Virtual Workshop Testimonials



Recent Praise for our new Patterned Mirror and Glass Workshop.

Melanie, the Webinar was wonderful, just like your videos and manual. It is so generous of you to take so much time to explain things so clearly. This workshop is way above and beyond what I expected - and the course fee is really very, very reasonable, considering all that we are getting in return. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful learning experience. You are a superb teacher and artist. -Mano Venkatraman

Just finished my first time watching the workshop and I could not stop for even a break, I was so glued to the screen with my mind going 90 miles an hour. Melanie you have an amazing gift and a beautiful may of teaching in an understandable way. I can’t wait to start making my own samples. I would like to know if you have any information on how to price a job using this type of application. -Kathy McFrancis

Great, economical way to learn. Videos filled with tips we wouldn’t know without trial and error. Thanks so much! I will definitely be purchasing other video instruction from you in the future. -Joy Conway

Thanks again Melanie for creating these webinars. For Eastcoasters especially they are incredibly convenient and of course inspiring. -Denise Rusoff.


Praise for our original Virtual Workshops: Foilin' Around and Stencil Impressons.

Just finished Melanie's Virtual Workshop. It was great!! It was just like we were there. As usual, Mel gives mor than I expected for something like this. The foils are awesome in their own beauty!! Didn't realize they could add so much to a finish. -Janet Gonzales

Loved it!!! Awesome job Melanie! Looking forward to many more; very inspiring! THANK YOU!!! -Denise Lindstrom

I have already learned alot from the videos and can't wait to play around with some of these finishes. I really also appreciate the chance to purchase these items at this great rate. Thanks again for putting this together and I'm sure I'll be taking your future virtual workshops. -Mignon Hunter

I loved, loved, loved this innovative virtual class!  No matter how much you think you know about this business, there is always something new to learn -- and I learned so much from this session.  We've already reproduced several of the finishes with great success.  The videos were clear and concise and beautifully filmed and the supporting documentation was detailed and completed the experience.  This was definitely worth my time and I'm looking forward to the next -- Stencil Impressions.  Thank you Melanie for always being such a great source for knowledge and inspiration. -Barb Skivington/Faux Works

Thanks so much for all the work you put into the Foilin' Around virtual workshop.  And it's obvious that you put a LOT of work into that class. I've always been an admirer of your innovative finishes and your ability to describe the techniques so well in person and in writing.  The virtual workshops take your talents to a whole new level, and I'm pleased to have been a participant in your first virtual workshop. I'm glad you decided to have students in future workshops view the videos in advance of the online discussion. When I viewed the videos I did have some questions, but I found the answers in your Power Point presentation.  But still, I found the real-time online discussion to be interesting and informative. Thanks for all you do in the world of decorative finishing. -Kate Kiernan

I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the webinar yesterday.  The video quality was great, the presentation was well thought out and the content extremely detailed.  I was able to get inspired without leaving my home! I thoroughly enjoyed it and I can't wait to begin using these techniques!!! I am already planning on participating in your other webinars. -Jamie Kyle
