2017 - Denver, Colorado - Workshops

Whether you have never touched a paper trimmer or you are the Queen of the Crop, Stamp & Scrapbook Expo has a workshop for you. We offer workshops for everyone from brave beginners to the most advanced paper crafters and everyone in between.

Please review the workshop description as it will have specific items that will be required for your class. These general items may also be beneficial to have on hand, although not all of the items will be used in every workshop: 12 x 12 paper trimmer, scissors, hole punch, paper piercer, distressing ink pad, and a variety of adhesives such as glue dots, liquid adhesive, tape runner, foam dots. Baby wipes are also nice for your convenience.

The fine print:

Seats in the workshop rooms are for guests who have purchased a ticket to attend that particular workshop. Only those guests who have a paid workshop ticket for that particular workshop may be in the room at the time the workshop begins. Unfortunately we do not allow any persons to stand in on or sit in the workshop rooms unless they have a paid ticket to that workshop (including children.) Babes in arms are the only exception.Missed workshops are not refundable.

You must attend the workshop to receive the workshop kit. Kits are exclusive to the workshop and are not sold outside the classroom. You may inquire with the instructor between workshops or at the end of their workshop day to request a kit. Sometimes, the kits are not relevant without the instruction in the class. Often instructors do not have kits in their booths to distribute. It is between you and the instructor to receive a kit without the actual teaching time included.
