The class was really interesting. The instructor was exceedingly generous with resources and her time, and she clearly has a love for what she does. From what the teacher made available with teaching us skills and a big variety of materials to work with she inspires you to ideas to try out for yourself at home. I would highly recommend this class. It's a great way to unstress and make beautiful stuff for yourself and gifts for friends/family.
