Technical Skills

Hello, we are the Technical Skills team at Crisis SkyIight Croydon.  On this page you will find a varied selection of online courses, teaching tutorials and resources to help you to continue to learn and develop your technical skills. From bespoke design briefs learning how to construct cardboard ‘sketch’ models, to posting out loom kits and videos of how to weave your own cushion panels. There will be tips, tutorials and videos for model-making, carpentry and decorating as well as access to external free courses.

Alongside this, we will include useful video links, access to online design and craft magazine resources as well as live projects set by top design companies.
