It’s hard to believe the year is half over. Where has the time gone? My son had graduated from Middle School, he’s well into football practice with his high school, which by the way I am still having a hard time saying “his high school” or referring to him in a high school setting… just yesterday he was walking into Kindergarten and terrified to tell me goodbye. Enough about me and my reminiscing though and on to the good stuff!
July classes start next Sunday which is July 5th at Michaels. Class registrations are half off and $22.50 through July 4th. You can register online or in person at the store with Michaels directly. If you are interested in taking Course 4 let me nicely but strongly using my best polite teacher voice… Course 4 is going to be retiring soon. If you want to take it, please don’t delay. I can’t give you a date because it could be in a couple of months or it could be spring. It just depends on how long it takes for the current stock of the Course 4 kits to sell out that are in our distribution center. There will not be a revision to this course or any new course taking its place so when it’s gone it’s gone through Michaels.
In the private class front there’s a lot going on. Most of all I have four great new private classes ready for registrations. They are…
4 Week Advanced Gum Paste Flowers
Another great thing that I am now doing with all fondant and gum paste classes is providing the supplies for the class. The cutters, tools and “hardware” used will not be available for you to take home though, for now while I am getting started they will be only for class use. The fondant and gum paste will also be provided and you can take your finished flowers home. If you wish to bring your own supplies instead of borrowing mine, that is absolutely ok and it is encouraged if you prefer to.
The price of class is set to include the cost of the supplies and for a 2 hour class. I know for many it seems a bit pricey but please know that I have kept the pricing as low as I possibly can to still be able to make a profit, and at least a living wage teaching the class. Like you, I have a family to feed, mortgage to pay, and car to gas up.
There are tons of more classes coming soon and unfortunately it’s a HUGE job to get class curriculum written and timed to fit into a 2 hour class so it’s a bit slow going for me. If there is something specific you would like and don’t see listed please let me know. Chances are I have something for it at least in rough draft version that I can teach for you.
What type of classes do I offer… Basic Candy Making, Buttercream, Royal Icing, Fondant & Gum Paste, Cookie Decorating are my basic classes but I’m always up to teaching something else if you need it.
I hope to see you in a class soon!
