Jestoni explains the user interface of Affinity Designer in an easy to understand manner. Whilst this is not really a 'hands on class', it provides a lot of information and a bunch of tricks to get going with your own designs. Affinity Designer seems to have some easy accessible features that are not so readily available in other vector/raster programs.
