Baby Casts- Business Start- up Training Course

My intensive two day course focuses on 3D Casting of baby's hands and feet but also includes 2D outprint baby print training.
You will have hands- on experience and you will cast a quality professional finished product which includes a sample for you to take away with you.

The training also introduces you to marketing, social media, pricing, profit margins, getting supplies, customer care......it really does cover everything to to jump- start your business and to avoid the common problems people face.

It is perfect for those who have never done casting (or want to improve their technique) and are considering starting out in business.

Review- (Olivia 2018) Baby casts and Print training.
I have just completed a training course with Laura and it was absolutely brilliant!
Laura packed the course full of information and practical hands on experience. I felt like she really covered everything and made sure I knew exactly how to get started when at home. It was fantastic to learn from someone who does casting/ prints as their day to day job as Laura told me not only how to do the craft but the all problems I may encounter and how to troubleshoot them. She was also happy to share a lot of personal experience of how she had got her business up and running and perfected her craft.
Laura recommended suppliers, people to work with and others online to help me get my business off the ground. She also gave me a complete list of everything I might need and what she had personally found worked best for her.
I am so glad I chose to do my training with Laura. She was so welcoming and informative and I couldn’t recommend her enough to anyone wanting to start their own casting business.

Review- (Clare 2017)
I very recently attended one of Laura's training days.
I am very new in this industry and was not sure what to expect.
Laura was very welcoming and put me at ease immediately. She was very informative and shared a huge amount of knowledge and advice throughout the day.
I wouldn't hesitate in coming back to Laura for further training at a later date.
Thank you Laura
