Thoroughly enjoyed this class. Olivia (the instructor) is very knowledgeable, and the rest of the staff was extremely helpful. A great space with great vibes!

This was a great class. I learned a lot, it was small enough for enough one-on-one interaction with the teacher, and she was incredibly knowledgable and helpful. The only drawback is that I felt rushed. It probably should have been a 3-day workshop rather than a 2-day one. But it was definitely worth it.

Great class. Fantastic instructor. Just be prepared to work patiently as you spend hours filing and sanding the piece. The bezel technique was interesting to learn. Not sure I would do it again. Took a lot of time!

Loved this class! Olivia the teacher and Sue were incredibly knowledgeable and patient. Even though there about 10 people in class, they gave their undivided attention to everyone. The studio is also fully equipped with tools and machines. I highly recommend this class and am looking forward to taking more classes here.
