Past Student Reviews:

“Macy has such a great personality for making it OK to just try things out without worrying about making it 'perfect.'”

“In addition to her genteel personality, Macy was prepared with lots of inspiring examples and ideas she showed to us.” 

“Macy has a nice, teacherly manner and quickly created a comfortable environment, which is important in a short workshop. The book format she presented is interesting and flexible. She clearly explained and demonstrated the material and was open to all questions. The handouts were helpful, too.”
