Did I watch the youtube video on wire wrapping. Was I confused? Did I have tons of questions? Yes. This class is so superior. First the camera angle, I could actually see what she was doing and the results. Second the information on what sizes of wires to use with what. And also information on things that can go wrong and why they went wrong.
This is not good timing for me to do the work but the video will be there when I am ready. But things were so well explained, I can do ...
Max is a great teacher. Material is very well organized, logical, and she shows things clearly. This is my first Craftsy class, I'm just not one to take video courses... but this one has changed my mind! I've discovered that I love working with jump rings; who knew?
