Attended: Wax Carving (Absolute Beginners)
Within the first 2-3 weeks we carved a basic ring from start to finish and were exposed to the basic tools, which was great. After that we worked on our own designs- I recommend you have some knowledge of how to draw/visualize your creation or pictures of something you want to replicate. The teacher was very helpful yet easygoing, but when classes got crowded (more than 6-8 people or so), it was difficult to get attention- just something to be aware of.
