Squarespace 101

It's more complicated than I thought and requires at least 4 evenings I feel. Perhaps it should be called Creating a Website with Squarespace which is really why we were there.

Great class for someone who has never opened the program and want to learn about it. We walked through all of the basic tools and leaned how to navigate in the program. The class moved at a good pace with a really good instruction. The instructor always helped us and made effort to make sure about we are all in the same level. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone wanting to get started with inDesign, you will learn a lot and will be able to work with the program in 2 days!

Great class. Joan was very patient. Class had all different levels. Finished my pajama pants. Learned to use a surger and sewing machine. It’s a lot of info but if you stick with it it’s a great sense of accomplishment. I practiced after every class at home.

Woodworking: Milling and Finishing

The intro to the process of milling rough sawn lumber, the tools and how to use them was great. The project is perfect (cutting board) but it was a little disorganized. Maybe half of the class actually tried the joiner and planer and we spent a while setting up the router templates. I was disappointed we didn't talk about finishes at all. That seemed to be a large part of the course description that really piqued my interest. My suggestion would be to remove that from the course description if it's not actually part of the course and also to update the list of supplies to bring - really only needed a brush for glue, an empty yogurt cups for glue and goggles/glasses for eye protection if you have a pair. And most importantly, setup 4 groups to rotate between the 4 steps of milling so everyone (who wants to) gets a chance to try using the jointer, planer, jointer and maybe table saw - though the latter is much faster for an instructor to do all the ripping. Thanks!

Excellent class. Professor Fong crams an impressive amount of content within the 2 classes, and gives the students a good time to practice as well as individual attention during practice time.

It's a good class, I learn how to navigate the program and can sculpt at least like I would in real life. I would recommend this for people who already know how to sculpt traditionally and just need some software help.

This class was fantastic. Chris, the instructor, ran the class very well and at the perfect pace. The computer room was very nice and up to date. I loved that we got paper handouts, too. The small class size was also great.

Great class that covered machinery + hand tools. The instructor and TA were both super knowledgeable and accommodating. Class size was a bit large so there was some waiting to use machines, but we all finished our tables.
