"I have been taking jewelry lessons at The Little Studio since January 2012. My first day in the studio, was also the first day I made my first piece of jewelry! I learned the craft by using all of the tools, and doing all of the steps required to complete each piece. No design is too complicated to make, and Vladimir always encourages originality and challenges your technical skills. It has been a wonderful experience to learn an art with someone who offers such mastery, patience, and joy for jewelry making. I treasure all of my hours and creations from The Little Studio."

"Vladimir Deming is a passionate, respectful, knowledgeable, and motivating teacher. Mr. Deming's class was extremely informative. I learned a great deal and was able to use the knowledge he gave me as the foundation to start my own jewelry company. He displayed great enthusiasm for jewelry making and a desire to share it with his students which was very inspiring. He demonstrated great knowledge of jewelry design - I felt I could ask him anything and he would have the answer! The level of support he gave was above and beyond. He would work with me outside the classroom to help me accomplish any piece so that I could finish my product. As a student, he had a profound impact on me. I credit him for teaching me the fundamentals of working with metals, soldering, and learning how to construct a piece of jewelry. He supported thinking outside the box, creating a unique design, and helped me to execute it. With such passion for jewelry making, he showed us the joy in the process of creating it. Thank you, Mr. Deming, for being such a wonderful teacher!" - Jenna K.
"I am a collector of Asian antique porcelains for twenty years. I took Vladimir's porcelain restoration training and found it to be really helpful. I have many ceramic pieces with some kinds of damages or defects. I applied the skills that I learned from the training to repairing these pieces and I can't believe what I am capable of doing now."

"Professor Vladimir Deming, teacher and friend, to one and all. He is surely classical, contemporary and modern in teaching techniques, all in one, for us, as students and successful entrepreneurs. Our exposure to Professor Deming is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. His courses rank high marks, both from the standpoint of knowledge and cutting edge tools, from ceramic restoration to jewelry design and production. Also, he is a molder of careers and creations. There is no limit to the educational doors he opens through his mind and hands. Always dedicated and interesting in his classrooms and labs. Certainly, never too busy to give more and more of himself to others. Ever so grateful, to have tasted his genius and worldly touch."
