"My daughter and I had such a great time taking a block print tea towel class. Now, I'm making favors for a shower that I'm helping to host. I am so certain everyone will love their handmade kitchen towel. Thanks to Joslyn, I'm saving money and putting my creativity into some very special gifts. We look forward to taking another class next time I am in town. It's so wonderful empowering people to learn new things." -Lynda L.
"Joslyn is such a warm, kind and patient teacher, and it's clear that she truly loves what she does! I've been to three different workshops, and with each one I walked away with a beautiful piece that I've displayed in my home or proudly given as a gift. I also discovered how much I love weaving - and I've made 3 more wall hangings using the loom I got during her workshop! " -Sam H.
"As a creative person, I am always seeking spaces to explore a new craft with like minded people and continuously seeking opportunities to learn something new. Joslyn creates an open and inspiring atmosphere which promotes creativity and exploration for participants of all skill levels to join in. I loved learning new embroidery stitches and the intimate atmosphere enabled me to ask several questions while I explored a new art form. The cocktail pairing was an added bonus, and I am obsessed with all of the symbols on my embroidery...especially the sashimi and the pizza :) I cannot wait to take another workshop to continue to learn new crafts with Joslyn!" -Erica L.
"I have now been to 5 J.Villa Workshops and have LOVED every single one of them. The beautiful thing about J. Villa Workshops is that there is a place for everyone. From the person who considers themselves a full time artist to the individual who has never tried a craft project, J. Villa Workshops can be fun for you. During my first workshop, I learned to embroider. I left with a work-in-progress but I was so excited to finish the project that I was finished with it 2 days later. I was hooked and now have skill that I have already continued to use making several gifts for the holidays already! After the first lesson, I kept coming back for more. Even if you repeat a skill you have learned, the benefits are endless. I have been to five new places in the city I had never been previously, created a new memory with old friends and also acquired new friends. Joslyn is an amazing resource. She makes crafting fun and accessible. Looking forward to my next workshop!" -Brittany G.
