Etching Slate Using the Silhouette Curio FULL

The purpose of this class is to overview beginning engraving on Slate coasters and signs. While this is not a hands-on class you will see the Coaster Creation process from start to finish and will receive written process notes and resources so you can make some coasters or signs at home.
