Great place to learn about modern fabrication techniques. Jamyn is an excellent teacher and a lot of fun to discuss projects with.

I learnt a lot more than from Youtube videos. It was more in context and it helps being able to ask questions, focus on what I wanted to know and do, and see the equipment and materials in action.
