My style is to introduce you to a new craft, teach you what I know, and to make sure you understand all you need to know so that when you get home you can continue advancing your skills and love a new craft.
I have many repeat students who make a day of it...after class you can go for lunch, at one of the many great places around town that I can recommend, or stop for great ice cream at one of 2 awesome places, spend the rest of your day on the beautiful beaches, or just stroll a round the town and stop in some of the great little shops!
Hope to see you in a class.... if you have any questions feel free to ask...I am here to help you.
