Not enough practical work

Fabulous handout, but the presentation did not deliver on the practical aspects promised in the course outline. Instead, it was a lecture, enhanced by a PowerPoint presentation, that summarized the handout material in bullet points. I would have preferred that we spend more time in class working with the repeat patterns that we were asked to bring along. The instructor could have demonstrated her process of working with repeat patterns, while we worked with our own stitch patterns. The thoroughly detailed written resource would cover any details not addressed during such a practical application of concepts, and we would have it to refer to later while working with repeat patterns on our own.

The instructor clearly is brilliant. Her handout was amazingly thorough. However, class content was a bit too 'dense' in that we spent 2.5 hours (for a 2 hour class) reviewing a powerpoint going over her handout. For a 2 hour class, it would have been more helpful to actually cover a bit less content, and have time to ask questions, and play with putting together different repeat patterns via class discussion. Class was entirely lecture, fast paced, with little time to process the information. Fortunately, the video is available for me to review, to try to grasp the information upon review. The class would be more suited for a Stitches at Home weekend, while allowing time for actual practice with putting some repeat patterns together.....
