Planning Classes





New ‘Try it!’ Tag

This is a new tag we are creating to highlight the many ways the community can jump in and participate in our classes.

Here are the guidelines:

Try it! Classes, launching August 2021 

  • The idea behind this concept is to offer more opportunities for individuals to jump in and try a class that is designed for beginners, with a short time commitment – and to communicate with the community that we are accessible and welcoming to newcomers!  
  • 2-4 hour one-day classes in all studios 
  • Beginner level, accessible to all. 
  • Project-based, students will leave with something they’ve created.  
  • Pricing is based on the course calculator.  
  • Title format is ‘Try it!’ followed by the name of the class. Example: ‘Try it! Customized Pendant Necklace.’  
  • We will have a special icon/graphic to reinforce the concept.  
  • We are creating an additional tag in Wild Apricot with a special calendar view. 
  • We will have initial marketing splash in September to launch this concept.
  • We’d like to work up to studios offering two of these classes per month by the end of 2021.
