simple explanation of process. very well done.
I think this is a great workshop for beginners. Sometimes projects seem daunting and intimidating, but Kolbie encourages and walks you through each step of the way. I am amazed and very pleased with what I was able to create in the end!
Kolbie's teaching style is great, she's very approachable and breaks everything down so it's very easy to follow. Thanks Kolbie, had fun with this one!
