Here's what participants had to say about the last workshop:

" Deb's energy and humanity informs all aspects of her workshop. She is organized, sensible, and knowledgeable.  She sets a very supportive atmosphere for a diverse group of students. Her caring about individual students is rare."  - Mari Jalbing, Seattle WA

" Very balanced class - open to each person's ability and taking us on a very intense but useful 3 days. [The workshop experience] got me to try new things and think in a new ways." - Sue Lee, Kirkland, WA

" I feel that Deb was extremely well organized and led us through the course step by step.  The slide shows helped greatly to illustrate the points she made. I greatly enjoyed the workshop and learned a great deal. "  - Marilyn Sandau, Port Townsend, WA
