Sustainable Life Skills Coach-Learn to Mend



First time teacher in the August Challenge

Hi, I'm Meliors Simms and I've been working through the milestones in the August Teach Challenge to create my first class:A Beginners Guide to the Art of Mending :Patch Project which I will publish in a couple of days.

Its the first in a series of classes teaching sustainable life skills to increase your resilience and reduce your dependence on a consumer lifestyle. This mending class is aimed at absolute beginners and no sewing machine is required, so if you can't thread a needle or you have forgotten how to sew, this is the perfect class for you.  The class project is to mend an item of clothing that needs repair, so students will be able to have a practical useful result as well as the satisfaction of learning a new skill.

The class is finished and I'm in the process of uploading it now but I don't want to hit publish until I have got my marketing ready to press play at the same time as I press publish.  I'm aware that marketing in the first days are super important for any new class, but especially for a first time teacher on Skillshare, so I appreciate the tips you've shared here.
