The instructor, Mary Beth, was incredible. We sat in basically a circle formation as opposed to a standard classroom structure. This encouraged a high degree of participation among al involved. I learned so much not only from the instructor but from the other students as well. The students had diverse cultural backgrounds, professional backgrounds, experiences, goals and where at different stages of implementing their visions. I really enjoyed spending time with this group of individuals and wish that the class had more sessions so I would have had the opportunity to learn more from the instructor and other classmates. We all really clicked. I learned a lot and had so much fun.
Pretty good class. Learned a lot. Not a friendly atmosphere, though.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course. It got my creativity flowing again. This class can be used as an elective in part of a Styling Certificate program offered at F.I.T. if you wish to continue on.
The class wasn't as informative as I would have liked it to be.
Great class.learned a lot
Loved the class, I made two beautiful silver link braclets. The instructor, Garnet, was patient and informative.
The teacher was flexible and allowed us to use pur own dogs as models for our sample garment
This class was great. It was pretty beginner-friendly but a few people in the class had some experience and still enjoyed it. The teacher is fun and very helpful. I learned some great skills and plan to take the next level course. Make sure you can attend all of the sessions - there's no make-ups or absences allowed!
I was expecting something more into fashion e fashion brands, some actual examples, how to really do it into the fashion world. The class is kind of "old way". I enjoyed some parts of the class and could have an idea. It was good, nothing special.
Great informative class and amazing instructor.
