Great class and great instructor. If you like to learn and create then this is a great class for you. I recommend thinking about the type of knife you want to make. Look up examples. Try not to get too complex if this is your first go at it. The class size being 6 people is a good amount where you don't have to wait too long on machines. Complimentary water bottles are a nice touch.

The class was nice, and I was the only one in this particular class, which was fun to play around a bit more, but got out in a little over an hour. However, for the cost, the information learned and the product gained was a little less than what I had hoped. The instructor was very nice, though.

The class was great! The instructors were knowledgeable, approachable and engaging. I learned how to use multiple new power tools and got a good overview of how to cut and build wooden objects. I would definitely recommend the class to someone new to woodworking.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the class! We had about 7-8 people in the class so everyone had to wait while one person learned to use the saw machines so that part sucked a little but other than that it was really fun :)

Really cool studio and equipment. The reason 3 stars is because you think you're going in to learn a skill. But in reality you're glueing the copper together so you aren't learning welding and the instructor installs the electrical hardware. So you don't actually learn anything.

Good and fun instructor explained everything well and learned a lot about welding in addition to having about 1hr of weld time from the 3 hour class.
