We’re taking orders for Decembers We Make Collective kit! This one is very special to me, not only because it’s our second kit (which means we made it past the first one!!) but also because of what I hope to get out from it. My goal is to create a learning experience in each kit for every subscriber and that is exactly what I want to personally get from these supplies as well. Now I’m not a complete novice – I’ve done a little hand lettering in the past, but I have a lot to learn to be confident with my skills. I’m really looking forward to having a motivator for practicing and honing my technique and I hope that by noting how and what I’m learn as I go it will help to show the process of how to develop your skills over time as well.
As well as our usual group of amazing contributors we’re asking for volunteer DIYers to create tutorials for this kit too! We want to showcase your skills and talent in hand lettering. We’re looking for anyone with experience in calligraphy or brush lettering as well as in creating tutorials or taking quality photos of their work. We will be here holding your hand and guiding you through the process, so if you think you could potentially create a tutorial then don’t worry about going it alone!
So what’s in it for you?
You will of course get the kit for free! That comes with access to all of the tutorials and members only areas. We will be pinning your projects, blog posts and online shop to our We Make Collective Collaborators Pinterest board that goes out to our 600,000+ followers. We will also feature you right here on Fall For DIY, send your links out to our email subscribers, and highlight your business/blog in a sidebar ad. And to top it off you’ll have your very own contributor page with all your links and social media accounts over on We Make Collective. To be honest we just want to show you off at every opportunity!
Although this is an unpaid position we hope that it’s perfect for someone wanting to get involved with the Collective, but unable to financially at the moment. Of course we would love to pay all of our contributors. We’re working hard to reach a point where this is viable and we can reach out. Until then we’re hoping that we can help to promote you in exchange for sharing your skills with us.
If you’re interested in applying to contribute then pop us an email over at firstname.lastname@example.org before October 31st with links to your work and we will get in touch soon!
