How Classes Work

Learn from any device

Our classes are available on your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone, so you can learn at home or on the go.

Track your progress

Track what you’ve learned. After you complete each lesson, you can see all that you’ve done and what's left.

Learn at your own pace

Busy schedule? We understand. That's why all of our lessons can be taken at a time that works for you.

1. Pick a class

Studio Calico partners with industry experts to bring you classes that explore on trend projects and techniques. New classes are released throughout the year – you're sure to find one that will help you take your creativity further.

2. Start learning

Check the class schedule to find out when lessons will be released, or dive right in on a self-paced class. Our instructors teach via a mix of video, text, and photos – so you can see their skills in action, but easily refresh yourself on the main points and study the details on their projects.

3. Connect with classmates

Our classes are about more than just learning; they're a way for you to connect with fellow creatives for inspiration, guidance, and support. Class message boards and lesson discussions help you interact and stay in touch.

4. Share what you learned

We'd love to see your take on what you've learned! Show off your new skills by sharing your work in the class gallery, and take a look at your classmates' work for even more inspiration.

  4. When are new classes announced?

    Our classes are announced on the 1st or 15th of the month. For up to date information, make sure you are on our newsletter list. We also announce our new classes on the Studio Calico Blog.

  5. Will I receive a class kit when I sign up for a class?

    Some of our classes include a bonus mini kit or stamp set that will ship free to our students, no matter where they are. These bonus products have limited availability, so it's best to enroll early to guarantee that you'll receive one and that it gets to you before the class begins. The class registration page will let you know when a bonus product has sold out.

  6. When does enrollment close on a Studio Calico class?

    Enrollment for most classes will be open for one month. For example, if a class is released on November 15th, it will be open for enrollment until December 15th. As always, please check the class description for more information on each specific class.

  7. How can I tell the difference between self-paced and scheduled release classes?

    We release a mix of self-paced and teacher led classes throughout the year. Both the class sign up page and the “schedule” tab within the classroom will give you information on when you’ll have access to the lessons.

  8. How do I enroll in a class?

    From the class sign up page, click “add to cart” on any class you’re interested in. Complete your checkout, and you’ll immediately have access to the classroom under “My Classes” in your dashboard.

  9. Can I take a lesson more than once?

    Yes, you can! You can go back and view any of your class lessons at any time.

  10. How do I access my class message board?

    You’ll find the class message board on the main classroom page – just click on the “forum” icon.
