Intro to How to Make a Spiral Ribbon Lei – I Need your Feedback!

Hey, everyone!!

As I mentioned Monday, this month I’m publishing my first Skillshare class. Exciting! I’m working on filming the class right now, and I have a draft of the intro up on YouTube. I’ll probably add some “titles” at the beginning, but I’m interested in getting some feedback first. I’d really appreciate it if you have a couple of spare minutes to watch and can let me know what you think. Is it clear as an intro? Does it spark any interest in the project?

With a little luck and a lot of work, next Thursday I’ll be able to share the completed class! Skillshare has options for both “free” and “Premium” classes, and I’m leaning towards at least starting this class of as a free one. That may change in the future, but I’ll probably leave it as free for at least the first couple of months as I try to create additional classes and hopefully grow my Skillshare audience. For folks that have previously published Skillsahre classes, what is your strategy? Did you start by making your class free, or did you go Premium from day one?

    You’re obviously a pro at making these videos!
    As a crafter I’d love to see an upclose shot of the lei right at the beginning. Maybe one or two different colored ones? That would get me excited to join the class!

      Great suggestion! I’ve made a “cover image” that has two lei (the burgundy one I’m wearing here and the navy one I made for the videos) shown much closer up and it’s part of the video now. =)

    It looks great! It’s concise and clear. It would be a great resource for teachers and activities facilitators.

      Thank you!! I just added some lesson titles for the final version. =)

    I’d want to learn to make that lei! I did have two things that made me wonder about the class though. Is it traditional to make the lei for someone else? What if I wanted one for myself? I felt kinda selfish not wanting to make one for someone else. The other is the sewing! Yikes! Since you didn’t say I’m guessing it’s hand sewing and not with a machine but still, yikes!

      You can totally make yourself a lei! Little known fact – you don’t actually need a reason to wear a lei. They are frequently given for celebrations or congratulations, but it’s also totally okay to just wear one for the heck of it! It is hand sewing, but it is so easy. That’s what the picot ribbon is for – you just put the needle through line up with every third loop. You have the coordination to bead, so I’m sure you’d be fine. Some beading is way more difficult than this level of sewing! =) Thanks for the feedback – that’s good information to include somewhere in the course description!
