Affiliate Programme

Have a blog, site or followers? Sell our courses & earn commission.
At the School of Stitched Textiles our mission is to promote textile crafts worldwide. One of the ways we aim to do this is to deliver exceptional education programmes aimed at artists, crafters and makers at all skill levels from beginners to advanced.
 
We have recently established a range of new beginner courses designed to give beginners the solid foundation they need to learn new craft skills. These have been written by our expert tutors who compile and deliver our City & Guilds Accredited courses, and are delivered online through our dedicated Teachables teaching platform ‘The Creative Classroom‘.  Students can study from their own home around other commitments; at their own pace and retain one year access to any courses purchased.
 
As the Uk’s largest distance learning provider we’re confident that our courses offer a solid, knowledgeable and fulfilling foundation for all beginners. We get great feedback from the students who have completed them. We’d now like to offer our affiliates the chance to promote these courses in return for up to 20% commission.
