    I enjoyed this class but due to a last minute change in venue, it went from 2.5 hours to only 2 hours. It felt a bit rushed, so that extra half an hour would have been just what I needed to put the finishing touches on my project.

    The last minute location change made the class a little more hectic than expected but overall it was a great class! Katie did a great job of demonstrating the techniques used and was very willing to answer questions. She did a good job balancing a long table in a loud bar; she moved up and down the table and made sure the instructions were clear to everyone. Although I had to concentrate more than I expected, I really enjoyed learning the art of Paper Quilling! So much so that I bought myself a starter kit on Amazon!

We were actually able to make 2 terrariums each, when I originally thought we would only be making one. So that was a plus. The instructor was very nice and friendly. She was able to quickly demonstrate how to create small clay characters for our terrariums. It seems like she had other classes that we might check out in the future! Would recommend.

    There are two things I want you to know about this class:

    1. Katie is warm, friendly, and super talented. You will walk out with something gorgeous under her instruction.
    2. Katie has SO many options to make a gorgeous book. So. Many! She gives you ample time to figure out what you want to make and how you want it to look, and she can even walk you through the many choices.

    Take this class. Make yourself a journal. Or a new notebook. Or a custom sketch book. Anything you make will be incredible!

    This class was great. I'd already been doing some linocut printmaking at home, but the material Katie provided to carve was so much easier to work with than what I'd been using. So not only did I make a great set of greeting cards, I now have a new, easier material that I'm going to switch over to in my personal practices. The cozy space was set up with everything that we needed and we were able to enjoy some BYOB style wine while we worked. A+ experience - very glad I did it.

    Fantastic linocut class - I truly was amazed that I not only carved what I did, but that I inked and printed it too. Katie's direction was fantastic, and you can tell she's a teacher in real life, as she is patient, provides good direction, suggestions, and tips, and keeps things running on time (and provides you reminders of the timetable!).

    Katie's great! The class is nice, mellow opportunity to sit and chat with friends and have fun with art. And my plate, despite my lack of artistic talent, turned out quite nice. Great class.

    Can't wait to try some of her other classes!

    This class was well organized and taught in such small, digestible pieces that I remember what we did and could probably do it again on my own if I wanted to. I'm more likely to go back for a second class though, because Katie has a wonderful work space and a ton of awesome paper and decoration options. It was a ton of fun, very instructive and I left with a handmade book that looks pretty awesome.

    She was very warm and welcoming, she had all her supplies on display, and a lot of things to choose from.Her instructions were great and easy to follow , she was open to all questions, and gave us a lot of tips to apply in future projects.

    The class was really fun and useful. The instructor provided all the materials and had lots of paper and decorations to choose from. I made a cute book that I am really happy with and feel like I could make more books on my own reasonably well. The class was in the instructors home, which at first felt a little funny, but she was very friendly and welcoming.
