How to Make a Sticky Wall

You’ll need 2 to 3 yards of “rip stop” nylon (available at most large fabric stores). Spray one side of the material with 3M Spray Mount - don’t use a substitute! Spray Mount is available at office/art supply stores. Spray outdoors. Fold the sticky sides together when transporting. Re-spray every 6 to 8 months. / Why should I have a training kit? Having a training kit helps you to be prepared, flexible, and adaptable to the many settings you might encounter as a facilitator/trainer.
How do I contain all this stuff? Storeyour training materials in tote bags, cardboard boxes, footlockers, milk crates, baskets, and portable files. Use whatever container(s) works for you!
