New – online course

Hidden Treasures 2b

Recently I’ve been looking at developing some online courses, and have written one so far. I would like to write some more so people anywhere in the world can learn about the processes I use. If anyone is interested in previewing my first one, it’s a cloth book workshop called Hidden Treasures that I made from eco dyed fabrics (you can also see a short video here – http://youtu.be/Wa4K5CLppcM). I would love to know your thoughts – even better, please consider enrolling for the course!
