Past Student Reviews:

[What did you like most about the workshop?] “The creativity and uniqueness of the custom made box on the second day.”

“I love Andy’s teaching process. He makes a box right along with the students pointing out key techniques stopping at intervals for the students to copy his work. This back and forth works very well in the class.”
