My friend and I really enjoyed this class. I really like the concept of workshop freo, I'll definitely be returning for another class. We did have a few comments; we thought the class was incredibly rushed. There wasn't enough time to really trial and execute the techniques Mekel showed up before having to move on to something else. We also found it really hard to see Mekel show the examples because she was positioned behind the paints and on a flat surface. We had fun but definitely felt like we didn't get to explore our creativity because we were so rushed.
made a card and paper. learnt to use inks.
