3D Casting Training Workshop

 
3D Casting Training Workshop

"The best people to work for are me, myself and I”

3D Training Workshop

Currently 3D Training Workshops are one on one and the costs are :--

One and half day workshop - £750

Two day workshop - £1000  

Please note ALL training takes place in Poole - Dorset.  Training days are flexible to try and fit in with your schedule where possible.

So why choose Precious Memories?  Running this business now for 15 years I have perfected the art and can honestly say that I love nothing more than sharing my experience with those who attend the training.  Having trained people in the UK and also overseas such as India and Germany this further highlights just how far people are prepared to travel to ensure they are guaranteed an exceptional workshop to learn to art of 3d casting. 

Unlike other companies, Precious Memories offers casts in luxury materials which include, solid bronze, lead crystal glass and hallmarked sterling silver.  When you attend the training workshop you will be trained to create casts in plaster which can then be sent to Glenda in Poole. Glenda can then create them into the luxury product for your client and return them back to you.  Being part of this process is quite unique and it means that you will have the edge to your competitors from the start.

Furthermore, Precious Memories business vision remains well and truly focussed.  Over the years there has been a shift with some casting companies offering both the services of 3D casting but also the DIY kits to customers.  Precious Memories  firmly believe this sends out a very mixed message about the art of 3D Castings.  Precious Memories does not sell the kits and has no intention of doing and will remain offering high quality products matched with a high quality service to its customers.

Other companies also group training however, as each person learns differently Precious Memories wants to ensure that you make full use of your time on the training course and therefore will remain offering a one to one service.  Over the years the same few questions have been raised over and over which I have highlighted below:-

Question 1 - Do you offer training online?  In short, no.  Call me old fashioned, but would you read a book to learn how to ride a bike?  That is my view on learning the art of 3D Casting too!  You need to be face to face with the parent, baby and have hands on experience of using and understanding the materials too.  The first impression you create with a client is really key and you can't learn how to do this online.

Question 2 - Why do you not do the training in a day?  In all the years I have trained, everyone has given the same feedback.  I go into a huge amount of in-depth detail on do and dont's that I have personally experienced - something you can't learn online, as well as having the opportunity to cast a baby.  I try to be flexible and understand not everyone can afford two days, so I offer two options.  1 1/2 days or 2 days.  .  Precious Memories also covers all the key aspects associated with your business, such as the ever increasing impact of social media, marketing, insurance and health and safety.  

Question 3 - Why are your kits more expensive than others?  There is absolutely no pressure to buy them at all, but you do get alot for your money.  25kg of plaster and 25 bags of alginate - giving you ample opportunity to practice, perfect and create LOTS of casts.  Also included in the kit is an example frame.  Again, Precious Memories could sell these however, why pay additional shipping costs, have time constraints and run the risk of the frame being damaged when being shipped, when you may have a fabulous framer in your area. 

Question 4 - What support is given once training has been completed?  Again, feedback from those who have completed the training have said that the aftercare offered is worth the money in itself.  I am firm believer that once you leave the studio, if at any point you need help with anything covered in the training support will be given - no strings attached!  

As a mum myself, I am so thankful that i have not missed out on anything with my girls and have grown a business which now allows other parents to do exactly the same from for the comfort of their own home both here in the UK and overseas.  Finding a job around a family in today's society is not always easy.  With the rise of childcare costs many parents are often left in a dilemma - as returning to work for some means they hardly earn anything.  For many who have attended training they have been looking for a lifestyle change.  Wanting time with their family but also earning money and gaining some financial independence too.  This is exactly what this training course will do for you.  Gone are the days when you miss your child's sports day at school or you have to call feel guilty sending your child into school when they are feeling unwell because you are being made to feel guilty at work.  Learning the craft of 3D Keepsakes is not only a new craft but a new start for you and your family and if you don't just have to take my word for it - hear why some of the people I have trained think.

Leanne – Middlesborough

Leanne underwent two days of training for the 3D Casts in 2015 and now runs her own very successful studio as an affiliate of Precious Memories. Here is what she had to say about the training she received:-

“Having recently I attended a two day 3D casting course with Precious Memories founder Glenda Hickmott at her studio in Poole, Dorset I can quite honestly say it was an exceptional two days.

Glenda covered each process in great detail and also happily provided details of her knowledge having run her own company for 15 years. I had the opportunity to take moulds on two baby's which gave me the hands-on experience you can’t get with online training, giving me the confidence to meet my own clients in the future.

I know there are cheaper courses available, and I did look at these, but before I made my choice to attend the training with Glenda. She shows you all the tricks of the trade that these cheaper course just can’t show in the time they allow, or show via video. I did my research and spoke to someone who Glenda had recently trained and she also was very complimentary of Glenda and content of the course.

Glenda is very keen for you to start earning money as soon as you can and gives you some additional features other training courses don’t. I can offer my clients high end 3D Casts eg, Hallmarked Sterling Silver as well as the jewellery and I receive money for this which is a great additional earner for my new business. Since my return home, whenever I have had a question Glenda has kept her promise and been in touch, so I do not feel like I am on my own. I am also very keen to learn more skills in particular 2D Impressions and the belly bump castings, but Glenda has recommended I build on my business first and then return at a later date, which makes complete sense.

 I can honestly say it was excellent value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending Glenda's 3D training to anyone else”.

Earn money working with children and pets

They say don't work with children and pets - rubbish!  I love both and this is what i do every day - it's great fun and so rewarding and you could be doing the same.

My business is based on professionalism, quality and outstanding customer service. I will pass these skills onto you to ensure that you build your own business in your own local area, delivering the superior quality and customer service that will make you stand out from the crowd.  I also focus on making sure you make as many mistakes as you can when you come along to the training days, so when you return home you know how to solve each and every one of them.

 

In summary costs are:-

One and a half day workshop (9.00 till 3.00) (9.00 till 12.00) £750 and includes a baby model on each day and beverages.  Lunch provided on day one.

Two Day workshop -  (9.00 till 3.00 both days) £1000 and includes more models, than the 1 1/2 day workshop all beverages and lunch.

Since i began offering training I have asked everyone who has attended the whether they think the training could be done in one day and everyone agrees that they need two days however, I do offer the option of 1 1/2 days as not everyone can afford to pay £1000.  Whilst the focus is on learning to master creating 3D Casts, you will also make lots of mistakes and if you don't I will make them for you.  This is so when you return home you will know how to fix everything!  Furthermore, unlike online courses you need to learn how to deal with clients and their babies - first impressions are so important.  Over the two days you get to meet lots of babies of various ages, as this will have an impact on how you create the casting.  

You also have the option to purchase a starter pack for £500, again people question the cost and again everyone who has purchased one has not regretted it.  The starter kits will include all materials and equipment to enable you to make a substantial number of samples before you see your first client.  If you don't believe me I invite you to speak to any of my affiliates who have purchased one, so you can ask them yourself.  If you are serious about setting up a casting company you want to start off as you mean to go on and I will ensure you do.

Quite a few people also look to do the half day Family Casting workshop alongside the 3D Casting workshop.  Again, you do not have to do this all at once, if you want to take some time to practice what you have learnt and return at a later date then that is absolutley fine.

If you are interested then call me Glenda on 07738165146 or enquire here.  After our initial chat if you are still keen I will get one of my affiliates to get in touch with you.  They have been there and will be absolutely honest about the training and starter kits.  That way, when you do attend the training you will have no doubts at all that you have made the right decision and will be ready to start your new business.
