Jody Alexander's instructions are clear and concise. She calmly orates making it that much easier to follow along.

This is a fun book structure! I really appreciate Jody Alexander's classes because she states her directions clearly, goes slowly, and repeats details to clarify each step of the way. I do wish she had been more specific about the paper (weight, etc.) Overall there is lots of room to experiment and play!
