Classes by Season

2015-17 Classes

In case you missed Julia’s Cookie Swap journey in 2009, it was one of epic proportions! In the course of five months, Julia had over 100 book signings and cooking classes and 20-some media appearances in 12-plus major metro markets! And in 2011, she had nearly that many events to celebrate her second book Ultimate Cookies. There’s nothing Julia enjoys more about her work than meeting her readers, so she’s always scheduling demos and classes, new book or not. This year, Julia is traveling the world (literally) to teach one- and two-day long classes in cookie decorating. This latest journey will take her to such far-flung places as Athens, Greece and Santiago, Chile. Take a peek below to see what she’s scheduled in your neck of the woods. She would love to meet you!

To schedule an event, contact Julia at sweetlife@juliausher.com. Thanks for your interest!
