This workshop is a great combination of inspiration and explanation! I love the potential of this simple process that can lead in many, many directions. I will definitely be incorporating more alternative materials into my own work after taking this workshop!

Pre set-up was well planned and organized; class notes were thorough with visual and written directions - very clear.  Anastasia spoke clearly and loudly for all to hear.  She had an excellent sense of humor, she knew that problems could come up and knew how to handle them. Anastasia was an excellent teacher - knew when to correct, encourage, and give students time to process instructions.

It was very satisfying to leave wearing earrings and a necklace that I had made! The instruction was so thorough that I feel I’m capable of making more jewelry on my own.

What a fabulous workshop! Anastasia is energetic and uplifting, while giving very thoughtful instruction. Her enthusiasm was wonderful and she opened my eyes, as a weaver, to a different and fascinating world of weaving!

​It is somewhat rare to take a hand-on class and have everyone take away a finished product that pleases them so well. The compliments we received as we proudly wore our work through the conference reflect highly on Anastasia's teaching and inspiration skills. We hope she will teach more in our area!

​The three-hour class produces a gorgeous and unique piece of jewelry, while the real treasure students take home is a set of new ideas and techniques for future exploration.

Completely clear, thorough instructions and demos. Great approach. She catches you getting it right. Very supportive. Available for personal help. Fun workshop.

​Anastasia provided a wonderful nurturing environment; shared knowledge of current weaving events, people in the field. She went around room commenting on student's work, but not obtrusively.

I liked the exposure to art design terms (e.g. unity, balance, emphasis), as well as weave structure analysis. I loved seeing the variety of student samples, including their different skill levels too. All eye openers.
