Thoroughly enjoyed the class. Sadelle explained the process really well and broke it down so the steps are easy to follow. I love the whole idea of Celtic knotwork being like roads and paths that we create. I found the whole process so relaxing and will enjoy exploring this process further. Thank you Sadelle!
Sadelle made it very easy to learn the foundation of interlacing and interlocking. The class segments are quick and effective. Will try the next class!
