Student Comments

“I have taken several metal clay classes from Lyle at the Glass Craft show in Las Vegas. She has beginner to experienced students and is very patient with all of us! She is extremely organized in her demo materials, student materials, instructions, and processes. She gives individual attention to all students. It is these things and her great personality that keep me coming back for more, as Lyle is one of the instructors I look for when searching for new classes.” Miriam D, Gilroy, CA

“This woman artist is a teachers' teacher. Lyle is so extremely prepared, organized, understandable, and fun. She conducts such a wonderful, creative adventure.” Jill S, NV

“Lyle is a super teacher. She is organized and patient, and shows us how she recommends accomplishment. Lyle is a very competent and wonderful lady. She has opened the door to many projects for me and has taught and exposed me to so much. She is the best!” Rhonda M, NV

“I took my very first metal clay class with Lyle and continued on and got my Art Clay Instructor Certification under her guidance. From the beginning, Lyle was informative and patient, so that even someone like me, who had never worked with metal clay, was able to follow her instructions and have the confidence to finish the project and want to learn more.” Yolanda B, Tucson, AZ

“I took two metal clay classes from Lyle at a Jewelry Retreat in Houston, Texas. Lyle is an excellent teacher. Her instructions are clear and well presented. I made several beautiful pieces with her encouragement and constructive criticism. With the ground floor knowledge and experience I received from Lyle, I have successfully continued my adventures with metal clay. I will definitely take additional classes with Lyle if the opportunity presents itself.” Terrie B, Corpus Christi, TX

“I have had extensive training in jewelry and have also received my associate, bachelors, and masters degrees in other areas of study. Lyle has, by far, been the best teacher from whom I have ever received training. She is patient and understanding with all of her students. She takes time to help those who struggle and challenges those who are more skilled. She is highly trained and skilled in metal clay, which is reflected in her teaching.” Jennifer G, Tucson, Arizona

“Lyle was wonderful….instructive and knowledgeable, and took time to help each student. She is patient and enthusiastic and helped me get over my fear.” Regina H, Las Vegas, NV
