Currently I am in the middle of setting up my studio at home. I already have some basic tools and a work space to get me started but what tools do I really need to get started? What torch should I buy that is safe to have in my home? How much ventilation do I really need? It seems like for every question I answer three more pop up.
Luckily, this Sunday, Danaca Design is having a workshop that will help me answer these questions and ones I haven’t even thought to ask yet. I’ll be taking this class…come join me!
