Join us for a free Cricut workshop

August 31, 2021 by Cricut

We know when it comes to cranking out a new project, getting started is the hardest part.


Whether your Cricut machine still has that fresh-out-of-the-box sheen or you’ve made a few cuts and are stumped on what to do next, a Cricut Workshop is the perfect way to grow your skills and confidence.

You’ve got the inspiration, materials, and tools — now get expert-led guidance on putting it all to use to make the projects you’ve been dreaming about.

Getting started with Cricut 101

Each Cricut Workshop is a real-time, interactive learning session led by an official Cricut coach with one goal in mind: to help you start (and keep!) making. Alongside fellow Cricut newbies, you’ll receive the support of Cricut experts eager to help you bring your vision to life. 

What you’ll learn 

  • Design Space, the design app that powers every Cricut machine 
  • How to cut a vinyl sticker using your machine 
  • Skills to keep cutting with confidence 

What you’ll need 

On top of showing up ready to learn and ask our experts anything, you’ll want to prepare a few supplies:  

  • Your pre-activated Cricut Explore or Maker (meaning you’ve already connected and registered your machine online and created your Design Space account) 
  • A computer or iPad to run Design Space 
  • Cricut vinyl and transfer tape 
  • Cricut Light Grip cutting mat (or Smart Materials if you’re using a Maker 3 or Explore 3) 
  • Scraper (you can even use a credit card!) 
  • A tumbler/water bottle (optional) 

How to sign up

  • Check the schedule below 
  • Click the date you want to register 
  • Follow the prompts to complete the registration 
  • Check your email for confirmation and add the date to your calendar 

It’s worth knowing ahead of time that our workshops are hosted via the Zoom app. If you’ve never used Zoom, don’t worry — it doesn’t take long to download and install. And, if you’ve graduated from making basic vinyl stickers but still want to craft along with us and your fellow Cricut members, check out our new Cricut 102 Workshop lineup.

More projects to make along with us 

We’re always eager to hear what members want to make but are a little hesitant to try solo. With that in mind, we’re designing intermediate/advanced level workshops to walk you through the projects you’ve been building the skills for but can’t yet execute on your own. You’ll get friendly expert guidance and an opportunity to ask questions and learn with a virtual community of crafters just like you.
