You'll learn to create beautiful frames, mirrors, candleholders, vases, mooncatchers, napkin holders, lighting pieces, and more -- all with a modern graphic appeal. You'll also be introduced to new trends, such as integrating exciting materials, embellishing your designs with etching and painting, and building easy custom forms that make creating three-dimensional projects a breeze.
