  • The content was good but could not see some of the techniques. Maybe use of the overhead camera positioned over the work space would have helped. Overall a good class.
  • This class was ok and the most positive thing about it was the actual design of the ring, leading students to riff off the original design to create a design of their own. The supply list is not complete as it does not list sanding papers and grit sizes or sanding sticks. I realize there are a lot of techniques covered in other videos but it would have been helpful to have her give a short synopsis of said techniques for those who haven't seen the other videos (for example, polishing). I felt, especially at the end, that she wasn't really concerned about whether the student was exposed to those missing techniques; instead, she shrugged off the fact that there was no time left...go buy the other videos and watch them. There was also a burnishing tool that she referenced quickly and it would have been helpful to have more information about that tool.
