Want to review this course?

I enjoyed my course with Jasper so much. He was really knowledgeable and eager to share his skills. He is a great teacher and I have recommended him to several friends already.
I came away with an elm bark container that I was extremely proud of and the skills to be able to create more in the future.
I will be back to take a different course later in the year.
