    The workshop was informative and efficiently run. The split workshops were a great idea. However, it was difficult to hear my instructor at times because the groups were too close together. I would have enjoyed a chance to hear more input from the second presenter but we ran out of time.

    Hi Everyone, I'm so glad you all found this class as I think you won't be disappointed! These two guys have gotten positive reviews since they started with us at the library a year/half ago. Please go to the LOWER LEVEL when you enter the library. Big stairs to the left after entering the Grove street entrance. There will be signs for the class. See you there, Donya
