Past Student Reviews:
“This made me want to go on to the Core classes.”
“Robin has a very nice, easy teaching style. He was helpful and met everyone where they were, explaining things thoroughly while still allowing the students to figure things out for themselves.”
“Robin did a great job of giving us a basic overview of the equipment in a short amount of time, while giving us plenty of time to explore (and play with) the materials & start printing.”
