How To Get A Free Skillshare Account

Watch our video describing, step-by-step, how to create a free account at Skillshare.

Why would you want to do that?

Well, they don’t publicise it much, but Skillshare have about 18,000 classes in total, of which about 1,500 are totally free to watch, all you have to do is get a free account.

When you go through the sign-up process, Skillshare will naturally offer you a premium account, where you get access to all 18,000 classes. However, if you stop the sign-up process at a specific point, you’ve created a free account and can take the free classes. In the video I also show you how to find the free classes.


Teachers on Skillshare can create “free access links” to their premium classes, which you can use with your free Skillshare account, so if you see a premium class you’d really like to take, it may be worth asking the teacher if you can have a free access link.

Alternatively, you can visit our Free Skillshare Classes group on Facebook where we post several free links each day to Skillshare premium classes.
