If you want to take home a ceramic tile, a fabric sheet and a distressed piece of wood and not buy in bulk, please give $5 to the instructors for their purchase of your materials.

You will need a do it yourself mentality. The projects are easy but be prepared to get your hands messy. If you are ready to start, please bring a photo or two to try out the process.
