Very good class with knowledgeable teacher. Although it is quite intensive, need to concentrate on the fiddle bits. I didn't quite finish the Bear. Feel it would have been better to have 3 sessions of 2.5 hours instead of 2 sessions of 3 hours.

I enjoyed making my memory bear but was very disappointed that I didn't have time to finish it. I also felt that I requested support from Anna more than I really needed because I was very conscious of the time restraints. I feel that this workshop should be offered over three weeks for slightly less time each week, maybe two and a half hours each week. I would have preferred to attend three weeks and left the proud owner of one finished memory bear that I had completed myself. As usual Anna was very supportive and made the workshop very enjoyable. Thank you Anna.
