What participants say about our classes:

"You have truly changed the way I look at art—being free to just play with materials and let them become beautiful pieces. I'm still amazed by how many pieces came out of your class. I have framed nearly all of them."

"Thank you for opening my eyes and life to an entire new avenue of fun and creativity."

"I took your beading workshop several weeks ago and since then made some necklaces using the technique you taught us. They were much easier to make your way and look lovely. I’m so glad I took the class and appreciate the help you gave us."
