I enjoyed the music very much and the videos were visually appealing. I would recommend this series to anyone wanting to explore their creativity, especially in regards to finding inspiration in nature- beginners and seasoned block printers alike! emily is an exceptional teacher and keeps the tone light, fun, and engaging. Anyone that’s never done block printing before will be able to do so with confidence after watching her classes. The video quality is excellent and I also love the soft background music.

Someone who has never tried drawing from nature or blockprinting would be able to successfully finish a project after taking this class.
