"I did the combo beadmaking course with Jo at her studio. I had a great time learning some new skills and having fun! Jo is a great teacher, explains things really well, and encourages your creativity. I got my beads after they had been in the kiln, and was really happy with the results. I would definitely recommend learning beadmaking with Jo."
