Become Our Digital Apprentice

Get started with the first module of our Digital Apprenticeship program and take the beginner to intermediate crash course to massively accelerate your learning experience as you learn by doing.  The Fantasy Armor series is purpose-built to give you a guided tour packed solid with demonstrations, tips, & techniques that will catapult you to new heights as you gain new skills and knowledge. The pattern set comes with two distinct styles and each video lesson demonstrates new details and options for you to consider for your own armor creation. 

At the end of the program, you will have an epic fitted suit all of your own made with your own two hands, but more importantly, you’ll have the skills to move forward with even more elaborate and exciting projects in the future.
