Will he teach a complex flower murrini like in the first bead on your site? Or at least demo it? I wish the second class was flower murrini class instead of butterfly murrini but if the first class could at least show us how he does that amazing complex looking flower stuff he does like no other I might fly cross country just for that!

Hi Suzan,
Yes, he taught that last year, and he'll teach that flower murrini this year, all I have to do is ask him. Aki is really neat that way.
I wish every class could be custom tailored to every person, but the best thing is to just get to the class with the artist you want to learn from and start to pick their brain.
I'll get him to teach the flower murrini again, like I said he taught it last year, he did a yellow one.
Best Regards,
Lance
