See what some of them have to say.
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.
