Scrappypine, A while ago a scrapbook store about 35 miles from me that was offering a Copic class for $40. I knew it was not the official one and I did not sign up for it. I was afraid of just what you said that it would be a waste of money . If I take Copic classes they will be the Copic sponsored ones from a certified insturctor.
