Pros : 1 day in length- allowed out of towners to attend Cost reasonable Great instructor!! Think I have learned enough to begin trying work on my own.
Cons : Perhaps a list of good references or books or videos to assist when we try again on our own.
Other Thoughts : Loved this class. I live about 2 1/2 hrs away so tough to come to classes. But I will watch for more 1 day classes to take in the futire.
