Over the years, YouTube has provided a platform for people to upload videos on anything from cute cats to pranks they have played on their friends.

However, YouTube is also home to those who wish to share their skills with the wider world.

Many of the site's users upload tutorial videos so that other users can follow them and hopefully learn a new skill.

Gone are the days of DIY projects where you have to pay out for an expensive course or buy a book and trawl through pages of step-by-step instructions. Tutorial videos are often helpful, incredibly informative, and able to be accessed in the time it takes you to type into a search engine.
