Loved the class and energy of instructor. Would like to do more classes with her. She was engaging, encouraging, and got us all involved in the flower arranging process. This was an introductory class. If she teaches next level I would love to learn from her again. She made it fun!

Such a great class! I cozied up in Colorado with all of my bar tools, ingredients, glassware and an ice bucket and had a great time taking notes, mixing drinks and enjoying the interesting material! Many thanks for a wonderful experience! Best, Amy Kunstle

I’m sorry to say that I was very disappointed with this class. I was expecting to enjoy it. The instructor went through the folding process so quickly and I simply could not keep up with the complexities. After doing the first piece quickly, I thought I would breeze through the rest, but he went too quickly and I could not. After 40 minutes, I left the group. Very disappointing. Helene Crohn

The topic and the book were wonderful. The instructor, Manny, had all kinds of conspiracy theories that he would talk about sometimes instead of plants.

I thought this course was going to be on Mixology using botanicals, not on botany and the history of mixology. I also recommend that the speaker show the audience what drinks he is making and how they’re made.
