What to Expect as a Blade Craft Apprentice
There are 2 different tracks for each term:
- Monday, Wednesday and Friday
- Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
The first 13 weeks are comprised by classroom lecture. After completion of the classroom term, students will work on the shop floor with real Blade Craft clients under the supervision of a blade Master Instructor.
A typical schedule may look something like this:
Sample A: Monday & Wednesday from 9:30am - 8:00 pm ; Friday from 8:30am - 2:00pm OR 1:30pm - 7:00pm
Sample B: Tuesday & Thursday from 9:30am - 8:00 pm ; Saturday from 9:30am - 3:00pm
The first 13 weeks of class will establish a foundation of practical & theoretical barber education. Students will then work on the shop floor with real Blade Craft clients under the supervision of a Blade Master Instructor.
The Apprentice Gear
Custom Barber Smock
Each student will get a custom tailored white
Barber’s smock fitted specifically for the student.
Handcrafted Leather Bag
Made to take a beating, this American-made artisan leather case from Satchel and Page will hold all of your gear for years to come.
We love the Feather weighted straight razor, and include it in all of our Barber’s kits. It has a good feel in the hand, sharp blades and one of the easiest razor disposal methods around.
We believe practicing with the best tools makes you the best you can be. We include Etaro student shears and Andis GTX Outliners clippers in every apprentice kit because we believe these are the best tools to learn with on a daily basis.
We use the Milady Standard Barbering textbook. It’s the leading resource in barbering education, providing students with the foundational principles and techniques needed to be a successful barber. And Blade Craft just happens to be featured in it.
BLADE CRAFT UNIFORM
Last but not least, the toolkit comes with 2 Blade Craft T-shirts from Lewellyn’s Print Shop located right here in Deep Ellum.
