Tutorials

When we sit down to write a tutorial, we apply the same principles that we do for our class guides. They must contain all the information a beginner would need and they must be easy to follow. They must be packed with detail and they must have lots of photographs for visual reference. Our tutorials will teach you all you need to know, some have recipes and some have printable templates.

We also have some free tutorials and recipes available.
