This course was not at all what I expected. It focused on materials and tools and where to obtain them. Technique was barely covered at all. There were several references to different YouTube channels and blogs, most of which I have already visited. I was hoping for some original content on techniques and how-tos. Unfortunately, because I continued to watch, hoping for something of substance, this is not eligible for refund. The content is good for an absolute beginner that needs to be told how to do and where to purchase the most basic supplies.
