I just learned that you can access Creativebug classes through the Salt Lake City Library. Creativebug is a subscription video site where well-known artists/makers teach you different things. I’ve heard about it for years but never bothered to check out pricing until I saw Lisa Congdon had a new month-long “developing your visual vocabulary” class for beginners. Since this is the Year of the Dilettante, I was interested enough to consider $5/month, but now I can get it all for FREE.

There are some big names, too–Lisa Congdon, Anna Maria Horner, Kaffe Fassett… There are so many topics, too: Cake decorating (!),  furniture refinishing and upholstery (!!),  and even bookbinding (!!!).

Creativebug has a nationwide library program so if you’re not local, chances are you can still access everything for free. What a find for us dilettantes!
