What students have to say about this class:

"Bob and Lee Ann made everyone feel comfortable. The workshop was well organized and the step by step teaching made it easy for everyone to understand and follow through. Demonstrates by teaching "hands-on" so everyone can get involved and remember the process. Learned different style of concrete stamping and staining and how to detail the work. The detailing and cleaning process is very important for the product to be above all others (competitors). Use of different stamps and blending with using acid staining. The workshop was very informative, therefore, we will be attending the next class, Skim Coats, Stains and Dyes." --Alan Hinahara, Hawaii

“Since I’m just starting, I was apprehensive about working with concrete.  However, after taking this course, I’ve gained a significant level of confidence and look forward to the challenges ahead.  I still have a lot more to understand, but at least now, I’m not as afraid to take on the CONCRETE MONSTER”!.....Matthew L. Joseph

“The Stamped Concrete instruction I just received was “OUTSTANDING”!  Not only is Bob the Decorative Concrete Guru, but his skill as an instructor is “A PLUS”.  The hands on activity is definitely the way to learn this skill.  The facillit6y is great, the hospitality couldn’t be beat, and in my opinion, everyone who does Decorative Concrete NEEDS to attend a Bob Harris Training Program”!  …..Steven Kaleita
