Beginner Silhouette Class: Getting Started
Did you get a new Silhouette machine for the holidays, and don't know where to start? Or are you thinking about getting one but want to see how it works first? You aren't alone, and our Silhouette 101 class will take the mystery out of the machine and get you well on your way to being a pro!
In this two-hour workshop you'll learn about your machine, the blades, tools, and settings, as well as complete two projects. Students will make a wood sign with a stencil created on the machine as well as a custom tote bag using heat transfer vinyl, a heat press and your design created in class.
***Please bring all tools and mats that came with your machine as well as the machine itself. It would be helpful if the software is already downloaded but is not absolutely necessary. We can walk you through that process as well!
Age and Difficulty:
Beginner adult. No previous experience needed. We will have a class for students in the future, if you are interested in class for younger learners please send us an email.
Scheduling:Silhouette classes are scheduled on an as needed basis. Please be sure you have a good contact phone number and email when you check out. We will contact you to schedule a time once the class is purchased.
