Workshop Comments 


I had a 2-day class with Julie on her Mixed Media Technique and am thrilled with all that I learned. I came home with a finished product and the knowledge to repeat all the processes I learned in class. Julie is patient, well organized, and very knowledgeable.

Your class was outstanding - truly the best clay class I have taken.  You have tremendous knowledge and you are so willing to share your knowledge with others. You answered every question we had, and there were zillions of them. I would recommend your class to everyone - you are a pro! It was a joy to take your class.  In fact I would love to take another one.

Not only does Julie possess and in-depth knowledge of her craft, but she is equally proficient at providing clear and concise instructions. Julie is very patient and extremely informative. She made the class fun and relaxed, yet packed with lots of information.  Julie generously shared instructions for all the wonderful details of her designs. I have taken many classes in polymer clay and jewelry making, but Julie's was by far the best. I came away from her class with an abundance of knowledge and new information.

Julie is not only talented but also knowledgeable about all she is teaching.  She knows how to communicate, listen, project a thought process and cultivate one's creativity.  She knows her supplies and tools and how to best achieve the final product.

Julie Picarello is one of those rare teachers who combines knowledge, skill and patience and makes it look easy. When you leave her class you know you have a clear understanding of what was taught and enough information, materials and resources to get the project finished. I was more than fortunate to be able to take a class with her and it was pure joy from beginning to end. I'd take another class from her anytime I could!!

Julie's teaching style is very friendly and at the same time, very precise.  I appreciate being able to follow along with each step and was extremely pleased with my completed project.
