Class Descriptions and Schedule

 In order to accommodate a variety of student’s busy schedules —- all classes have a weekday morning and evening class time as well as a Saturday class time option.

Cricut                                                                                                                                                                                    Beginning – Advanced: 8-week program

  • All classes are 2.5 hours long.
  • Fee $35.00 per class.                                                                                                                                                                          
  • 2 Cricut Pro Instructors per class (in most cases) to assure individual attention.
  • Minimum Class Size: 6 students. —–we may need to combine and/or reschedule classes that do not meet the minimum class size requirements.
  • Once you enroll in your class type, day & time— you will then have access to class supply list(s) requirements. Before class be sure to check the supply list requirements and please come prepared to class.

Weekly Classes:                                                                                                                                                         Classes increase in difficulty weekly. By the end of this eight-week program—- you’ll be calling yourself a Cricut Pro! The below descriptions of what is covered per class is an approximation, definitely not set in stone —-all classes move at the student’s pace and take on a personality of their own.

Whatever we do not cover in any particular class —we will cover in the next class. Class seven and eight are available for all overage to make sure we cover as much as possible.  If we move at a faster pace than the below class descriptions —then we will pull other projects in our huge repertoire of new cricut techniques —- you will be amazed!
