Question from Anonymous
My wife is so interested making macarons at your workshop. However, she has a language barrier in terms of following the instructions. Therefore, I am willing to come with her together in the classroom. Do I need to purchase two seats in order for me to come in with her? Even in the case just stand next to her for translation? Please let me know!
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hello, there! You would need to purchase 2 seats so you can assist your wife in the class. Hope this helps.

Loved this class. All of the instructors were super knowledgeable, kind, and easy to follow. Loved that we were given some freedom to be creative, AND we got to leave with a bunch of delicious cookies!
