Isabelle is an excellent instructor! She gave lots of tips and demonstrations throughout the class. As beginners, we learned to hold the cutting and soldering tools properly. She had lots of beautiful glass. We enjoyed the class so much.

The instructor was very thorough. He constantly referred to items in the book provided. He was very patient in answering questions and pointing out mistakes. I would recommend his class to anyone interested in learning bridge.

Instruction was great, loved the hands on technique, and was right on pace with my learning. I was knitting in no time, even went home and knitted for another few hours.

Facility is easy to get to. The instructor was knowledgeable and patient. I was able to get examples, practice and encouragement. I look forward to another class, I would like to know how to read crochet patterns or perhaps learn how to make some other items.

This was a great class. I loved the pace of the class and leaving with a finished product. The instructor had an impressive background and has clearly streamlined the curriculum and their approach based upon what works. She was very good at accommodating people who worked more quickly or already had experience; this freed her up for assisting people who had fallen behind later in the workshop. The COVID protocols were good, but led to less socializing and more independent work, with which I was fine. The space was not a studio, but the instructor did a good job of bringing the necessary materials and tools. I would definitely take another class from this instructor.
