We have great news for makers and lovers of arts and crafts!
Have you ever wondered — while browsing store aisles for home accessories or while browsing images of beautifully made arts and crafts — how these things are made? Or maybe, you’d like to learn how to paint new ideas (or draw or knit or quilt, and more) by watching someone show you how?
We’d like to introduce … Creative Bug!
Creative Bug is an awesome resource of videos, classes, and workshops that will tickle one’s creative side. It is great for all ages!
There is an abundance of offerings to choose from. Cute, delightful, stress-relieving projects. Short, fun, creative, segmented, instances of learning. Online classes and workshops. A community of artists and staff experts. And a million more artsy and crafty ideas to make something beautiful for your space and homes, for you and your loved ones!
The videos are ad-free, and the content has been selected and screened, with presentations by award-winning artists. Simply perfect for young minds, and charmingly inspiring for all ages! The classes come with detailed lists of materials needed, some with downloadable patterns and recipes.
There are classes for Art+Design, Sewing, Quilting, Paper, Knitting, Crochet, Food+Home, Jewelry, Holiday Party, Kids, and so much more. In the sampling of classes featured here, there are instructions on how to make these projects: Stitched Rope Basket, Double Paper Wine Wrap, Sew A Luckyjuju Puppy Doll, Paper Flowers, Paper Wedding Crafts, Playing with Watercolor, Hand-Built Ceramics, Easy Home Decor Sewing, and Hand Sew Farm Animal Finger Puppets.
