    This class was a lot of fun! The instructor was extremely knowledgeable about different resins and was very good at showing how creative you can get with this stuff. Atmosphere was fun as well.

    Lino Cut printmaking class was fun. It was the perfect-sized class and had enough materials for everyone to use. The instructor was nice, patient and helpful. She made sure that each of us got to see the demo and learn how to use the tools. I also appreciated that there were images to chose from and had time to make extra prints.

    The class was helpful in terms of introducing how to work with resin. UV resin is used, which makes sense because it cures very quickly, vs. the type you mix. However, this was not explained in the class overview, and my primary interest was in the more traditional type, so that was a bit disappointing. The teacher is upbeat, friendly and laid back. At the same time, her teaching style was too laid back for me. We kinda meandered through the process. A list of materials would have helped, beyond “you can find things on Amazon”. But you do get the basics.

    I had a group of 6 attend for my Moms Birthday. The teacher was very accommodating and let us come early to eat pizza that we didn’t have time to eat at the restaurant. She provided plates, glasses and everything else we needed. Great experience overall! Would come back!

    This was a fun hands-on class that made resin jewelry making feel so much easier that I expected. I went home with several pieces and a curiosity to keep it up!

    I really enjoyed this class! I made 3 resin pieces and learned so much. I found a new hobby and can't want to make more pieces. The BYOB is a nice touch and makes for a fun girls night of creating, laughing and sharing. The shop was really cute with lots of things to look at and purchase (jewelry, accessories, art, clothing). I loved the ambiance and the teacher was sweet, knowledgable and walked around to give 1 on 1 attention. Strongly recommend this class. A+++

    We had a really nice time at Emily's resin jewelry class. All attendees made their own creations after Emily gave us instructions and pointers .
    I was already "dabbling" in resin jewelry and learned some great tricks at this class.
    I may venture into teaching classes in my area.
    Highly recommend this class for a girls night out or even if you just want a night out alone.

    The class was great! They really had everything you could need to make a cool collage, including these cool stamper thingys and they even taught us how to transfer images onto tape to add a some layering effects. It was a lot of fun

    Really enjoyed learning Lino Cut — feels like a new great hobby to pick up. This class was a lot of fun and definitely more challenging than one thinks. Definitely recommended!
