Unique Technique and a Fun Class

I thoroughly enjoyed this class! Alexandra is a wonderful, fun teacher--this is the second class I've taken with her and I would happily take more. The technique was totally new to me but easy to pick up during the course of the class. Alexandra offered lots of tips and tricks to get the best results which left me feeling prepared to tackle a larger project. And the sample that we made in class is beautiful!
