Please note: This is a CraftCast Vintage Video created before it was possible to incorporate High Definition video, as we do today. How far we have come in such a short time! Using close-up photographs of each step of the process along with Celie's detailed instruction, you’ll be creating with these techniques in no time!

Class was recorded live so, just like in more recent videos, you’ll hear the live Q&A with other students.
