היה מדהים ללמוד מיהודית, מאוד ממליץ לכל מי שמחפש/ת העשרה/להתמקצע בתחום/להתפתח לעולם עולם לא נגמר של יצירה


Nadav Rudnick

הקורס של יהודית מתאים למתחילים וגם לכאלה שכבר העבירו פעם מקצוע על עץ. לא צריך הרבה כלים ומדובר בהנאה צרופה ,גם מורה מעולה וסבלנית וגם יוצרים משהו כיפי. ליותר מנוסים מדובר בעוד נדבך שניתן לשלב בהרבה מאוד מקומות בעבודת העץ וליצור חתימה אישית
