In a fun and innovative way, participants will learn how to utilize several basic design techniques of color, texture, balance, and scale.

|1. Begin your design transformation with a plain, tired, wooden, functional object of your choice – mini-wall shelves, candle holders, trays, bowls – all provided. Or, bring your own!|
|2. Pick your colorful array of textured, hand-made papers (also provided.)|
