I loved this course, the instructions were laid out in clear, simple steps and once I understood the knotting technique the necklace made up very quickly. It was very satisfying to learn something new and my necklace is stunning - bold, bright and beautiful - just like the one in the picture! I would definitely recommend this class - you get everything you need in the box and can follow the course at your own pace. Looking forward to doing another course with Yodomo soon!
Absolutely loved creating this, something fun, funky and therapeutic! Would definitely recommend, easy to follow video tutorials. Also had lots of lovely comments about the end product
Lovely pack with everything you need to complete the make with ease. Clear instructions on how to make. My daughter has already claimed it as her own so must be stylish if she will wear it for work.
I thoroughly enjoyed this online course. The instructions were very clear and my finished product looked exactly like the shown example. I had never used this technique before and would certainly try another course from this provider
