This is a brand new online class that I’m trying out through Facebook. Each month I will talk about tools, materials, supplies; anything that has been hanging around your studio forever and you either ignore it completely, or keep putting it back in the drawer because you don’t know what to do with it!!

Sometimes the class will be in written form.  Sometimes I’ll do a Facebook live video, where you can ask me questions.  Sometimes there will be take-aways for you.  You will just have to tune in to find out!

As well, I am always open to suggestions for future classes.
