I don’t consider myself to be very crafty but I do like to do some homemade things every now and again. I would like to learn how to do more so I was able to find free craft classes online and around my city. I don’t know if I will stick with some of these craft hobbies so this is a great way to get a feel for them without having to spend a dime!
These aren’t just knitting classes, either. There is something for every interest. I was able to find free craft classes for sewing, jewelry making, photography, cooking/baking, cake decorating, painting and so much more. You can learn so much with these classes!
One of my favorite places to get free craft classes is Craftsy. They have a ton of classes that you can purchase, they are very affordable, but they also offer free mini courses. As of this posting, there are 44 free courses. Just a few are:
- birthday card making
- garden design
- wirework jewelry
- cabinetry tips
- knife skills
- family portraits
- Fondant techniques
- figure drawing
There is something for every interest. All of the classes have videos that are very easy to follow along with.
Most of the major craft stores offer free craft classes at least once a month. I know that Michael’s, Jo-Ann Fabric, A.C. Moore, and Hobby Lobby offer these events. Just check out their websites and click on “Classes” to get more info on the schedule and what they are offering.
You can even check out Lowe’s and Home Depot. I know they will offer classes for DIY and building interests. They even have fun kid crafts as well.
A lot of libraries will offer free classes to the public. You will probably have more success with this if you live in a bigger city. I checked out my local library’s calendar of events and they are offering classes for sewing, knitting, crocheting, photography, and bead work. This is a great way to get out and meet people with the same interests, too!
Some community colleges offer free classes to the public, some are even craft classes. I know that some states offer any classes to people aged 65+ tuition free. You can check out this site for more information and to see if your state offers this.
With the holidays approaching, I know that a lot of you want to learn how to make things for gift giving or to take better family pictures. Whatever your interest, I hope you can learn a knew hobby using these free craft classes. I love being able to expand my skills for free!
