Are you interested in learning cartonnage to teach classes in the near future? Cartonnage is so fun to make and also to teach! As I cannot possible be traveling and teaching this everywhere, I love to have this group of “Trained Cartonnage Teachers” that help me spread the word and share this Joy with many fabric lovers all around US.
How you can become a trained cartonnage teacher? First, you have to be a Member of our Cartonnage Club and practice. All you need to learn the technique is here. So, after at least 6 months as a member, and making many boxes and be confident with the method, you can join our group of Cartonnage Teachers. They are all independent teachers, but have my support, learn my tips for teaching, get DIY kits with discounted prices and more benefits. If this sounds like your plan, join the Club and contact me for more information.
(Important note: to be allowed to teach my method and the projects designed by me, you have to be part of our Trained Cartonnage Teachers program)

I have done most of the online courses available. The online courses are very well done and, like all of Claudia’s products, very detailed. Also, she is available to answer questions if you have them and I really appreciate her quick response. You have access to the free and paid classes and videos at any time. ( There’s nothing like taking a Cartonnage course in your jammies—LOL) Marita
Just got home from vacation and went straight to Cartonnage! Couldn't wait to make the new desk organizer!! The hardest thing to do.... was to figure out what fabric to use😆. Following Claudia class on line, it was SO MUCH FUN AND EASY TO DO! I just LOVE it. Vicki
Using Claudia’s extremely helpful worksheets, I designed a box, cut the chipboard and covered it with pretty paper. I needed something to hold my paper crafting dies so that I could easily flip through them to find what I wanted. The solution was cartonnage. Joyce
Claudia's worksheet is very helpful ! and that's the 1st
time I see a teacher sharing so much her tips. I tried with empiric method, I
will say, and had a lot of bad tries. But try, retry and still try ... If I had
Claudia's explanations, I would have saved a lot of chipboard and time!
Claudia does an excellent job of describing the process of Cartonnage. The videos are easy to follow and Claudia explains each step in great detail. You can rewind and fast forward to do the work at your own pace. Claudia will answer any of your questions that come up. Cartonnage does not require any specialized tools but the toolkit makes things easier. The kits will save you time because all the paper is already cut out. But you can cut the paper out yourself too. Cartonnage is fun and not difficult to learn! I would recommend these videos for anyone interested in learning about Cartonnage. Betsy
I just finished my Cartonnage small box project, using Claudia's video tutorials and tools. The course was fun and included easy to follow lessons that were broken up into sections that made construction simple. Claudia explains everything, including materials required, how to's that are easy to follow and replicate, and clear and concise videos that show you what you need to do to complete the project. Using Claudia's spacer tool and corner miter tool takes all the guess work out of cutting and placement of pieces for perfect corners and spacing. Cartonnage is a great way to use up fat quarters and scraps that you have in your stash! The result is a wonderful piece of art that you can enjoy yourself or give as a cherished gift! Vicki
I am not a skilled crafter, but Claudia's online classes made me feel like one! I found the instructions were detailed yet clear and simple to follow. It was fun. I am delighted with the results. It is particularly important for me as a visual learner to see the instructions and then follow with her demonstrations. I could follow and complete each process with ease and confidence step by step. Her attention to detail is valuable in the processes. Cheri

I'm Claudia Squio a Brazilian-American artist living in Michigan and focusing on cartonnage, that is a traditional art of making boxes covered with fabric or paper. I design fabric boxes and cases and teach this amazing technique at quilt stores, quilt guilds and also through my online cartonnage school. I have authored the book “Cartonnage Basics & Beyond – The complete guide to make fabric boxes”. Besides creating the pieces and teaching I also develop some DIY kits and tools that can be used for my students to have fun, feel the relaxing power of crafting and facilitate the process of fabric box making.
