workshops & Free Tutorials

The last 12 months have been a bit of a rollercoaster for creative small businesses, artists, designers, makers and indie brands. With many workshops, events and contracts cancelled we had to adapt and find other ways to come together and learn new skills. Hardly anyone knew Zoom at the beginning of last year, now we’re using it almost on a daily basis. There maybe a silver lining in all of this: it has opened up new avenues to reach a wider audience. We’re hoping that this year will prove easier to once again get together face to face. In the meantime here are some of the creative eBooks, online courses, online workshops and free tutorials which have inspired us.

ebook by Sustainable Designer Kathryn Davey

“The Pinterest Workshop was delivered in a chilled out, collaborative setting. We were taught the technical ways of Pinterest in a very easy to understand way. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get under the skin of this app which can offer such good returns on investment. .”

Although I actively embrace all forms of social media for myself and my clients, I have previously only ‘dabbled’ in Pinterest. It was after taking part in one of Dörte’s Pinterest coaching sessions that I truly began to find the love. Understanding that Pinterest is more of a search engine than a social media platform, and creating content that really works and drives traffic has been part of this journey.
