In the Studio – Dark and Moody Workshop

Every year I host this workshop at least 2-3 times, it never seems to fail. I have other new ventures and offerings this year, but I thought I would start off with the same old D&M Workshop. I set everything up pretty much the same, but I like to offer different subjects and change things…
