    Good intro to Tarot. Perfect setting to have a Tarot card class. The shop reminds me of the shop in "Needful Things". The teacher seems experienced and knowledgeable. Teacher graciously provided snacks and drinks. The class was a bit crowded for such a small space.

    Had a great time, and got a chance to meet other participants in a fun way. Might have been nice to have an overarching framework for the lesson, but I appreciated the positivity and supportive environment.

    Was a really fun class and very informational. The instructor was great. and was very informed about the topic and kept things moving along nicely. The space where the class was held was the perfect venue for class on Tarot and I'll definitely be going back to check some things out in the future.

    I really enjoyed this class! It struck the perfect tone between taking Tarot seriously and investing in it but also having fun and encouraging questions. The teacher was awesome and did a great job of making us all feel comfortable and sharing some of her experience with us. I would definitely recommend the class and the gallery where it takes place!

    Anne was a fantastic teacher, treating the topic with just the right combination of respect and levity. Though the class was packed, everyone received attention as they needed it, and felt welcome in the great atmosphere of the gallery. It is honestly such a cool space, in general; I'd like to attend more classes there.

    This was a fun workshop. It was an eclectic group of folks and Ane's shop was really cool. Ane was positive and upbeat and made Tarot Reading accessible to everyone. I love that she emphasized there is no right or wrong message; it is all open to interpretation. I'm excited to practice reading on myself and others. I will definitely sign up for the next class in the series when I am able.
