About Your Instructor:
Hello, I’m Tiffany Ross, a passionate dice artisan with a love for crafting and connecting with fellow enthusiasts. Over the past five years, I’ve immersed myself in the world of dice making, honing my skills, and discovering the joy of creating unique pieces of art.

As an avid Dungeons and Dragons player, I understand the importance of having personalized dice that not only enhance the gaming experience but also reflect the creativity and personality of the player.

I am excited to share my knowledge and expertise with others who share a passion for both crafting and tabletop gaming. Hosting this dice-making class is not just a workshop; it’s a chance for me to create a community of artisans, providing a hands-on experience where participants can feel empowered to craft their own dice.

My goal is to inspire creativity, foster camaraderie, and empower individuals to add a touch of their unique flair to their gaming sessions.
