Together with our community, Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan creates opportunities for people to
connect, grow, and learn within an ever-changing Jewish landscape.
Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan imagines Jewish life that is diverse and engages meaningfully with
its values, culture, and ideas in our everyday lives.
Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, while we are a Jewish community center, nothing about our art classes are religious and all are welcome in our building at all times.
Perhaps two teachers or some visual tutorials to refer to during the class would have been helpful. I think Karen was stretched a little thin with multiple students asking her questions and wanting one on one time at once. She was very friendly and competent though and handled the class well.
Rebecca was a great instructor. The class is very relaxed and you have a lot of freedom to create what you want.
It’s basically open studio time
This clan was very fun, and I ended up with a beautiful scarf at the end! A things to keep in mind: first, you’re working with dyes, so wear old clothes! Second, these scarves need to be set with steam for a few hours, so you won’t be able to take yours home immediately. You’ll be able to either pay Suzanna a few dollars to have it mailed to you, or you can pick it up at her home.
Karen is great at explaining and guiding the class into practice. Everything she covered was relevant and to the point, and she did a great job at teaching the maximum possible in the 2 and a half hours we had. The only place where I see room for improvement is that there's no follow up class. Me and several participants were convinced that at least two classes should be the minimum to really be able to get comfortable with practicing the basics, and would be happy to pay the cost.
Really loved it. Wish there was a follow-on class. I liked just having one class to initially commit to to see if I would like Knitting, I do, and now don't want to lose what I have learned, nor our great teacher, and want to do more soon (before I forget the basics I am trying to practice).
Karen is a very talented teacher. Upbeat, encouraging and knowledgeable.
Really enjoyable class! You will pick up some great skills and have plenty of time to complete several pottery pieces. There is a nice, easy going dynamic in the class and all participants & the instructor were really friendly. I highly recommend!
This is a good first class or for someone who is returning to knitting after years of not knitting. I enjoyed the instructor's relaxed teaching style and the reinforcement of concepts. She also made sure we mastered a stitch before moving on to something new. She was professional, informative and friendly. I just wish the class was longer than one 3 hour session. Maybe think of extending it to a series of weeks.

Absolutely terrific...MARIKA so well organized..everything ready to go from the minute class started and she progressed in such a way (using wet on wet and offering explainations for how to connect so as to see the colors mixing or to place colored circles a bit apart so as not to mix colors) that as we moved from one project to another, she referred back to those earlier moments. She walked around many, many times and was always available to answer questions. It was a trial class and the follow up full course is at night. A couple of us have called the JCC raving about the class and we had other friends who would be interested in such a course also call or email asking that such a course be offered during the day....would be popular for older students.
