IMAGINE Education

One focus of IMAGINE Crafts for 2015 is to expand the role of education to both our wholesale accounts and retail customers. This commitment on education has two important factors:

  1. showing how to use our amazing line of diverse products in a variety of different applications
  2. sharing with you the latest and greatest techniques that use our products

IMAGINE Crafts offers a wealth of online resources for using our products, including general product information and project ideas. But we also realize that sometimes nothing beats that hands on experience of learning from an instructor in real time, getting your hands all inked up leaving class with a completed project.

We’d like to share with you some of our upcoming classes being offered around the country. We invite you to be a part of one of these classes if in your local area and see why our classes are so popular!

One thought on “IMAGINE Education

  1. I would love to be able to attend a class with Imagine Crafts products but none are being offered any where near me and since I don’t get out of the house that is an impossible dream! I will have to live vicariously through others and videos!
