The free classes are available to anyone who buys 'Fabulous Surfaces'. The site is password restricted and passwords will change, so you'll need to have your copy of the book handy when you log in.
The classes make up a complete course with each lesson concentrating on a particular technique or techniques. Each of these 'teaching' workshops will be followed a week later by an idea for a project based on the technique. Tuition will be through downloadable PDFs.
There will be three lessons, each uploaded at two-weekly intervals during January and February 2012. You can work in your own time and don't need to finish one lesson before seeing the next one. The lessons will stay on the site for the foreseeable future.
The classes will contain the following excitements: rusting, distressing, zapping and much more, with a Flickr group for participants to show their own work if they choose to do so.
Here is the list of materials for the first lesson.
