    I had a great time at Blocks + Brews! Ashley made the whole process of block printing simple and accessible for everyone in the class. She made sure everyone got individual help and went home with prints that they were happy with. I would recommend this class for anyone who wants to try block printing or just wants to relax and have a fun night of making art.

    Awesome class! Ashley was very prepared and experienced. She gave us just the right amount of demonstration and instruction and turned us loose--gave lots of positive encouragement. Very knowledgeable and helpful.

    What a wonderful experience! Ashley gave us the basics we needed to get started, and then she offered pointers and lots encouragement as we worked on our block. I don't consider myself an artsy person, but I made something I was really happy with. Thanks for a wonderful class!

    I really enjoyed this class. I've never considered myself a very artistic person, but with Ashley's guidance, I was able to create something cool, creative and that I was really proud of. My friend and I loved it so much, we promptly went out and bought all the supplies to be able to continue block printing. It was easy, fun, and the beer was extra tasty. I highly recommend!

    Great class---I remembered (trying) to carve linoleum blocks back in school, to massively lukewarm results and was thus apprehensive about whether this class would be any fun. We used rubber, which was super easy to work with even to carve curves! Very forgiving, great entry-level material. Highly suggest giving a bit of thought before you go to class to what design you might like to make -- do some web searches for black and white images that aren't too complex, and take them with you. Ashley can help you pick which one is a good bet for your first block, and off you go! Folks in our class did a leaf, a cactus, a bike chainring, and a mountain.....

    Fun class in a laid back setting. Small group but I like it better that way. Really fun to test out this form of art!
