If you wish to craft along, the Hobbycraft Artisan will be using a Cricut Joy machine, the fine point blade and housing, Cricut Joy black pen (supplied with your machine), Cricut Joy card mat,  Cricut Joy princess insert cards and Cricut Joy gold permanent smart vinyl.

Fantastic session. The best hour I’ve spent in a long time! Joey was an excellent tutor and made the session both fun and informative. I made my first ever card within an hour of the course! Definitely signing up for more classes

Juliet Ng Jun 2022


Explained the function of machine and apps clearly.
This course much suitable for the beginner.

Amanda Knights Jun 2022


Thank you Chrissie for being such a great tutor! I learnt a lot from this session.

Chrissie answered all the questions we had and was so friendly and helpful. Her explanations of all the functions in design space were really useful.

As there were only two of us, and we both were using the design space for PC, she showed us that instead of the one for the ipad, which was much more useful.

I will look at other workshops.

Hazel King May 2022


Clear and Christie was very enthusiastic.I love that she gave time at the end to answer questions

Charlotte Crosland May 2022


There was a lot to in course, so Chrissie had to cover content very quickly.

Miss Mackay May 2022


Really good, but time went so fast. Would have been nice to know the format of the lesson so we knew what to expect or even provide information of what I'd like to know before the lesson started.

Thanks to Joey she was very helpful and informative and patient
However, our class went very quickly and I still feel I need more lessons of course you can’t learn all in one day but in that lesson I can honestly say the ‘Joy’ is no longer for me so will invest in a larger machine without a doubt Thanks Joey will book again soon when I’ve got my new machine

Clare Fraser May 2022

D Shattock Feb 2022


Artisan very knowledgable and responsive to questions. Great way to get started with The joy.

Josie Bowler Feb 2022


I was completely new to Cricut before this workshop, having only set up my machine the day before. The workshop was a great introduction to the Cricut Joy and the different projects you can use it for. Chrissie was incredibly helpful and willing to answer our questions throughout. Thank you Chrissie and Hobbycraft!

Jo McSweeney Feb 2022


Absolutely amazing session with Chrissie from the Southampton branch. Introductions were brief and moved on quickly to getting into creating the projects. Chrissie demonstrated a card, water bottle label and sticker in a really clear and very visual way. She explained the key features of the machine (what kerned fonts means and when to include white space and when to search for stencil fonts) and was really interactive with the group. An excellent session and wpuld highly recommend!

Melanie Brown Feb 2022


I really enjoyed the course. I recently bought my Cricut machine and this showed me how to create projects and the scope for bigger experiments. Definitely worth doing

Anne Newton Jan 2022


Really love Chrissie presentation skills this is a must do workshop tovdo for Cricut Joy

Tina Gunston Jan 2022


Absolutely amazing presentation of how to use the Cricut machine.
She was very professional and knowledgable. Answered everyone’s questions.

Cheryl Ellen Jan 2022


Chrissie is amazing in her knowledge. These classes are just what I needed. I’ve done a couple now and I’m feeling much more confident in what I’m doing. I will definitely book some more.
Thank you. Without these sessions I would be so confused with how to use my machines.

Margaret Cook Jan 2022


The tutor was brilliant, really useful and great how questions were answered.
The use of the apps was a little bit fast. Might have been better to have a separate session just on the apps and how they work so as to get a better understanding of the navigation side/ functionality.

Claire Davis Jan 2022


Very informative hour - as a newbie to the cricut Joy it was just what I needed. Chrissie answered all the questions that were asked in the group and was a great help

Fiona Todd Jan 2022


Lots of my newbie questions answered with much patience! Thank you so much for a great workshop!

Kirsty Lee Jan 2022


Thank you Chrissy for a fabulous class… I’ve certainly gained some inspiration to begin my Cricut creations

Molly Lewis Jan 2022


It was my first time with zoomvery informative,but I missed the part how to download,the design appI have the cricut design space,is this the same app Chrissie was talking about?please advise.
[email protected]

Tina Miles Jan 2022


A really great workshop. I bought a Cricut Joy after doing the online workshop for the Cricut Mug Press, with Chrissie. I now know a lot more about using Design Space and how to use my Cricut Joy. Chrissie is so helpful and friendly, she really makes the session enjoyable. I now have the confidence to use my machine and experiment with different materials. I would recommend these workshops to anyone who is new to Cricut.

Pauline Plaisant Jan 2022


Show 3 differents projects
Really interesting, took time to answer question
Thank you for your help

Joanne Crump Jan 2022


Very informative and useful. Christie answered questions well and was knowledge - thank you so much

Lynne Lusby Jan 2022


Very friendly , helpful and knowledgeable.
Went a bit fast for me and did not repeat key, crucial points. Bit difficult to concentrate on a machine, an iPad (for zoom) and iPhone (for design space) all at the same time and I would have preferred to have made notes as well.

Suzanne Brammer Jan 2022


Really enjoyed the class, I learned lots of things and questions I had have been answered. This has been very useful thank you.

Vicki Smith Jan 2022


Great introduction from Chrissie So easy to follow and all questions answered It would be helpful if you could provide a written step by step guide to save or download to help with further projects Will look at other courses Thank you

Linda Ethell Dec 2021


Excellent class, the tutor was knowledgeable, presented well and covered all the basics. She also provided contact details for people to ask any further questions.

Sarah James Dec 2021


As a newbie to Cricut I found this session to be very informative.
I look forward to introducing it to my craft business.
Thank you

Lynn Prandle Dec 2021


Very good. Lots of tips and projects covered in the time. Also time for questions.

Katrina Thomson Nov 2021


Chrissie was informative and friendly. She answered all questions and her passion for he subject was clear!

Christina Menig Nov 2021


The lady was lovely but it was difficult to see what she was doing on her iPad. I don't have a cricut yet and for me she dived into the deep end. I think you need to market this class differently, definitely not for someone who is interested in buying a cricut.
I am sorry to say I did not get much out of this class. It would be lovely if you had a class which showed what you can do with a cricut and only touched lightly on the "how to". The way how this class was described was not in line with the content I find.

Gemma Marriott Nov 2021


Fantastic session. Learnt lots of new skills particularly in relation to dissecting an image on design space and how to create stickers. Definitely going to book a one to one soon. Thanks so much x

Victoria Booth Nov 2021


Really helpful and answered all my questions, really looking forward to creating some new bits

Gill Cole Oct 2021


Really enjoyed the class. Hope it will give me the confidence to play around with it now. I will be having a go at the weekend.

Jan Edwards Oct 2021


Brilliant class thank you. I'm not a complete beginner but I still learned a lot. My questions were answered and I now also know where to go for more help and inspiration. I would now like the option of an Intermediate Guide to Cricut Joy Workshop!

Christina Lapsa Oct 2021


Chrissie was a fab host! She was attentive and kept up with questions as well as getting through different demos in a timely manner. Clearly very knowledgable and passionate!

Zana Atkins Oct 2021


Cristina was very fun, informative and great at explaining everything, totally understand how to use the machine now

Rachael Barber Sep 2021


Informative and enjoyable. Easy to ask questions. A good intro to the Cricut Joy machine.

Celia Potter Sep 2021


Learnt some good tips! I use an iPad for design space but unfortunately when Crissie was using her iPad to demonstrate it was very difficult to see what was actually on her screen! I’m reasonably confident in what I’m doing as I also have a Maker but I can imagine for people not knowing what they’re doing or who are looking into Cricut before purchasing that could be a little off putting although I appreciate that was beyond her control!

Lesley Hall Sep 2021


Chrissie was very clear with her explaining and I learnt a lot in the hour thank you

Claire Lamont Aug 2021


Excellent online class for Cricut joy. Chrissie was lovely, no question too silly and lots of tips. Definitely recommend

Nickie Radbourne Aug 2021


Really helpful, very friendly and knowledgeable artisan and I definitely came away with some useful info!

Julia Stait Aug 2021


Great session, Chrissie is really good at teaching Cricut and is very knowledgeable about how to make the most of the machine

Laura Smith Aug 2021


Chrissy was very knowledgeable and friendly and got straight to the point giving us a lot of information in the hour we spent together
