The teacher did not explain things very clearly. She went too fast and has little patience for those who were struggling to grasp the concepts.

The teacher was incredibly knowledgeable and thorough in her instruction. She shared many tips on drawing and materials that as a former art school student, I appreciated. She was also very enthusiastic about the subject and her own work was beautiful. Linda was great. A gem. Go take her class!

The class ended a half hour early. Barely had time to eat or drink (which was part of the cost of the class). And the instructor was not that friendly nor particularly helpful. She moved quickly through each step and my flowers are already wilting, even though I changed the water and kept them in air conditioning all day.

I really enjoyed this class. The instructor offered a lot of helpful tips, and she had a nice sense of humor. We used about half the class to work on our own arrangements, and she came around and offered suggestions without being too critical. I would love to see other types of flower arranging classes at this time and location - maybe more structured arrangements, Japanese arrangements, or modern "low and tight" arrangements using floral foam.
