It’s been lovely to see more projects being uploaded to my jewellery video classes since the launch of the Summer School competition! Remember that the person who uploads the most projects in my classes between Wednesday 26th July and Sunday 3rd September will win a £75 voucher to spend on texture sheets for the rolling mill and metal clay and jewellery tutorial ebooks in my Etsy Store.
I promised you a photo tutorial on how to upload your project to the classes. It really is easy to do – if you can post a photo to Facebook you can do this! Ready?
1. Below the video screen you will see four options for further information. The one you’re currently seeing is in blue. Click on ‘Your Project’ to see the class prject details. You can also download the equipment lists, tips sheets and templates in this section of the class.
2. Scroll down and click on ‘create a project’.
3. Start by choosing a photo for your title. 1920 by 1080 pixels works best, but as you’ll see in the next photo you can crop a larger photo.
4. Moving the slider allows you to crop your image if you wish.
5. Once you’re got your cover image sorted add a title and a description of your project. You don’t need to write much, but perhaps think about: what you like best about it? Was there a part you found a challenge? What new tips have you learnt? How did you adapt the design?
6. You can add in extra photos, hyperlinks to other webpages and even videos.
7. Click on publish to finish.
8. You can share your project on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest at the click of a button if you wish if you’ve linked your social media accounts to Skillshare.
9. You can edit your project at any time – add a photo of a new piece of jewellery when you make it!
It’s as quick and simple as that! Your projects will appear on your profile page and other students enrolled on the class will be notified that there’s a new project for them to admire. I will get a message too and I always comment as soon as I can! Do remember that to enter the competition you have to comment on a fellow student’s project.
I’m looking forward to seeing your lovely creations!
