It was a really enjoyable and relaxed workshop. Amber was amazing, very kind and friendly. She explained in details what we had to do and didn't mind repeating herself more than once for those who were a bit slower in crafting. We even went a bit overtime but Amber was kind enough to keep going until everybody had finished. I would definitely recommend both the workshop and Amber.
