Intro to Vinyl is a hands-on class series designed to introduce students to the fascinating art of designing, creating, and applying vinyl decals. Whether you're a crafting enthusiast or a complete beginner, this class is perfect for unleashing your creativity and producing eye-catching projects.
Throughout the course, our experienced instructor will guide you through the fundamental techniques of working with vinyl. You'll learn how to use design software to create unique and personalized decals, explore different vinyl types, and gain insights into proper application methods.
The class curriculum is designed to ensure that every student gets to explore their skills through three exciting projects. First, you'll create an adhesive decal, allowing you to practice the art of precision cutting and application on various surfaces. Next, you'll dive into creating a customized tumbler, learning the art of layering vinyl to produce stunning and intricate designs on a 3D surface. Finally, you'll craft a stylish canvas zipper pouch, combining both aesthetic appeal and practical functionality.
Students will also have the option to create their own custom project using the skills they’ve gained during the class.
