The class was absolutely amazing! The instructor was fantastic, we had a blast but the only issue I had was more than half the class showed up late and it held up the rest of us because they had to catch up and then we were rushing the rest of the time to finish our projects. I would recommend some type of rule that anyone later that 15 after cannot join in.
