enjoyed this class! was at the perfect pace to learn and have fun. Very patient teacher..light music playing..creative bunch. found 3 hours to be perfect as well..you most likely won't finish your weaving masterpiece but its enough time to understand how to finish from there. Instuctor was very kind and patient.

The instructor, Jessi, clearly loves what she does! She was patient and provided clear directions. Everyone worked at different paces and she didn’t push or rush anyone to complete their project. She offered ideas and we could ask her any questions.

Jessi was great! Taught all the techniques we asked about and individually showed the group different things when asked. I also loved that we got to take our loom home! Great class structure.

The class was very relaxing and the instructor was very helpful. You can ask her specific technique you would like to learn and she will tell you in a clear instructions. Also, you can take your frame loom if you want and some yarns!

Class was wonderful! Our instructor was very helpful and very patient with the whole class. The group was small enough so we all got a good amount of attention, and yet diverse enough that there were lots of different ideas on the table. I was very inspired and left feeling I received a good foundation from Jessi.

The teacher was amazing, I learned so many different techniques for making designs and even stringing the loom. She teaches by showing you as you are doing it and she gave us all individual attention which meant teaching the same thing over and over and she seemed not to mind. I like the way my tapestry came out so far and I am looking forward to taking the advanced class w her next month.
