Rehana was a great teacher, very patient and knowledgeable. The venue was also good. All materials were included and well set up. The class ran a bit over time as we were a bit slow with our designs but we were not rushed. We all really enjoyed making our batik fabric and will look to do another class with Rehana next year.
