    Sara is great. We had a fun group. I wish this was a two part class so we could go more in depth.
  • Fun and Easy Tarot - Learn to Read Tarot

    Anonymous review on 4/21/2024
    We got a late start and the instructor seemed kinda frazzled the whole time. The instructional style seemed a little haphazard. We sped thru the meaning of each card and were discouraged from reading the deck books, and to instead do everything from intuition, which is hard to build from if you are randomly assigned the “grimoire deck” and every card illustration depicts something catastrophic. It was fun, but way too expensive. (There was a $12 materials fee on top of the course fee, but we didn’t get a tarot card deck so I’m unsure why.) Also the class was from 2:30 - 5:30, not 4:30. And it ran late due to disorganization.
  • Fun and Easy Tarot - Learn to Read Tarot

    Anonymous review on 2/29/2024
    I liked the class, but I was surprised at the fee. Not only was the class $59, which would've been fine, but the instructor charged an additional $12 at the class. I thought that I was going to get a tarot deck for that fee but I just got some photo copies of instructions on reading tarot. Overall, it was overpriced and I wouldn't do it again.

    It was very good indeed. The instructor knew their stuff well, and wasn't afraid to tell us this. We all walked out with great quality stained glass pieces that we can all be proud of.

    This was a great introduction to stained glass! Isabel was a detailed and helpful instructor and provided hands-on support to all the students. You can get your piece framed with a chain for an extra cost, but it was nice to go home with a finished piece that was ready to hang up. Overall it was fun but pricier than expected.

    I was the only person registered for the class so it was one on one. Though I stated I did not want to do this I said I’d give it a try. I managed to do two classes but I really did not enjoy being the only student. However the teacher was very nice and an engaging conversationalist ( in English) Both he and the director of school were personable and flexible and I believe they will allow me to take a different class in the future with my unused classes. I recommend this school for flexibility and a human touch,

    Didn’t walk away with everything I should’ve learned for basic Notary Skills. Need more class structure, group was too large in tight space and focus more on Notary lesson only.
  • Intro to Crochet

    Anonymous review on 7/3/2023
    Instructor was awesome and very hands on. We learned one basic knot. Didn’t care for picture illustrations, especially if you don’t know what you are doing. But, realistically this one day 2 hours is not enough. Thank goodness it was only myself and one other student. This needs to be taught in a series of classes. This really was a waste of money and time.

  • Stained Glass Workshop

    Reviewed by Katlyn T. on 4/24/2023
    First, if you're interested in doing your own design in this class, it's not going to happen. The description says you can but it would take up too much class time and this is just an intro class. HOWEVER, the pattern they do provide you is really pretty and the choice of glass they provide to make your masterpiece is awesome. The instructor I had, Isabel, was super knowledgeable and she was really approachable. Some teachers are intimidating and you're too scared of them to ask questions but Isabel was really sweet and kind. Last thing: you pay for the class up front and you pay for the materials day-of. If you want your stained glass creation framed and hung by a chain, it'll cost extra. That's not a complaint, it's just good to know if you're looking at the price of the class/creation.
