A dedicated web platform aims to foster communities for crafts, hobbies and apprenticeship.
HeyKiki aims to ensure that hands-on craftsmanship and the age old practice of apprenticeship doesn’t miss out on the connective benefits that the Internet affords the more intellectual knowledge sharing practices.
Functioning as an online hub for practices similar to Skillshare, it provides a platform where people can search for crafts they wish to master with a useful localisation engine feature and an intuitive search interface. In addition, people can post classes which they wish to teach.
This streamlined online categorisation of ‘learn’ ‘practice’ or ‘teach’ on Heykiki hopes to facilitate the process of community building that naturally flourishes around people who want to learn new things, keep up their practice of old hobbies or teach existing skills to budding novices.
