More about the Mentor
We love teaching our crafting skills, but we know we cannot always teach face to face. Having creatives miss out wasn’t an option for us, so we introduced online courses in 2019.
We started with the Free Online Gift-Wrapping tutorial which has been accessed around the globe by hundreds of people. From there, we continued to build our online school with different types of gift-wrapping tutorials. In recent years we have been creating more online courses for handmade gifts which have also proved to be just as popular.
Training is a huge passion of ours, and we enjoy experimenting with different styles until we have mastered the technique. Giving detailed tutorials is a must, and we record our courses to be followed easily by all levels of crafters. We have more planned for the coming year and can’t wait to share them all with you.
