The class idea was great, hands-on for such a universal skill but the execution was not great. Too many people for setup they have. No clear view of the video screen, and not quite enough time for the demonstrator to come around and help everyone for the more complex techniques. There seemed to be a few people there who knew what they were already doing already and clearly didn't need an introduction class, it was disappointing to see the demonstrator skip a couple of the more basic things such as putting on the white nozzle because a couple of people said they knew how to do it. Overall helpful but not because of the execution. Not worth the price.
