Welcome! CraftCourses.com is an independent UK company founded in 2011 with the mission to connect makers, artists and craftspeople with those eager to learn and experience the joy of making. We understand the challenge of making a living from craft and know that teaching offers a sustainable and steady income, whilst the creative experience enriches our lives and protects important, traditional and contemporary craft skills.

Easy to use

Focus on making and teaching and leave the software and admin to us. We find your customers, get them booked in, send reminders, collect reviews, and handle refunds. It's very easy to re-schedule courses and your earnings will arrive in 3 working days from when your course or kit was delivered. Enjoy direct contact with your prospective students. Easy-peasy!

Simple and cost-effective

The commission structure is simple: we only earn when you earn, taking a commission of 15% if you opt for 'instant' bookings or 18% on bookings 'on request'. If you would like to keep all your bookings under one roof, you can opt to install our easy to use widget on your website and all bookings or orders that come via this route will only be subject to a 6% commission. Full details and examples below.
