Thank you for the wonderful class, Carol! The progression we made through the different braids was great, each new change seemed very logical and smooth, which made learning each new one fun! You are great at creating a very relaxed atmosphere for learning, in addition to making all of us fall in love with our maru dai! I would love to take a class from you again. I will keep checking for the updates on your website.

I haven't enjoyed a class as much as this one in more than 5 years. The group was nice and your teaching methods are exceptional. I really have trouble following written directions, even more so when they are lengthy and technical. Your instructions and written booklet are so easy for me to follow.

I recently took one of Carol's classes and was utterly delighted. She was very thorough and imparted her wisdom graciously and fully. It was a wonderful class, and I learned quite a bit. I would take another class from her in a heart beat. I highly recommend her.
