Another great Helen Driggs video Review by Phyllis
Rating

Clear instructions with good views of demonstrations. I have several of Helen's videos and she just makes a darn good instructor. My only complaint with this video is that there are a number of specialty tools needed, hammers, swage blocks, pliers etc. and personally I can't afford all those tools. So although the instructor is excellent this video was not very helpful to me personally at this time. Hopefully I can purchase the tools a bit at a time and then work on some of these ideas/techniques.

I personally are not up to this level yet, so this video is one of my goals. Helen is a very knowledgeable instructor who knows her subject very well. If you are ready to make your own spirals, tubes etc , this is a good place to start. I am glad I got the downloaded video as I can open it up and look at it whenever I have a few minutes to spare

Another excellent video tutorial from Helen Driggs. Her teaching style and knowledge of the subject make her an excellent instructor. It is an enjoyable experience to watch her demonstrations...she single handed put most metalsmithing schools out of business.

This is another GREAT video from Helen Driggs. Tons of information from a very gifted instructor. Helen is a lively teacher and a lot of fun to watch. I like her videos so much that whenever I'm feeling like a sedentary blob, I tune into a Helen video to get motivated and get out my tools. I LOVE every video Helen has made.
