Each class is comprised of multiple high-definition videos for convenient step-by-step learning that participants can watch as often as they’d like. Students also can ask the instructor questions and upload photos for personalized responses, talk to other people taking the same class, and access supporting materials.
Instructor Joshua John Russell sketches a cake design inspired by modern fashion, then demonstrates how to imprint fondant to mimic lace, corduroy, and crocodile skin and how to pipe icing into swirls and puffy pearl-like shapes. His students follow along, step by step. Yet those very students are spread across the country, learning from their own kitchens, dressed in their own aprons and footie pajamas. That’s because Joshua’s class, Fashion-Inspired Fondant, is part of the Craftsy library.
A website devoted to dabblers and hotshots in knitting, baking, quilting, jewelry making and other fun and expressive media, Craftsy has produced more than 90 instructional videos taught by accomplished crafters. Once students purchase a class, they can view it whenever and as many times as they’d like, rewinding to rewatch a particularly intricate skill, bookmarking favorite moments for later perusal, and pausing to look at family photographs one last time before folding them into origami roses. Craftsy supplements its regular classes with smaller-scale workshops, downloadable project patterns, and a gallery of projects for inspiration.
