Carolina is one of the most amazing and caring instructors I have ever met. Her class is fast paced but I have learned so much in the little time that I have been with her. She also has such a bright and fun personality.

Great, hands-on class. Carolina was very clear, patient and inspiring and gave individual guidance to each student since we were on different levels. My only suggestion is to include a guide or handout on steps so we'd know what's coming next so we can keep it in mind as we're doing each step.

Carolina is such a wonderful instructor. I'd never tried any type of jewelry-making before, so it was a little intimidating to jump right into metalsmithing, but Carolina was able to give me hands-on experience at a pace that works for me straight from day one. I've completely fallen in love and want to continue learning!

This was a really fun class to take: Carolina is a warm and inviting instructor, and she was amazing at circulating through the shop to attend to everyone as they moved through their personal/class projects. Carolina was flexible and open to student ideas about what they wanted to make, even as she made a point of teaching the basics. In this class, I had the opportunity to learn to cut metal, attach metal to metal, polish, grind, wax-carve and cast (though this process is outsourced). I made a cut metal pendant, a cast ring, and a pair of earrings. I did not have enough time to learn to set a stone, though I could have if I finished my other projects more quickly. I disliked that I was left with a LOT of leftover materials. They are very expensive and I didn't use most of the materials (metals and saw blades) that I was asked to purchase for the class. I also wish that I had finished the class with a stronger understanding soldering (I didn't get to try it, just got to watch Carolina do it). I loved that it was such a small class, and that we shared the workshop space with her other, more advanced students. She played great music (Prince, R+B, soul) each week, and made it a convivial space. Carolina was also very accommodating of students needing to reschedule missed classes. In short, I'd recommend this class for someone who is interested in trying their hand at introductory jewelry making, especially if you don't want to invest in your own tools.

Her knowledge and expertise is wonderful, but it's her attitude and positive encouragement along the way that helps bring out your creativity and willingness to explore and learn. I would definitely recommend her class to anyone interested in dipping their toes into jewelry and metalsmithing!
