Attended: Weaving 101

this is a very good class. Kira our instructor was excellent in that it was definitely a hands on program. We learned terminology as we needed it, we learned all the aspects a beginning weaver should know. Kira was encouraging and supportive of the project choices, when there were problems and questions. I highly recommend this class for anyone who is interested in weaving .


Attended: Screen Printing 101

Anonymous gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.


Attended: Leather Apparel Sewing

I thought the teacher was great and overall it was a good experience. I was disappointed in the facilities. It's not ideal to sew leather on home sewing machines, especially ones that aren't in proper working condition. Students had to share sewing machines.


Attended: Leather Working

The instructor Cat was very informative and gave excellent instruction and problem solving in leather working. We were able to learn several techniques that were applicable in many ways in a short amount of time. It would be helpful if there was the next level of class offered after this - an intermediate to advanced to work on techniques and to learn more solutions.


Attended: Felting 101 with STATE

A fabulous course! Adrienne was so helpful, patient, encouraging, inspiring. She showed us multiple techniques and we each made 4 different items, like table runners, kindle covers, bowls, bags, and wall hangings. She even helped me do a nuno felted runner when I asked for it, even though she didn't plan on doing any nuno felting. She provided all the materials and the workspace was roomy and comfortable. It was a great fun way to spend the weekend. Many thanks Adrienne, Marta
