IMPORTANT NOTE: This workshop is about experimenting, then

finding the best of what works for you after you see the results.

Use what you have. This list reflects what I used for the examples

you’ll see in the videos . It looks long, but I included things you

probably already have like scissors, pencils and paper towels. I

have given you sources when the materials might be new to you or

hard to find.
