Eric was a really great instructor. Really enjoyed the workshop. Eric was extremely knowledgeable, but also laid back and very friendly- a nice combination for a teacher. I think the class should be no more than 6 people or there should be a larger area to work in. Wish there were a workshop to work on a little larger format as an intermediate step.

Eric did a fantastic job teaching the class. He was friendly, thorough, and hands-on. Everyone's project came out well as a result. We also had a small class which helped. I would definitely take another version of this that went past the basics.

Great class! Very relaxed and easy going, yet hands-on. I am excited to have learned enough about silkscreening to create my own pieces and I will be exploring this fun medium further in the future. Thanks!
