Q: What does Base Lesson Cost mean?
A: Each lesson is priced for one student (adult or child) via Zoom for the time duration included in the class description. Class costs are adjusted slightly for group lessons, depending on the desired number of attendance. Some class times are adjusted as well for larger groups. Contact Elizabeth Lassing for a quote if you are interested in a group lesson.
Q: Are your classes for kids, teens, or adults?
A:These classes are for everyone. Each class has a suggested minimum age based on the difficulty of the class, but no matter the age of the student, each class is customized to support the student's age and previous skill set.
Q: I don't have any of the materials I need for a class. What do I do?
A: For your Zoom class with Elizabeth Lassing, you have two options: Upon signing up for your class, Elizabeth Lassing will provide a list of necessary materials which you can purchase offline or at your local craft store. Or, you can request for Elizabeth Lassing to create a lesson kit to be mailed to you at a small extra cost.
Q: My child is interested in one of your classes but doesn't meet the suggested age. Can my child still sign up?
A: Yes, as long as there is an older individual (adult, sibling, etc) available for assistance during your child's lesson. The suggested age is based on the technical difficulty of the class, such as using pliers to make tight loops. To ensure a positive learning experience for your child, arrange to have an aid in with your child during the class to help however needed.
Q: Do you teach in person classes too?
A: Absolutely. Anyone who lives within a 30 mile radius of Ithaca, NY can request an in-person lesson or group class. Materials are provided for all in-person meetings! Class costs will be quoted for you to reflect in-person lessons. Contact Elizabeth Lassing to request an in-person class.
Q: Do you teach anywhere else?
A: Yes! Elizabeth Lassing is also on Outschool. If your child is already on Outschool and would like to take a jewelry class with fellow Outschool students, check out Elizabeth Lassing's class offerings there!
