Past Student Reviews:

“Overall, it was a great experience.”

“Andy is an excellent instructor. He's knows the subject matter and communicates well.”

“Andrew taught an excellent workshop. He knows his sh*t!”

“I loved how Andy demoed, explained processes and then while we were working filled in all the little details of why things are this way but not that way, etc. He built enough time in for taking notes so we could go home and try the structures again on our own.”

“I also loved the samples he brought so we could see different box structures in action and understand why certain boxes are good for certain projects.”
