    Grainne is a wonderful teacher! It was my second class that I took on craftcast with her -both were fabulous! Her instructions are easy to follow and videos make it clear as to what steps to take.
    Looking forward to another class with her! ~Lena P.

    As usual, CraftCast delivered again! Grainne was a great instructor and gave me several new tips to use in the future. Alison always asks the best questions. The class was very well planned and easy to follow. I'm making a couple of the seashore pendants for Christmas this year and feel very qualified to do so after watching the class.
    This was not my first and definitely won't be my last CraftCast class. ~Dona M.

    It was great! ~ Barbara F.

    I love these tutorials, though I find it odd that I'm in the UK log onto a North American site that is then live from the UK, it's a mad world but cool at the same time.
    I just need the price of silver clay to drop a bit more and I'll definitely be doing more creating. ~ Pip B.

    I really enjoy Craftcast live webinar classes because they give me access to teachers from across the world. I've now taken two classes by Grainne Reynolds and I really enjoyed both but more importantly, I learned new things from both classes. Having the video downloads to refer to in the future is very helpful. They allowed me to enjoy the classes in the moment without worrying about taking notes. ~ Susan F.
