More information on class. The class allows for 2 bangles per student. All materials and most tools are supplied in that cost. Additional tools needed are listed below. If you are a beginner and have no tools I will share mine but you will have to take turns to use them which will take a bit longer to complete your project so plan accordingly.
Materials for additional bangles can be purchased if ordered ahead of time. Here is the breakdown on cost for additional bangles. If you wish to purchase additional bangles it will be necessary to email me at [masked] to tell me exactly what you want additional.
