The venue wasn't great. Small separate rooms with (what seemed) children's chairs. No windows. The additional material cost was $85 which I thought was quite steep for the amount of glass that was provided. The class itself was fun, interesting and I liked the teacher overall, but I wouldn't do it again (at that location). I've done other classes that were housed in much better settings.

Way too many people in this type of class. I don’t think anyone left with the completed project and the only ones close had a knitting background. Also just put the materials charge in the class charge.

The class content and experience was good! However, the instructor was a little chaotic and ran between our class and helping her husband get set up in a Mixology class he was teaching down the hall. Her absence in doing that was a little disruptive to the flow of the Tarot class. That was the only drawback.
