1. Jewellery Making: Turn Your Jewellery Making Skills Into A Full Time Business

Earn in Your Spare Time or Start a Business! Jewellery making is also enjoyable, you can make money from it, and the start-up costs are very low. It can even turn into a full-time career, and this course will aid your journey and answer all your questions along the way.

It may sound a little daunting but this Jewellery Making Course covers everything in easy-to absorb-modules, separated into smaller, even more manageble sections that will quickly take you from novice to designer to business owner, all in your own time and at your own pace.

What’s especially alluring about designing and selling your own jewellery, is that not only is it a creative use of your spare time but you can set up at home and design pieces in your spare time around a full-time job or other responsibilities.

  • A little bit of history about jewellery (don’t worry its only brief and actually quite interesting)
  • Considerations when designing various types of jewellery
  • How to manipulate and treat various materials
  • The equipment and supplies you’ll need to create various pieces and how to use these safely
  • How to gain inspiration and follow a design process to turn your ideas from sketches to finished pieces
  • How to go about outsourcing
  • How to set up your business, including fulfilling orders and selling your designs in a variety of ways (including wholesale, craft shows, and setting up an online shop)
  • How to gain employment in the industry

Who would benefit from this course?

If you love jewellery you have probably had ideas of what would make some great pieces, but that's where it's ended, or maybe you're already a competent jewellery maker but you need some help with the design process, how to market your business or start a career.

This comprehensive Jewellery Making Course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to set up your own Jewellery Making business. There are plenty of books and courses available to show you the hands-on part of the process but this course will fill you on everything else.

2. Knitting: From Knitting Novice To Business Owner

This 3-part Knitting Course takes students from novice, to designer, to business-owner, through 17 fully-illustrated, hands-on modules.

The course starts out by establishing the fundamentals, giving you practical advice, to get you practising straight away. This includes topics such as: how to knit, how to read patterns, and how to care for hand knits.

With the basics down, the 2nd part of the course advances students into designing hand knits, along with explanations of how to design some of the most popular knitted items of today, and providing sample patterns to practice with.

The 3rd part of the course takes you step-by-step through starting your own knitting business, whether you wish to sell your work, publish patterns you’ve designed or teach what you know.

To the untrained eye wool is wool, but if you’ve ever stepped into a wool shop you may well have been overwhelmed by choice. It can be hard to differentiate between the vast array of needles, yarns, and notions (accessories), which can be enough to frighten anyone off. The 1st module of the course guides students through some popular types of needles, yarns, and notions, so that they can begin practising, without worrying about their choice of materials and equipment.

The 2nd module of the Knitting Course dives straight into the basics of knitting, explaining the differences between knit and purl stitches and how to cast on and cast off. Practice is encouraged throughout the course and to make things even easier, you are told which needles and yarn type to use for this particular practice exercise.

The 3rd module expands on the 4 basic processes explained in the previous module, showing how combing knits and purls in different ways make different fabrics, with how to create the 3 basic/foundation fabrics explained here, these being: garter, stocking, and rib, along with additional techniques.

While what has been learned so far enables students to knit flat items in square and rectangular shapes, the 4th module of the course imparts essential techniques that will enable the apprentice knitter to design in various shapes, work in 3 dimensions (such as making socks or the top of a jumper sleeve), and correct their mistakes. The techniques taught include: increases, decreases, picking up stitches, knitting in the round, joining yarns, and fixing mistakes.

Knitters speak in their own language, so trying to trying to understand the knitting patterns they create can be like trying unlock a cipher. Fortunately, module 5 is the key; clearing up the jargon and giving students a full understanding of how to read and follow knitting patterns.

With a piece made, it can be easy to think it is complete, putting it aside to be used, given away or sold, and ready to move onto the next piece, but this may not always be the case. To take an item from ‘homemade’ to ‘hand crafted’ involves a little extra time and effort. The 6th module of the Knitting Course takes students through the following important finishing techniques: Weaving in Ends, Blocking, Seaming, and Caring for Knits (including how to add care labels to your work).

Taking students beyond the basics, module 7 concludes the 1st part of the course by teaching advanced techniques, showing students how to work with six of the most common categories of stitch pattern: Knit and Purl Patterns, Slip Stitch Patterns, Cables, Lace, Brioche, and Stranded Knitting.

With the techniques and methodologies of creating various pieces understood and practiced, the Knitting Course moves onto teaching students how to design their own pieces. This begins with module 8, which introduces the concept of design and the role of the designer, guiding students step-by-step through the design process, and finishing off with some design tips.

Module 9 focuses on scarf design, taking students through the various knitting methods, yarn choices, and tension, measurements, and yarn amounts, before discussing the considerations to make when designing a scarf. The module concludes with a project to follow: making a lightweight summer scarf, along with some tips on scarf design.

The 10th module guides students through creating baby blankets and afghan blankets. As easy to make as scarves, though taking a lot longer to create, these items can be as simple or complex as you wish. This module teaches you the how; through discussions on yarn choices, and tension, measurements, and yarn amounts, along with design information on creating your item with an all-over pattern or a pattern made from individual blocks.

Getting yet more advanced, the 11th module of the Knitting Course is all about making toys. Involving a lot of shaping, sewing, seaming, and blocking, this type of knitting requires excellent technique and a good creative eye but the results can be fantastic. Here you will be guided through how to design a toy, along with considerations to make when choosing yarns and tension, measurements, and yarn amounts. The end of the module guides you through making a knitted Tic Tac Toe.

There is more than meets the eye with the humble sock. Beginners to sock design can find the prospect daunting, but once the basic sock template is understood it can be the perfect canvas for creativity. Module 12 talks students through the anatomy of a sock, giving a full understanding of how they are constructed before moving on to explaining the various methods available when knitting socks. Following the same format as previous modules, the choice of yarns to use and the tension, measurements, and yarn amounts are discussed, along with a full explanation on how to design a sock. The exercise at the end of this module is to create a pair of toasty Hot Tamale socks, following the guide provided.

In terms of complexity, jumper design and construction can be the item that makes or breaks a new designer. In the 13th module of the course, learners will be taught about the different types of jumpers and how they are constructed, with information on the types of yarn, tension, measurements, and yarn amounts used. From here students are taken through how to design a drop shoulder jumper, before being asked to create their own drop shoulder pattern.

Once students have learned how to knit and how to design their own knitting patterns, the Knitting Course concludes with part 3, which is all about setting up a business and starting a new career, utilising the skills learnt throughout the course. Module 14 introduces the topic by discussing the foundations of creating a business. This talks about the kinds of business that students can create that capitalise on their particular skillsets, how to find a target market and then how to conduct market research, so that you can fully understand the customers who wish to sell to.

Dealing with budgeting and finances is not the reason most people get into this business but it is necessary, to ensure the health, stability, and growth of your business. The 15th module discusses areas including budgeting, pricing, how to find financing, and taxes.

The Knitting Course’s 16th module is all about how to sell and advertise the goods you create. This discusses the options available to you whether you intend to sell from a physical location, online or both, where to advertise, and the use of social media to gain a following, with tips on retaining customer interest in your business.

Before you take any action, you’ll need to find your path, and there’s no better way to do so than to write a business plan. The final module of the course guides students through creating an effective business plan, with information on each section that should be present in the plan and the questions to answer within each section. Following this sequence, students will be able to create a business plan for their own business by the end of the module. In addition, the module concludes with some information on copyright within the knitting industry.

Who would benefit from the course?

As an incredibly detailed and involved course that takes students from complete beginner to knitting aficionado. This course is for accessible to those who may have even just a passing interest in knitting, as the materials included quickly absorb their readers and reveal just how easy it is to get involved with this timeless pastime.

The Knitting Diploma Course will of course be of particular interest to those who have fancied giving knitting a try but didn’t know where to start or had even gone as far as looking at a knitting pattern but were put off by when trying to decipher the jargon within. Students are taken step-by-step along through everything they need to know to enjoy knitting for themselves or to make a business selling their work.

3. Perfumery: Learn The Art of Making Perfume

Creating your own homemade perfume has never been easier. Learn how to start creating different scents straight away in this easy to follow step-by-step course.

This Perfumery Course is an excellent way to gain a deeper understanding of the fragrance industry and how you can start selling your own branded creations. Perfume has often been described as ‘Liquid Emotion’. Learn how different scents affect the way that we feel and how they can enhance your well-being.

Who would benefit from this course?

Use your new perfume making skills to start your own business selling your own unique scents or why not be creative and make your own special perfume based gifts, perfect for any special occasion!

4. Sewing: Learn Basic And Advanced Sewing Techniques

Learn basic and advanced sewing techniques, a range of machine and hand stitching types, the equipment you need and how to use it, how to measure correctly and choose the right fabrics, how to follow commercial patterns and create your own, and how to build a business. You’ll even put your new-found skills to practice in 8 guided projects to get your portfolio started off.

For some, the most off-putting part of learning to sew is getting to grips with the sewing machine itself. The Sewing Diploma Course begins by removing all trepidation, teaching you the basic parts and functions of your sewing machine, no matter which brand you have. You will quickly learn how to operate a sewing machine, including how to thread the bobbin and thread your sewing machine, and even gain the confidence to troubleshoot any minor problems that may arise, and understand how to care for your machine.

Another area that may at first seem baffling, is the array of tools available to the sewer. The course introduces you to the basic tools and accessories that you need to have in your sewing basket and outlines what each does.

Before working on a garment for yourself or a client, it is important to take accurate measurements. You will learn how to correctly measure women and men and the importance of rechecking measurements as years go by, to allow for changes in weight or body shape.

Although the Sewing Diploma Course will teach you how to create your own custom-made projects, a great way to learn the basic principles of garment creation is by following commercial patterns. A skill every good sewer should possess, following commercial patterns, offers hands-on practice of the sewing techniques that you will use in with your own designs. This course shows you how to understand and follow commercial patterns.

Choosing a fabric for your project is an important step, as choosing incorrectly can ruin the look and feel of what you had envisaged. This course reviews natural and man-made fabrics, explaining the characteristics of various types of each and the ways in which they should be prepared for a project.

The Sewing Diploma Course provides practical instruction on basic and advanced sewing techniques including pressing, pinning, cutting, and marking fabric, how to insert a zipper, make buttonholes, and how to sew closures, such as hooks-and-eyes and snaps.

Basic hand and sewing machine stitches are covered comprehensively. Although sewing machines can sew many types of stitch, it is still important to learn how to make very basic hand stitches, as there are instances when machine sewing would be too aggressive for the fabric type or more difficult to use. You will learn how to employ a variety of hand and machine stitches and gain an understanding of when each should be used.

Whether you think you can draw or not, sketching is the quickest and most effective way of getting your ideas down and finessing them, making it an important skill to develop. You will learn the simple steps to getting an idea out of your mind and onto pattern paper, ready to be made.

The course takes all the skills you have learned and combines them into several projects for you to follow, all of which will help you to develop the various techniques you have learnt. Each project gives you a summary of the item that you will make, the materials you’ll need, and the skills you’ll develop, before giving you step-by-step guidance on how to create the piece. The fully-guided projects included in the course are:

  • Small Decorative Pillow
  • Placemat
  • Patchwork Table runner
  • Headband
  • Fashion Scarf
  • Pouch
  • Pin Cushion
  • Infinity Scarf

With your new skill set in place, the Sewing Course provides you with advice on setting up a business selling your items and services. You will learn how to find your niche, devise a business plan and create goals, track expenses and sales, and advertise and market your business.

Who would benefit from the course?

This comprehensive and exciting course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to make your own unique creations. The course takes you from a complete beginner in sewing right through to being confident enough to get going with lots of exciting projects.

This course will benefit you if you want to begin a career as a seamstress or tailor and need a solid foundation to build upon or if you have already learnt to sew but want to brush up on your skills and make a profit from your talents with your own sewing business.

5. Crochet: Learn To Crochet And Open Your Own Crochet Business

While working through this course, you will move from learning to crochet, to becoming a designer, to opening your own crochet business.

In Part I, you’ll learn all about how to crochet, from holding the hook to reading patterns. You’ll also learn a range of more advanced techniques.

In Part II, you’ll learn about designing crochet pieces and writing patterns. Each section will lead you, step-by-step, through making a different type of item; practice patterns are included to get you started.

In Part III, you’ll learn how to start your own crochet business, including the steps necessary for finding your target market, budgeting, and writing a business plan.

Who would benefit from the course?

Anyone with an interest in the topic will gain something from studying the Crochet Diploma Course, as it provides tutelage for absolute beginners, with practical, guided examples that are fully illustrated, so that you can follow along easily. For those who are already hobbyist crocheters, the 2nd and 3rd parts aid students in becoming designera (or crochet artista) and detail how to go about building a business and selling your creations or patterns.

  • How to gain inspiration and follow a design process to turn your ideas from sketches to finished pieces

Who would benefit from this course?

If you love jewellery you have probably had ideas of what would make some great pieces, but that's where it's ended, or maybe you're already a competent jewellery maker but you need some help with the design process, how to market your business or start a career.

This comprehensive Jewellery Making Course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to set up your own Jewellery Making business. There are plenty of books and courses available to show you the hands-on part of the process but this course will fill you on everything else.

2. Knitting: From Knitting Novice To Business Owner

This 3-part Knitting Course takes students from novice, to designer, to business-owner, through 17 fully-illustrated, hands-on modules.

The course starts out by establishing the fundamentals, giving you practical advice, to get you practising straight away. This includes topics such as: how to knit, how to read patterns, and how to care for hand knits.

With the basics down, the 2nd part of the course advances students into designing hand knits, along with explanations of how to design some of the most popular knitted items of today, and providing sample patterns to practice with.

The 3rd part of the course takes you step-by-step through starting your own knitting business, whether you wish to sell your work, publish patterns you’ve designed or teach what you know.

To the untrained eye wool is wool, but if you’ve ever stepped into a wool shop you may well have been overwhelmed by choice. It can be hard to differentiate between the vast array of needles, yarns, and notions (accessories), which can be enough to frighten anyone off. The 1st module of the course guides students through some popular types of needles, yarns, and notions, so that they can begin practising, without worrying about their choice of materials and equipment.

The 2nd module of the Knitting Course dives straight into the basics of knitting, explaining the differences between knit and purl stitches and how to cast on and cast off. Practice is encouraged throughout the course and to make things even easier, you are told which needles and yarn type to use for this particular practice exercise.

The 3rd module expands on the 4 basic processes explained in the previous module, showing how combing knits and purls in different ways make different fabrics, with how to create the 3 basic/foundation fabrics explained here, these being: garter, stocking, and rib, along with additional techniques.

While what has been learned so far enables students to knit flat items in square and rectangular shapes, the 4th module of the course imparts essential techniques that will enable the apprentice knitter to design in various shapes, work in 3 dimensions (such as making socks or the top of a jumper sleeve), and correct their mistakes. The techniques taught include: increases, decreases, picking up stitches, knitting in the round, joining yarns, and fixing mistakes.

Knitters speak in their own language, so trying to trying to understand the knitting patterns they create can be like trying unlock a cipher. Fortunately, module 5 is the key; clearing up the jargon and giving students a full understanding of how to read and follow knitting patterns.

With a piece made, it can be easy to think it is complete, putting it aside to be used, given away or sold, and ready to move onto the next piece, but this may not always be the case. To take an item from ‘homemade’ to ‘hand crafted’ involves a little extra time and effort. The 6th module of the Knitting Course takes students through the following important finishing techniques: Weaving in Ends, Blocking, Seaming, and Caring for Knits (including how to add care labels to your work).

Taking students beyond the basics, module 7 concludes the 1st part of the course by teaching advanced techniques, showing students how to work with six of the most common categories of stitch pattern: Knit and Purl Patterns, Slip Stitch Patterns, Cables, Lace, Brioche, and Stranded Knitting.

With the techniques and methodologies of creating various pieces understood and practiced, the Knitting Course moves onto teaching students how to design their own pieces. This begins with module 8, which introduces the concept of design and the role of the designer, guiding students step-by-step through the design process, and finishing off with some design tips.

Module 9 focuses on scarf design, taking students through the various knitting methods, yarn choices, and tension, measurements, and yarn amounts, before discussing the considerations to make when designing a scarf. The module concludes with a project to follow: making a lightweight summer scarf, along with some tips on scarf design.

The 10th module guides students through creating baby blankets and afghan blankets. As easy to make as scarves, though taking a lot longer to create, these items can be as simple or complex as you wish. This module teaches you the how; through discussions on yarn choices, and tension, measurements, and yarn amounts, along with design information on creating your item with an all-over pattern or a pattern made from individual blocks.

Getting yet more advanced, the 11th module of the Knitting Course is all about making toys. Involving a lot of shaping, sewing, seaming, and blocking, this type of knitting requires excellent technique and a good creative eye but the results can be fantastic. Here you will be guided through how to design a toy, along with considerations to make when choosing yarns and tension, measurements, and yarn amounts. The end of the module guides you through making a knitted Tic Tac Toe.

There is more than meets the eye with the humble sock. Beginners to sock design can find the prospect daunting, but once the basic sock template is understood it can be the perfect canvas for creativity. Module 12 talks students through the anatomy of a sock, giving a full understanding of how they are constructed before moving on to explaining the various methods available when knitting socks. Following the same format as previous modules, the choice of yarns to use and the tension, measurements, and yarn amounts are discussed, along with a full explanation on how to design a sock. The exercise at the end of this module is to create a pair of toasty Hot Tamale socks, following the guide provided.

In terms of complexity, jumper design and construction can be the item that makes or breaks a new designer. In the 13th module of the course, learners will be taught about the different types of jumpers and how they are constructed, with information on the types of yarn, tension, measurements, and yarn amounts used. From here students are taken through how to design a drop shoulder jumper, before being asked to create their own drop shoulder pattern.

Once students have learned how to knit and how to design their own knitting patterns, the Knitting Course concludes with part 3, which is all about setting up a business and starting a new career, utilising the skills learnt throughout the course. Module 14 introduces the topic by discussing the foundations of creating a business. This talks about the kinds of business that students can create that capitalise on their particular skillsets, how to find a target market and then how to conduct market research, so that you can fully understand the customers who wish to sell to.

Dealing with budgeting and finances is not the reason most people get into this business but it is necessary, to ensure the health, stability, and growth of your business. The 15th module discusses areas including budgeting, pricing, how to find financing, and taxes.

The Knitting Course’s 16th module is all about how to sell and advertise the goods you create. This discusses the options available to you whether you intend to sell from a physical location, online or both, where to advertise, and the use of social media to gain a following, with tips on retaining customer interest in your business.

Before you take any action, you’ll need to find your path, and there’s no better way to do so than to write a business plan. The final module of the course guides students through creating an effective business plan, with information on each section that should be present in the plan and the questions to answer within each section. Following this sequence, students will be able to create a business plan for their own business by the end of the module. In addition, the module concludes with some information on copyright within the knitting industry.

Who would benefit from the course?

As an incredibly detailed and involved course that takes students from complete beginner to knitting aficionado. This course is for accessible to those who may have even just a passing interest in knitting, as the materials included quickly absorb their readers and reveal just how easy it is to get involved with this timeless pastime.

The Knitting Diploma Course will of course be of particular interest to those who have fancied giving knitting a try but didn’t know where to start or had even gone as far as looking at a knitting pattern but were put off by when trying to decipher the jargon within. Students are taken step-by-step along through everything they need to know to enjoy knitting for themselves or to make a business selling their work.

3. Perfumery: Learn The Art of Making Perfume

Creating your own homemade perfume has never been easier. Learn how to start creating different scents straight away in this easy to follow step-by-step course.

This Perfumery Course is an excellent way to gain a deeper understanding of the fragrance industry and how you can start selling your own branded creations. Perfume has often been described as ‘Liquid Emotion’. Learn how different scents affect the way that we feel and how they can enhance your well-being.

Who would benefit from this course?

Use your new perfume making skills to start your own business selling your own unique scents or why not be creative and make your own special perfume based gifts, perfect for any special occasion!

4. Sewing: Learn Basic And Advanced Sewing Techniques

Learn basic and advanced sewing techniques, a range of machine and hand stitching types, the equipment you need and how to use it, how to measure correctly and choose the right fabrics, how to follow commercial patterns and create your own, and how to build a business. You’ll even put your new-found skills to practice in 8 guided projects to get your portfolio started off.

For some, the most off-putting part of learning to sew is getting to grips with the sewing machine itself. The Sewing Diploma Course begins by removing all trepidation, teaching you the basic parts and functions of your sewing machine, no matter which brand you have. You will quickly learn how to operate a sewing machine, including how to thread the bobbin and thread your sewing machine, and even gain the confidence to troubleshoot any minor problems that may arise, and understand how to care for your machine.

Another area that may at first seem baffling, is the array of tools available to the sewer. The course introduces you to the basic tools and accessories that you need to have in your sewing basket and outlines what each does.

Before working on a garment for yourself or a client, it is important to take accurate measurements. You will learn how to correctly measure women and men and the importance of rechecking measurements as years go by, to allow for changes in weight or body shape.

Although the Sewing Diploma Course will teach you how to create your own custom-made projects, a great way to learn the basic principles of garment creation is by following commercial patterns. A skill every good sewer should possess, following commercial patterns, offers hands-on practice of the sewing techniques that you will use in with your own designs. This course shows you how to understand and follow commercial patterns.

Choosing a fabric for your project is an important step, as choosing incorrectly can ruin the look and feel of what you had envisaged. This course reviews natural and man-made fabrics, explaining the characteristics of various types of each and the ways in which they should be prepared for a project.

The Sewing Diploma Course provides practical instruction on basic and advanced sewing techniques including pressing, pinning, cutting, and marking fabric, how to insert a zipper, make buttonholes, and how to sew closures, such as hooks-and-eyes and snaps.

Basic hand and sewing machine stitches are covered comprehensively. Although sewing machines can sew many types of stitch, it is still important to learn how to make very basic hand stitches, as there are instances when machine sewing would be too aggressive for the fabric type or more difficult to use. You will learn how to employ a variety of hand and machine stitches and gain an understanding of when each should be used.

Whether you think you can draw or not, sketching is the quickest and most effective way of getting your ideas down and finessing them, making it an important skill to develop. You will learn the simple steps to getting an idea out of your mind and onto pattern paper, ready to be made.

The course takes all the skills you have learned and combines them into several projects for you to follow, all of which will help you to develop the various techniques you have learnt. Each project gives you a summary of the item that you will make, the materials you’ll need, and the skills you’ll develop, before giving you step-by-step guidance on how to create the piece. The fully-guided projects included in the course are:

  • Small Decorative Pillow
  • Placemat
  • Patchwork Table runner
  • Headband
  • Fashion Scarf
  • Pouch
  • Pin Cushion
  • Infinity Scarf

With your new skill set in place, the Sewing Course provides you with advice on setting up a business selling your items and services. You will learn how to find your niche, devise a business plan and create goals, track expenses and sales, and advertise and market your business.

Who would benefit from the course?

This comprehensive and exciting course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to make your own unique creations. The course takes you from a complete beginner in sewing right through to being confident enough to get going with lots of exciting projects.

This course will benefit you if you want to begin a career as a seamstress or tailor and need a solid foundation to build upon or if you have already learnt to sew but want to brush up on your skills and make a profit from your talents with your own sewing business.

5. Crochet: Learn To Crochet And Open Your Own Crochet Business

While working through this course, you will move from learning to crochet, to becoming a designer, to opening your own crochet business.

In Part I, you’ll learn all about how to crochet, from holding the hook to reading patterns. You’ll also learn a range of more advanced techniques.

In Part II, you’ll learn about designing crochet pieces and writing patterns. Each section will lead you, step-by-step, through making a different type of item; practice patterns are included to get you started.

In Part III, you’ll learn how to start your own crochet business, including the steps necessary for finding your target market, budgeting, and writing a business plan.

Who would benefit from the course?

Anyone with an interest in the topic will gain something from studying the Crochet Diploma Course, as it provides tutelage for absolute beginners, with practical, guided examples that are fully illustrated, so that you can follow along easily. For those who are already hobbyist crocheters, the 2nd and 3rd parts aid students in becoming designera (or crochet artista) and detail how to go about building a business and selling your creations or patterns.
