It has been a very nice experience to participate on these courses. Easy to follow and understand. Good teaching. I think it is important to take all courses from the beginning so that we get the information from start.

This is a great course even for people who have been doing some of this on their own. I got so many questions answered and I learned about techniques I have never heard of. I made some really beautiful things that I can actually sell! I highly recommend this class!
