I also sell Beginner's Kits with all of the items on the list (plus a few extras) for $145 (This price is subject to change, depending on my cost). I am able to get a very deep discount on the supplies because I buy in bulk and pass the savings on to my students. I do not make a profit from any of the supplies. Kits are available only to students of Brenda Williams Studio.
