This was my first online class so I was unsure what to expect. The tutor Sonya was very friendly and helpful and obviously very skilled in her craft. Gold work is an intricate technique and requires precision and patience. Sonya explained how to work with three different types of thread and demonstrated with the work magnified so that we could see what she was doing. I feel confident enough to try out what I have learned.

Response from Thyme To Create:

Thank you Sally, it was a pleasure to meet you and introduce you to this beautiful technique. I'm glad you are feeling more confident and want to experiment more
