Loved the class, I made two beautiful silver link braclets. The instructor, Garnet, was patient and informative.
The teacher was flexible and allowed us to use pur own dogs as models for our sample garment
This class was great. It was pretty beginner-friendly but a few people in the class had some experience and still enjoyed it. The teacher is fun and very helpful. I learned some great skills and plan to take the next level course. Make sure you can attend all of the sessions - there's no make-ups or absences allowed!
I was expecting something more into fashion e fashion brands, some actual examples, how to really do it into the fashion world. The class is kind of "old way". I enjoyed some parts of the class and could have an idea. It was good, nothing special.
Great informative class and amazing instructor.
Great class, the teacher was relevant and current. Other students were also mature and experienced enough to share real experience and information.
This course was amazing
Isolina Perez is an excellent teacher. She showed us wire techniques that I didn't think a non-professional could do. She's very creative and patient. I'm looking forward to taking additional classes with her.
Love the bead weaving. The pearl knotting was difficult. The teacher was good. More time should've been spent on putting on the clasps as it was rather difficult.
I LOVE this class. I thought it was super useful
