Excellent online class by Natalia. The structure of class easy to follow and the different camera angles helped to fully see what was required to complete the class. I found the box of supplies were generous and well labelled so it was easy to find exactly what you needed to complete the dyeing process on your own. Thank so much. I will be happy to do other classes with you. Bev
