Hi, i teach wilton at michaes, and they don,t give anything away. First course, you have to bring in cookies, buy a can of icing(i show in class how to make icing and ice a cake in the class.) I show all that i need to for first class and then tell them what to bring , etc. for second class. It is in the books that we give out first class. They will give you a syllabus when you sign up. You have to go to store and sign up and pay. Then you will know everything to bring to first class. I teach 14 and older. If someone is 12-13, their mom or some adult has to sign up also. That is michaels rule and wiltons. I am not going to teach anyone without a receipt. I get paid for who i teach on first night of class. Some moms try that and then they are getting all my info free. I make sure everyone is counted for on sign up sheet ,etc. We always have a fun class. I bring extra stuff always so my classes go good. I enjoy all that i do with the students. I make sure the class is fun and informative. I tell them the first night , i don,t know everything(not a know it all) but i know a lot. Been decorating for 18 yrs. and paid a lot of money to take lots of classes and also ices convention each year. Some people(i don,t like that) sign up right before class time and they are the ones that don,t have a thing in their hands to work with. I use to share everything with these people, but not anymore. Anyone should know not to go to any type of class empty handed. lol!!! I hope you enjoy if you sign up. WE all have fun and the students make new friends. That is how i love it to be. hth If you need more info , please let me know.
