The DSD Epoxy Retreat is designed for Artist Derwin Scott to teach his unique style and all he's learned over the years! If you’re looking for something creative and different as a career change, or maybe adding to what you already do, the epoxy floor coating industry is a great choice due to the rising demand and low overhead for start-up cost. Derwin speaks on his journey, the mistakes he's made, the losses he's taken, and what he's done to build a successful business and brand. You will learn all there is to learn about installing epoxy during the day. But at night, we’re bonding, sharing networks, and learning from each other’s experiences. This class is not for those who are just in it for the money! Derwin is looking for the motivated, go-getting, creative minds for this exclusive class. We want the type of people who understand that passion pays more than skill over time any day! If that’s you, join us in the journey to Doing Something Different!



This retreat is more than just a learn-and-go-home class session. After attending, you are now apart of the DSD SQUAD, our exclusive network of go-getters who have attended the retreat. This network is a constant support system in helping you continue to master the craft after the retreat. You have direct contact to Derwin to ask any questions you have, as well as opportunities to work with him on future jobs.
