Any hand or machine class can be designed for your group or situation.  I am an experienced teacher that uses a hands-on, walk around approach.  I specialize in precision, rotary and machine techniques but can teach any hand or machine techniques.  I am used to teaching a variety of skill levels in each class.  I can make things challenging for the more experienced student while not swamping the beginner.  I can accept 20 - 24 students in each class.
