Deep Dive into DTF Transfers

I'm thrilled to be your DIY guide!! As a passionate Cricut enthusiast since 2016, I know firsthand how overwhelming it can be to navigate the crafting world, especially if you're just starting out.

I like to think my secret sauce in teaching crafters is my background in environmental science. My scientific training allows me to provide accurate and concise information while still being approachable and friendly! (And inside of my course and workshops, I'll teach you all about how to be a Cricut Scientist too!)

I’m dedicated to staying up-to-date with the latest trends and techniques in the crafting industry and am committed to sharing my knowledge and expertise with you. Through Cricut Chemistry, I can’t wait to inspire and guide you on your crafting journey so you can unlock your creativity and achieve your DIY goals.

Hi! I'm Alex Vanover, professional maker & crafty educator.

Meet your professor.

You’ve got questions and I’ve got answers! If you have a question that isn’t addressed here, email me at support@diyalex.com.


These workshops are for the curious crafter who wants to expand the possibilities of the workshop topic. These workshops will help you move past hurdles and feel empowered and inspired to jump into your Cricut, craft, and DIY projects!

If you’ve gotten stuck on one of these projects and want to learn how to move past the problem, or if you’ve been too intimidated to dive into a new craft, consider this your sign to jump in with a workshop!

While the workshops are amateur-friendly, I don’t necessarily recommend each workshop for total Cricut beginners. Because we are deep-diving into each workshop topic, there may be context missing for those who are complete beginners. These topics are also not in order, so a beginner may find that confusing.

For example, in the print then cut workshop I am not giving complete context with Cricut Design Space. In the DTF workshop, you may feel lost if you’ve never used a heat press before. 

If you’re a complete Cricut beginner, I recommend looking into my online course Cricut Chemistry.

Each workshop will be approximately one hour, and the live Q&A call will last approximately one hour. So total watch time will typically be about two hours per workshop.

Once you purchase a workshop, you will have instant access to that pre-recorded workshop class and the downloadable class notes.

If you purchase the workshop prior to the Q+A live call, you can submit questions related to the workshop to be answered during our live call. You may also join us for the live Q+A call on Zoom! Note that live Q+A call dates and times vary per workshop.

If you purchase the workshop after the Q&A call, you can view the replay and/or read the Q+A transcript to see what other questions were covered.

Since each class covers a different topic, the materials needed to take the class will vary. Please see each workshop's description for more information on the required materials for specific classes.

For each workshop that you purchase, you will have lifetime access to the class, notes, and Q+A call replay and transcript.

Due to the digital nature of this course, we do not offer returns or refunds on DIY Alex Workshops.
