I have decided to start teaching some classes for card making - I was wondering as a consumer (not a crafter) how much would you be willing to pay for a class? How long would you expect to be there? And how much would you expect to leave with (number of cards, new techniques, etc.)

I'm trying to remember....

We had this one gal who did a "stamp camp" every few months. Not sure what the charge was, maybe $20 or $25?? And we did around 4 - 5 projects/cards with different techniques.

ETA: that was several years ago, so I'm sure the pricing would be a little more....

If you are looking at people new to card making I would expect the class go for 2 hours and charge about $20 - $25 with all supplies included. Maybe about 4 cards with a couple of easy techniques.

If you are looking at classes for people who have the basics and wanting to learn about harder techniques, I would charge $10 - $15 for the tuition. The participants would need to bring a basic kit, eg trimmer, glues, scissors, pens etc. You would supply the tools and items needed for any new technique but the participants would purchase the supplies eg paper and embellies that they use on the day. Class time still around 2 hours.

The last card-making class I went to was 3 years ago in Singapore. It cost S$35 and was 4 hours long.

We came away with 6 cards mostly completed, and used basic techniques but combined in a very creative way. For example we plaited baker's twine into a cord to wrap round one card to seal it, one was a basic front which opened into a pop-up card inside, and one used the new (then) technique of winding strips to make a 3D flower. No good for mailing, that one!

That class included a pack of Basic Grey chipboard shapes, a few of the Eskimo Kisses papers and matching card-stock. It was held in a store, so we also got spot prizes and a pile of discount vouchers. I loved it.

I charge $20 for a two to three hour class. This includes product.

For card classes we usually get 4 done. for layouts usually two

I go to a SU one from time to time, I think it's $25 and we make ten cards. It takes about three hours. You don't get anything extra (she has everything pre-cut, you do your own embossing, stamping, etc.) But you walk away with 10 completely finished cards.
