Cameo 101: Getting Started

  • niche creative studio 4706 Common Street Lake Charles, LA, 70607 United States (map)

Have a silhouette cameo still sitting in the box? Have you taken it out and are confused as to what to do next? This class will teach you how to use the Cameo program! The Silhouette Cameo is the ultimate DIY and hobby machine. 

For this class, we will navigate the program, giving you a good foundation to build your skills and start tackling projects.  We will create two monograms in this class using both heat transfer vinyl and adhesive vinyl, all while covering all the basics including but not limited to building fonts, tracing items, making your own files, rotating and resizing, blade settings and more. Cameos may be shared by registered attendees, and projects will be cut out at the same time.

**If you have not downloaded or updated your software, please do so before class or come early 30 minutes early for our instructor to assist you.
