comment on a recent survey

I am constantly amazed by the quality of the teaching that happens at CraftStudies. We are so lucky to have the opportunity to meet such amazing artists who are also willing to share their experiences with us through teaching.

What did you like most about the course?

Made many beautiful pieces of pottery!! Who knew?

Most was that I feel like I learned things I would find hard to learn from a book or the internet. Like how it

Please rate the overall quality of instruction? Excellent, good, fair, poor.

Excellent - Kerstin is so knowledgeable & patient, & presents the material very clearly.
Excellent - one of the most helpful classes I have taken!
