Lynn Wagner's Published Work

Lynn picked great exercises and assignments and examples to use to teach a craft that was completely alien to me, and now that the class is over I feel like I have some tools to keep working with. She also had great energy and enthusiasm both for the craft and for all of us amateurs as we figured things out.
