  • Beginner classes ideas

    Hoping to pick some brains here, I'm going to be running some beginner card making classes soon and wondered what kind of things to cover - I want to get the attendees interested and engrossed without scaring them away with anything too technical. Was thinking I could do one class on heat embossing and possibly stamping (or whould that be better as 2 seperate classes?) but what other areas would you suggest?

    Likely to have only 4-6 in a class and each session probably 1.5 - 2 hours long

    Ta ver muchly in advance

    I would definatly say stamping and embossing as it's great fun for us beginners and very quick easy results.
    I personally would love to get some help and inspiration with pop-up cards and cards that do things as I'm starting to find basic A6 a bit boring now lol.
    I've been having a go at decoupage for the first time this evening and I'm really pleased with how they've worked out. If I can do it anyone can!
    How about a lesson using only free items that they have to salvage from items they would have thrown away nomally?
    I wish there were classes near me, I could do with a few pointers. I hope they go well for you. x

        Hi Natty,

        Sorry I can't help but thought I would say "aren't you busy enough with the new shop" you must be mad - are you craming 25 hours into a day somehow.

        Only kidding good luck with it.
