In January 2016, Big Cartel and Skillshare are teaming up to challenge you create an online class and share your expertise with a global community of students. Big Cartel store owners such as Kate Miss, Melanie Abrantes and AdamJK have already created great classes on Skillshare, and are opening up teaching to the Big Cartel community with a special contest! Add “teacher” to your list of job titles, plus qualify to win a prize package including a free Big Cartel store for life, a new iPad Pro, and a Skillshare membership. Learn more below. 

Who teaches?

Skillshare classes are taught by everyday creators who are passionate about what they do – people like you, your friends, and your colleagues. You don’t need to have experience or be well-known to start a class, grow a following and make an income. We’ll help you get there.

Why teach?

Teaching is a great way to earn real money, grow your online presence and drive business back to your store. As a teacher, you’ll join a community of creatives, makers and enthusiasts who are sharing their passion and inspiring over a million students worldwide. Learn more about Skillshare and teaching at

How do I get started?

Sign up here to create a class on Skillshare over the next 30 days. Skillshare will walk you through every step of the way, including a 1-on-1 session with one of Skillshare’s VIP teaching consultants.

The contest begins January 12th, but participants can get started at any time by signing up above. Every Big Cartel member who publishes a class on Skillshare by 11:59 PM PST February 12th will get:

  • A $50 cash bonus
  • A free Membership to Skillshare
