$ 150  

 Cast away in this unique workshop, Jen will take you in to the world of casting.
You will learn how Jen makes these one of a kind 3 d casts. Also we will be using a fast setting resin, which is just out of this world. We then will paint the resin to give it that’s vintage appeal, with layering to make it age before your very eyes. Jen will teach you how we then add the vintage style brass edging, then the fun part we get to book bind or stitch and bitch! I guarantee this is a awesome fun class.
