Holding Classes - How Much Leeway

Jeanne Walsh
Hi everyone.  Looking for some feedback.

I hold a monthly card class where my customers make three cards.  I try to make at least two of the cards as versatile as possible, i.e., a Congratulations card could become a Happy Birthday card with just a change of the greeting or sentiment.  However, there are times that I would prefer not to change the versatility of the card and have them make it exactly as I designed it.  

It's hard to say no when I have the complete stamp set at class as well as a few general stamps from Paper Pumpkin kits that they could use.

Accommodating them has not brought me any large and/or repeated sales but they do return to my class every month.

Thoughts?

First, I'm assuming that  you're being paid for this card class and that it's bringing  you joy to do it.  If not, then that's the place to look at making changes - I know if you're feeling down on not making enough there, then other things like accommodating requests can be the straw that breaks the camels' back.

 

Second, if it's easy enough to accommodate - letting them use other stamps from the same set, then by all means do it.   But if it's not easy, for example,  you're having to locate stamps that fit in the same size layer, etc.  Then just state, "You're welcome to make changes based on what I've got on the table".  This allows them to make changes (some people just don't like to do things exactly like someone else) without inconveniencing you.

 

I feel it's better to let them make minor changes (without causing you any additional work) and to have them enjoy their time at the class, than being rigid and potentially losing them for the class.

 

My two cents!

In reply to this post by Jeanne Walsh

I do 4 classes a month on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday's of the month. One from 9:30-noon and 1:00-3:30 pm. 

I charge $15.00 for 4 cards. I only allow up to 10 people in each of the classes. Morning class is always full. Afternoon class varies from 2 to 10 people. 

One card will be a new technique or fold and the other 3 cards are now as involved. 

All of the attendees must have some experience in card making. I ask them to bring with them liquid glue, double sided adhesive, glue dots, scissors, and a bone folder. 

If I get interest from someone who is new to stamping, I can schedule a special class on a different day for beginners. 

I have had a good success with orders from these attendees drawing anywhere from $500 to $2,500 in a quarterly sales. 

I had someone from the class sign up under me  At this point she is doing as a hobby 

Would be happy to share more information on how I instruct these classes if you are interested.

I agree with this point too:e, "You're welcome to make changes based on what I've got on the table".  This allows them to make changes (some people just don't like to do things exactly like someone else) without inconveniencing you.

I always say: you are welcome to change up the projects to fit your needs or wants. Just pick from whatever is on the table.

There have been times I've gone digging for a certain stamp, but not often.

Best of luck, Nola

I feel that since you spent the time to design a card that they should make the card you designed for them. If it's just a matter of using a different sentiment in the stamp set or another stamp set you have handy then let them make that choice but I would not tell them they have the option to change the card. I think that could result in you losing control of the class( which is also time).
My two cents.

Re: SU!: Holding Classes - How Much Leeway

Robin Messenheimer

If I'm teaching a technique or a special fold, I give specific instructions and expect them to follow my steps to learn the technique/fold, etc. But I also want them to go home with something they'll like and use. Whenever possible, I give them sentiment options. For example, I'll use Terny Tiny Wishes and let them use whatever fits the area I've chosen. But with sets that have special sentiments or sets of sentiments, that's what they get to use. Example, the Lemon bundle. I make sure they get to be creative, but also get to be successful in making something they're pleased to show off.

I keep Teeny Tiny Wishes on hand, and tell them they can sub anything with it. It has been working so far and I have sold some of those sets.

I too hold monthly classes. I always give you class members to opportunity to change the sentiment if they need something other than my intend purpose. I will bring other sentiments that will fit into the space I have designed. I don't feel that I am loosing control, and it keeps them coming back because they are not getting frustrated because they may need a birthday card when I have designed a sympathy card for example.

I keep Teeny Tiny Wishes on hand, and tell them they can sub anything with it. It has been working so far and I have sold some of those sets.

Hi everyone. Looking for some feedback.

I hold a monthly card class where my customers make three cards. I try to make at least two of the cards as versatile as possible, i.e., a Congratulations card could become a Happy Birthday card with just a change of the greeting or sentiment. However, there are times that I would prefer not to change the versatility of the card and have them make it exactly as I designed it.

It's hard to say no when I have the complete stamp set at class as well as a few general stamps from Paper Pumpkin kits that they could use.

Accommodating them has not brought me any large and/or repeated sales but they do return to my class every month.

Thoughts?
