Was very good at showing us each of the steps, and was very good at answering our questions. Enjoyed the class very much!

This was such a fun and unique experience. I love crafting, and I found it very rewarding, not only making something whole again but also making it more interesting than before. The kit is so efficiently packaged and includes everything needed for the craft, including a practice broken piece. Alexandra was very engaging, and her passion for this craft is evident! I’m excited to continue practicing so that I can make a special broken item of my own new again!
