It’s not easy to find a local creative event in your area. However, this article will help answer the question: where are the gift basket classes?
What’s out there
Gift basket classes grow in popularity as this creative skill maintains its appeal.
Courses may be demonstration only where the teacher talks and shows you how to make a gift basket. Another type of class is participatory where you design a gift basket to take home.
Either option is beneficial because you attend the class in-person and can speak face to face with the teacher and other students who have mutual interests.
If you don’t live close to a major metropolitan area in the U.S. (New York, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles) or another part of the world (London, Paris, Brussels, Toronto, Mexico City), finding a gift basket class may not be so easy.
There are people in every area of the world who know all about gift baskets because they make them each day. However, after they know how to start making and selling gift baskets doesn’t mean that they are ready to share their secrets.
Another dilemma in finding a gift basket class is the fact that everyone isn’t willing to teach or isn’t a good candidate to teach.
If the most-celebrated designer is not a gifted communicator, trying to teach a gift basket class will not be a rewarding experience for her or you.
The most-obvious and accessible places to find an in-person class is at adult schools. You have to do some digging to find all of the schools in your area and hopefully find an available event.
Adult schools are listed online usually as part of each city’s educational listings. Before starting your search, make a chart to write the following:
- School’s name
- Telephone number
- Website address
- Class availability (do they offer one?)
The chart ensures that you document your findings and that you don’t check the same listing twice.
If calling each each school, ask:
- To receive a brochure
- If the school has a website (if you cannot find it online)
- If there is an in-person or online gift basket class
Other courses to consider
Gift basket classes teach the art of designing, but don’t overlook other helpful courses.
Flower arranging is one creative option. Bookkeeping aids you to spend money wisely and track costs. Financial management focuses on building wealth as you build your hobby or business.
Many adult schools and educational learning centers offer the class I teach, Start Your Own Gift Basket Business. Thousands of creative people like you have enrolled in this and other classes available online.
In my class you receive 12 lessons in six weeks. The good news is that you have access to me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ask anything you want to customize the course to fit your customers, products, and the environment where you make and sell gift baskets.
It would be wonderful to meet you in person and show you everything about gift baskets face to face, but since that’s not possible, the alternative for enrolling online is:
- Be at home (no traveling!)
- Wear pajamas or other clothing (whatever you wish!)
- Have the course content delivered to your computer or electronic device (how convenient!), and
- Let me help you to achieve your dreams (now that’s service!)
The first lesson is free to try, so if you cannot find an in-person gift basket class, Start Your Own Gift Basket Business is a great option, and it’s also terrific if you want to start a hobby before considering a business.
If you’re still wondering where are the gift basket classes…
Try not to allow the lack of an in-person class stop or sway you from starting. Everything you want or need for gift basket making and selling will not be local, and that fact will help you be a successful designer.
