Larianne is a Great teacher and has a lot of patience.
I’ve been trying to learn how to crochet on my own and I wasn’t getting no where, so I got in contact with Larianne and she meet me at Barnes and Nobles for a crochet class. She showed me different crochet patterns and different crochet hooks. She showed me how to crochet. Thanks to her I can make different crochet items.
Larianne was very helpful and I can’t wait to see her again to see what else she can teach me.
Agnes
Larianne is a fantastic teacher. She started teaching me back in 2017, and because of her, I have my Etsy job. I make baby blankets, infinity scarfs and kids Hood Hats. My client loves the result. I had the chance to participate in many of her craft shows, and the experience was terrific. Her passion for crochet became an inspiration to me. Now I love to crochet and do many things for my daughter and me. Right now, I am working on a full-size blanket, and Larianne is helping me getting the pattern right. I wish I can show pictures. Thank you very much, Larianne.
Elise
I have purchased several crocheted items from Larianne for my family and fell in love with her vlog snippets on Instagram so when she mentioned that she’d be offering lessons, I didn’t hesitate to sign up! As a teacher, she has been incredibly patient and very supportive. In just a few lessons I was able to start a scarf for my sister’s baby girl. Thank you so much Larianne for sharing your gift with us. I’ve told all my friends that they need to sign up! :)

Thank you Amy. The lesson was absolutely wonderful! One thing though, as I was trying to take notes, the information coming at me started coming at me too fast. It was like a whirlwind came flying just over my head. But I did manage to catch much of it. Good stuff.

Are you new to Photoshop and need some help getting started? No Problem. It is a wonderful program that is very intuitive once you know where things are. I know how intimidating it can be at first to learn a new program because I continue to learn new ones myself. i am very patient and happy to help.

Basic functions for Photoshop include cropping rotating moving images around and then taking photos and manipulating them suddenly so that they don’t look manipulated. In addition, you can learn the best practices for preparing photos for the Internet or for print. I adjust my approach to teaching as I get to know you as a student and what learning style works best with you.

I had a great time and learned a lot painting with Sharon. This was my first painting lesson. She is patient, helpful and very passionate about watercolors. She is also very knowledgeable and answered all my questions.

Sharon was my introduction to watercolor painting! Her suggestions were very helpful. Her depth of knowledge and experience were stimulating and lead me to read and research artists and concepts. She was patient with this novice, and I look forward to more lessons.
