Project in a box "Chevrons technique". Mastering and Creativity. COE96.
If you ever participated on-site training courses, you understand their value. You get an opportunity to learn a new technique or method and make something under instructor's supervision. You have access to the training materials, get all required tools and materials, ask questions to the instructor. But usually, the price is too high. You pay not only for the course itself (about $200 per day), but also for travel and lodging.
Now you have an alternative. This "Project in a box" can substitute an on-site course and save you ton of money. This set named "Mastering and Creativity" lets you do all the steps required for making a square plate 12" x 12" (30 x 30 cm) using Chevrons technique. You have a limitless number of options you can play with to unleash your creativity.
You get a package with the following:
- A flash-drive with a 90-min. video course "Chevrons - technique of glass fusing". Detailed description is available here: Video tutorial Chevrons technique of glass fusing (gamesofcolors.com)
- Brief instructions. This document guides you step-by-step but refers to the video course for details.
