    I loved this workshop! Erna is an encouraging and patient teacher and made the whole process really simple. The whole experience was so meditative. It was nice having something I made to take home at the end of the class, I've already had compliments on it and it makes me happy whenever I see it. I'm looking forward to going back and making something else
