Learned a ton!

Madeleine provided great instruction and encouragement! I learned so much, and found the design carving to be relaxing. I love the cute print I produced.

Great experience!

I enjoyed the small size of the class and that it was laid back. Madeleine was a great teacher and really helped to guide you to learn and have a piece you could be proud of at the end. I'm excited to learn more!

Loved it!

This class was really informative and fun! Madeleine is a great teacher. I like that the class was small, and we each got individual attention and help when printing so we were all able to take home prints we’re proud of.

Amazing class!

Madeleine was a great teacher, and the process was so fun to learn! I am a true beginner and had low expectations for my print, but with her guidance and help, it turned out super cute and I'm actually quite proud of it!9
