Domestika is a creative education website – it’s the largest online community for creatives with courses from leading industry professionals. They’ve offer a range of free courses too including video and photography skills, drawing, stamping techniques for kids.

Make Art That Sells is offering free access to their Money BadAss online course. This course usually costs £179.

Paul Jardine is running an SEO course via zoom on Monday 23rd March. It’s not free but at £60 a head (normally £85). It’s only for four people so you’ll get lots of opportunity to ask questions. I’ve been on Paul’s SEO course and it’s excellent.

Crafting and Yoga Skills

Here’s some simple beginners YouTube videos to learn crochet by my friend Jo Johnston from French Knots Studio. Jo is hoping to run online knitting/sewing and crochet classes soon.

Helen Roscoe will be running yoga classes on Monday mornings and Wednesday evenings. I plan to give them a go. Find out more here.

The Outdoor Bloke aka Lewis Herridge. He’s a runner and outdoor guy and he’s always out in nature doing runs. He has a lot of wisdom to sharing about the importance of nature in our lives. I’m finding him particularly soothing right now.

Budget Cooking Ideas

Jack Monroe has been writing books & posting free online budget recipes for ages – her website is a great resource for budget meals, with easy-to-find ingredients. Her chickpea & peach curry is apparently spectacular:
