The workshop will begin February 3, 2013 and continue on the first Sunday of March and April. The workshops run from 12:30 – 4:00 pm and the cost for the first three months is $130 (membership discounts apply).
You’ll be required to bring with you basic supplies, listed in the workshop information below, and all other papers, mediums and specialty products to use on your pages will be supplied in class.
