I am absolutely delighted with Jen's video class. Her instructions are clear and concise, which makes it very easy to follow each step. After watching the video a couple of times I was ready to start on my first book. Jen's beautiful examples just make you want to plunge straight in ! I have now completed my first book and have started on a second one. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I really feel that I have learnt something magical . Thank you Jen !

An excellent video class!!
This is the first video class I have purchased and I must say I am absolutely delighted with it. Jen's examples of her beautiful etched metal books are so inspiring that I felt like I wanted to get making one straight away! Her instructions are clear and concise with just the right amount of information given at each stage, to enable you to complete each step. No annoying waffle and therefore no fast forwarding! I watched the video a couple of times and then started on my first book. I was able to follow along with Jen in almost real time I really like her easy style of presenting. I have now finished my first book and have started on a second one. I really feel that I have learnt something magical !! Many thanks to Jen, Review by Antonia (Posted on 6/9/2015)
Absolutely brilliant
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this class available to buy. I've seen this class advertised for ages overseas and wanted to do it so badly, but never thought I'd get the chance. I downloaded this right away and it is just as fabulous as I thought it would be. Absolutely clear instructions for anyone to be able to do, no experience necessary, and teaches you plenty of the skills you need to do mixed media metalwork. So, so happy with this purchase. I so hope she does more classes, although check it out, there are three other ones as well by Jen Crossley. Review by Vickie (Posted on 2/25/2015)
