Structure of the course

This course leads you from beginner to more advanced techniques. It is broken down into 6 modules. Each is jam-packed, with five lessons totalling 30 lessons throughout the course! 

Most lessons include a video, walking you through the why and when of the technique or tool before demonstrating how to use it. On average, these are under 8 minutes in length.

Feel free though, to jump around between modules and subjects to those that interest you. My suggestion is to work through from the start. A refresher on content that you are already familiar is also quite valuable. 

Each week, the next module will be unlocked for you to study at your own pace. released and available to read and watch. If you clicked/tapped in the box at signup, allowing me to send you emails, you will be notified by email. Alternatively, just log in at any time to see where you are up to.

We all have different learning styles. Passively watching a video is great for some. You may prefer to be hands-on and be following along with my practical demonstrations on your phone. Bit harder, if you are watching the video on your smartphone!

You may even prefer to learn by skim reading through text – hence, why this text is here for you...

Weekly activities

At the end of each week, there is a task to get you involved and practising what you have learned. We all learn differently. Me, I get excited with new knowledge and like to be hands-on and get out there practising.
