Wow! What an overload of information!

Elena doesn’t hold back anything - truly a sharing and positive person. Thank you so much! I am very happy with my own work and Elena’s guidance”. - Julie, Vancouver (attended: Fantasy Doll Class, Wings and Eyes).

Sculpting classes, that Elena presents - are the best classes I ever had in my life!

It is fun, lots of creativity. It is unbelievable, like magic. Elena, Thank you very much for great time I had, it really gave me good energy and sparkle of creativity”. - Yana, Boston (attended: Fantasy Doll Class, Beautiful Dark, Wings and Eyes)

It is a great blessing that I was able to attend Elena's class during my short visit to Toronto.

Not only do I admire her talents and creativity, I appreciate very much her patience and generous sharing of her skills in making a polymer fantasy doll. The doll I made during this two days workshop is a 10-inch figure. I experienced and was taught a lot of problem solving techniques in making such small feature. Elena also shared with me the the ‘make do’ techniques techniques if supplies are not available. Her creativity, sense of humor and warm personality have also made each of the dolls she made a real charm and they all communicate with her audiences with Elena's intended messages. - Tammy, Hong-Kong (attended: Fantasy Doll Class, Wings, Eyes)

I had my first workshop with Elena, "Wall Oh Ghost",

where we created a cute, special little figure inside a beautiful painted frame. I loved the details that Elena taught me, and because I am a beginner I can tell that this particular workshop was perfect to get me started on working with polymer clay. I know I still have a long way to go, but Elena's class really motivated me to learn more and I can't wait for my second workshop, which will happen in August. I highly recommend "The Wall Oh Ghost"; and I loved everything about it!- Juliana, Toronto (attended Wall-Oh-Ghost class)

I attended a Beautiful Dark Class with Elena.

I have been to other workshops, but this was just breathed the inspiration into my creative beginnings. I learned a lot and however I was sad when the class finished I couldn't wait to get back home to start designing a doll on my own. Thank you, Elena, I will be back for sure! - Marcia, Richmond Hill (attended Beautiful Dark class)

I though of myself as a beginner sculptor

and after taking Elena's workshop, my sculpting ability is above an intermediate level. I took Elena's Fantasy Doll Sculpting Class and it was amazing. Elena unraveled all the mystery of sculpting, painting and wigging a doll. I would highly recommend her classes for doll makers of all levels! - Gina, Toronto (attended: Fantasy Art Doll Class)
