Course testimonials:

  • said: I was able to utilise the tools and the teacher's knowledge and make some beautiful pendants with some crystal stones I brought with me.

  • said: Yoshiko was very knowledgeable and very attentive to all students. She spent her time well with all students. My only negative comment is I would have liked to have class notes in the first class. I felt we could have done more in the week between classes if we had more information on wire gauge etc. Regardless loved the course and would recommend it.

  • said: Yoshi our teacher was magical. She is totally focussed on her students. She is a joyous , vibrant person. The atmosphere in the class was very happy. She is a delight.
