TRADITIONAL CRAFTS ONLINE
A traditional craft has to be seen, felt, experienced. Yes, you can do that online as well because our workshops are so much more than just a download link.
Depending on the subject you can choose between only the videos or a complete set with a box full of all the materials you need
Work whenever you feel like it. All workshops can be accessed for 6 months
I am here for you. You can ask questions or seek my assistance via email, chat or in the FB groups dedicated to the different workshops.
