Great class! Really enjoyed it and learned a lot. The instructor did a great job conveying helpful information and answering students' questions, and had lots of interesting stories of her personal experience in the fashion industry. Highly recommended.
Loved this class. Really informative introduction to home decorating. The instructor was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and gave projects that I learned a lot from as well.
It is a good course and the teacher is amazing. However, if you are truly a beginner you can find it a little difficult. it would have been perfect if there were a couple of classes more.
this course is very good for the one who wants to enter the world of designing and making clothes and articles for pets, and Professor Mrs. Kris Lynch, is wonderful, helps a lot to understand the classes and encourages and guides you so that you can undertake your own business
I gave the rating above because of several reasons. I came in and thought machine knitting would be a great skill to learn and I know more then I did when walking into the classroom, but not as much as I would have wanted. The professor that taught the class said she's been all over in the fashion industry which is great and she's very knowledgeable and knows what she's talking about as I myself am in the industry but, there was a serious disconnect when it came to wanting to teach. I noticed that she would get aggravated when techniques she showed to the whole class you didn't get on your first try and would have to show you again. I though that was disrespectful especially when you are a teacher you should know your going to have to show students more then once how to use machines they've never used before in there life. On that note I liked the class even though it was a short amount of time and what it was about but not the teacher teaching it because I didn't get to fully understand it without having to worry about her getting mad that I didn't understand what she said the first time.
I learned a lot in class.
Great class, a bit fast paced for the beginner but it makes sense because theres so much to get through.
Great intro to woodworking, we used almost every machine in the shop!
