Just call Michaels and ask, they will be able to give you all that info better than anyone here can, since sometimes things like that vary from store to store. For instance, I saw our Michaels advertising the course for $15, but the one in the next city over was $35.

(I was busy emptying all the Michael's out of a mold I wanted, haha, I don't usually keep track of their course prices)

Walk in and ask.  Seriously.  This may be a bit "Mama-ish" for you, but the world is yours for the taking...those that inquire, get.  If it's something you are interesting in, find out what you need to know.  I may sound overbearing...I just had a similar conversation with my God Daughter who just graduated from High School so it's still fresh on my mind.  Put yourself out there.  Ask questions.  Do NOT be afraid to be everything you can be.  :-)  The worst thing anyone can say to you is no.  Then make your plan to make that "no" a "yes"!   

 

That said, I took my first Wilton class with a girl who worked there, (16) and a mom with her daughter (10).  As long as you can get yourself to the class and produce the products you need...if I remember right a  few cookies, some cupcakes and a cake, you're in.  You will have to buy the kit.

I do know that you still fill out form on line. Things might all be the same. If  a student of mine is interested, then tell wilton manager, the students has to mention my name, etc.  If hired, i then get a bonus. Havent, had that to happen lately. If you know a teacher, start with her also. hth

 

thx

You have to click the links. I just did it. It tells you a description of the course, as well as the price. Then there is a link to sign up online. They will usually send you a supply list after you sign up.

I actually thought it was really easy, especially since it didn't crash on my ancient iPad. (many websites crash my iPad since it is so old.)

I don,t know what a syllabus book is???? We have class books for each course. I have never read it to the class. I know what i am doing, and make the class a lot of fun. I go way beyond wilton in my knowledge and share some of my expensive knowledge with the students. They love it. I learn from some of them lol!! That is what my classes are all about, sharing and helping each other. They do run specials all the time. You can call michaels and or go on line to know everything about the classes and now you can sign up on line. The syllabus is what they give the students to let them know what to bring to first class. I then go over the rest. Of course the book tells them to.Some of the never read that part. lol!!! they ask me. That is ok. We go over that at the end of each class.
