Does anyone know anything about the courses offered by Domestika?

I was thinking about getting one on bookbinding for my DD who started making hand sewn books last March.
Trying to coax myself back into making rather than just looking and dreaming!

No but just had a look. Some look quite good.
Tattoo for beginners anyone?

Kind of...but the ones I've looked at are subtitled in English, unsure offhand of the spoken language.

Most of the ones I glanced at were for Instagram or influencers.

I expressed an interest in one of the surface decoration and dyeing courses and ever since then they are hassling me every day to buy. GO  AWAY!!!!!!  :rant:

@Catllar I went for a look and now it's constant advertising from them. Every YouTube video has an add, the weather Channel is covered in them. Thank goodness they don't have my email.

I hear you both and have decided to keep my distance.

I first looked via a fb sponsored post which then kept popping up for a few days after that. Pretty sure I selected essential cookies only when I went there - mustn't speak too soon though but nothing since.
