Online Scan N Cut Workshop

New Brother Scan N Cut Online Course Now Available!

Fancy doing a Brother Scan N Cut workshop with me in your own home? Well, I am very pleased to let you know that now you can!

*** updated 30/08/2020***


During the sell-out run of UK based Brother Scan N Cut workshops, AND the additional bookings for the more advanced workshops AND a request to host a workshop in South Africa, Australia and the United States, it has become evident that I am not physically capable of conducting workshops in every location that has been requested, especially given that many of you guys & gals live in all corners of the world!

I have therefore been using my ‘spare time’ over the last few months to develop, record, edit and upload an online course that you can enjoy at your own pace and in your own home that replicates and expands on the content of the workshops that I have been hosting.

The course, designed for everyone from the beginner to the long-time Scan N Cut user that feels that they are not getting the most from their machine, will take you from the very beginning and guide you through all of the key features of the Brother Scan N Cut machine in an easy to follow series of bite-sized video lectures.

The course even goes beyond the basics and gives you an in-depth look at Canvas Workspace, the online design companion to the Brother Scan N Cut system.

Not in the UK or away from home? Don’t worry, because this course is hosted online so you can access it from around the world!

Best of all, you can watch on your smart-phone, tablet, a computer and, for the truly tech-savvy, on your TV using Apple TV or a Google Chromecast device.

So, no matter where you are in the world, and no matter the time of day, you can take this course in your own time and at your own pace.

Even better still is the fact that it includes tuition for both the CM and DX series of machines. So, whichever you choose to own today, and whichever you choose to own in the future, you will have the information that you need.

Got any questions about this course? Please feel free to pop them in the comments section below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

*** UPDATE ***

Had a fair few questions from various sources so thought I’d pop them here with answers.

  1. What is the price of the course? I have priced it at £29.99 however as many of you saw during the launch weekend Udemy sometimes has a sale on where they offer the courses on their site for less. I don’t control when these happen so if you see it at a lower price, grab it!
  2. Do I have to pay for the app? No, the app is free.
  3. Can I access this on a MAC/Smartphone/Tablet? Yes. For some devices, the app offers a better experience than the browser.

As a final note, as the platform that I am using to host this course is managed by Udemy, all technical/playback/access issues will need to be addressed to them. On a PC move your cursor over your avatar and select ‘support’ from the menu. In the app tap on ‘Account’ and then swipe down until you see ‘support’ and tap on that.

    • Hi Ros, I don’t believe so. Pricing and payment processing are handled by Udemy. I am not sure where you are in the world however local taxes may be applied during checkout – could this be a possibility? If not, it may be worth trying again from scratch. If that still doesn’t correct things I would reccomend contacting the Udemy technical team.


    • Hi John, same thing happened to me this morning – several times!!. Just tried again and it says not available still. Will try again tomorrow in case they have been swamped by people wanting it , but just wanted you to know in case other people couldn’t access it BW Jacqui

      • Shouldn’t think demand would be an issue as this platform hosts tens of thousands of students accessing hundreds of courses so they are geared up in that way. When you say ‘not available’ please can you clarify what you mean by this…


      • Very odd! Would you mind reporting this to Udemy when you have a moment, please? I am sure that they will be able to help find out what is happening and fix this for you. It seems to be isolated to two cases so I wonder if it is specific to region or device but they would be best placed to help.


  2. Hi John

    A terrific idea, not just the fact it’s obviously something that there is demand for but that this benefits people who, for whatever reason, can’t travel to the workshops you do around the UK. The fact the hosting app has CC is a bonus too. As you know I use a different cutting machine but will share on Pinterest, Insta & Twitter for you.

    Hugs. T x

  3. Just signed up! I have done quite a bit with my SnC but there’s always more to be learned, and great to find your classes all in one place. Very glad you’ve gone for Udemy as the platform, I’ve done several classes on there and been very pleased with the service.

    All the best for the new venture!

  6. Hi John

    I hope you are well

    Could you confirm the total cost is £10.99. Just checking as I thought it too low. Also could I ask I purchased a lot from your original site from day 1 but am unsure which section on the new rules to sign up for. I am a card maker and don’t really do 3D projects as such so could you advise the best subscription to go for

    Many thanks as always for your inspiration

    Kind regards

    • Hi Eve,
      The price that I set is £29.99 however Udemy sometimes run special offers for the courses hosted on their website so therefore if they say the price is £10.99 then that’s the price – but I don’t know how long that offer will run so it’d be worth grabbing it if you’re interested.
      Re the new Digi site. It’s more based on what you want to do – if you just want the cutting files then the CUT level will be just fine. The CRAFT level adds coordinating digi papers, digi stamps and an extra cutting file set to make a pre-designed project. I don’t think the CREATE level would be right for you as apart from a 3D project the only addition would be extra file types to use with other software.
      Hope this helps.


  7. This is brilliant! Have signed up. Having you as a personal tutor any time we like – what more could we want? Can’t wait to get to know my machine, and especially canvas, even better. Better get started. Thank you for all your hard work.

    Hi John, Long time no see. I have just seen your new course details on the Scan n Cut and I think it is a marvellous idea, so much I went over to the site to buy it, but I don’t know if I am having an old lady mind block, but the only one I saw was a similar course but it was only £10.99. Is there another section on Udemy that I have missed? Sorry to bother you but there may be another old biddy like me who needs a little help to find things. I know this course is really going to take off and wish you all the best, you deserve it. Love Joan xx


    • That’s the right one Joan. I believe that Udemy have been offering special prices on their courses this weekend, including new ones. So, if that price is still there, I’d sign up before it goes back up to the regular price of £29.99
      PS, so lovely to hear from you again; I do worry when I don’t hear from you.


  9. Sounds great. Will you be doing troubleshooting as well? And how much would the course be for Australian users? I have viewed a few of your tutorials and find them very easy to follow with occasional pauses. New to scan n cut and computers. Thankyou.


    • I will be adding a trouble shooting section once I get an idea of which things students struggle with the most.
      Price in AUD is 34.99 however Udemy may have a special offer in your region so it might be worth checking on the website.


  10. Oh John. Thank you so much. I’ve just purchased your course. I’m so excited…… I love that you are sharing your knowledge. You have such an easy going way of describing things on create and craft, I’m so looking forward to my journey of getting to know my machine.

    • Yes, Cynthia. I have priced it at £29.99. The reason that I didn’t list the price in the blog post was that sometimes Udemy offers special prices on the courses hosted on their website so I wasn’t sure if it would change and when, plus I didn’t want this blog post to mislead. Hope I have clarified things for you :)


  11. Brilliant, and such a reasonable price. I’ve had my S’nC for quite a long time, and am always going to do more, but never do. I’ve got no excuse now. Bought and ready to start. Do you ever manage to find time to sleep? xx
