Zoom and Sanity

Sharing is caring!

My first course was the Willow

My first course was the Willow

It’s been a strange year. Most people I feel have been stuck in some kind of limbo. The one really positive thing to come out of this whole fiasco for me is the positive reaction that my Zoom courses have produced.

Back in April with all my physical classes cancelled I decided to take a chance and create ‘Monday Makes’. The idea being that on a Monday people join a course via Zoom, learn some skills, hints and tips along the way.

Monday Makes is still going strong and I am so glad I went with it. It provided a much needed focus for me and a place to come together and learn something new in company (isolated) for others.

Below are some of the items produced.

Building off the back of this I have released the next block of Monday Makes to take us to the New Year. I am so excited to get started on these. If you require any more information or to book please feel free to contact me.
