Weekend Retreats & Workshops



Are you a Brother ScanNCut owner but are, perhaps, afraid to get it out of the box?! Have you been using a Brother ScanNCut for some time, but don't feel you are getting the most out of your state-of-the-art machine as you lack the confidence or the knowledge to use it?

Well, we have great news: this exclusive CraftyMonkies ScanNCut Course is for YOU! Prepared in easy to follow stages, the course will take you from the very beginning, on through the three main functions of this worldwide phenomenon - Cutting, Drawing and Scanning - and beyond as we will also be completing a Q&A session on the two versions of the supporting software, Canvas Workspace, that complement and expand the creative power of the Brother ScanNCut!


No previous experience is required. You can be a total beginner with your machine freshly delivered and you will still be able to follow along! Leapfrog the learning curve and catapult your creative confidence by taking advantage of the wealth of information, tips and insider information that tutor John Bloodworth, aka Gentleman Crafter, has amassed over the six years since the launch of this versatile creative tool in the UK and leave feeling empowered and able to use your machine to its full potential!

Worried that you will forget what you have learned when you walk out of the door? Don't worry, ALL attendees will receive FREE access to John's incredibly popular online course (worth £29.99), plus a download of SVG files as a thank you: WOW! Sign up for the CraftyMonkies ScanNCut Course today!

On another front, in June 2020 we launched the exciting Take 3 Private Member Club which people can sign up to via a Monthly Subscription of just £9.99pcm. Among other things, the Take 3 Private Member Club will feature regular Video Tutorials teaching Techniques & Projects, Bonus Content relevant to the main Techniques & Projects, Competition Giveaways, Monkie Chats with a wide range of talented crafters, a private-access Facebook Group and Q&A sessions with our carefully-selected and highly respected tutors! Be sure to check it out!...
