Question from Katie U.
Anyone have a sense of how this glassblowing class is different from the other BG intro glassblowing course (same number of hours )?
Answer from S M G. Verified Student
I never took another course before this. I feel like I learned a lot in the amount of time I was there. I made 3 things, a tumbler, a bowl, and a paperweight. And none of them look like a child's art project from school! So we worked until the very end, not when we finished a project. There was time to do another, so we made another. Teachers were all nice and supportive.

The class was lots of fun and the instructors were all fantastic. I didn’t give 5 stars because I think there was a lot of wasted time for a “lunch break” and 1/2 demonstration which took place at the end of the day

Instructors were very technically skilled, personally fun to work with, and very patient with us newbies. The class was broken down into steps designed to gradually build on skill and use what was learned in each previous step. I loved the work, the process and the pieces i made. It was definitely great fun in a friendly supportive environment. Go Brooklyn Glass!

I am happy that I took this class. The instructors are very knowledgeable and patient and present the techniques in a way that makes it feel manageable. I was nervous at first but there is a lot of support from the instructors as you are learning the various steps. It was fun to learn something totally new and gain an appreciation for the intricacies of blowing and shaping glass.

Truth be told, I learned that glass blowing is not my forte. I found the class to be fairly stressful because I realized I have a fear of 2600 degree furnaces! That being said, the instructors, and especially David, were amazingly patient with my nerves and helpful throughout. The class size was small enough that I had a lot of one on one instruction. Miraculously, I left the class with an amazing and fully functional tumbler. Never been more proud of something I crafted!

Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience. The class consisted of a mix of demonstrations of what was possible with glass, hands on work creating glass objects and touring and understanding the facilities at Brooklyn Glass. I had no idea how glass blowing worked going in, and left with a very clear picture of the overall process. The instructor let us known early on that making a tumbler is a pretty advanced piece of glass blowing, and that he would be assisting a lot. This was certainly the case, but I was very happy with the amount of hands on work we got to do during this course, including learning how to gather and manipulate glass. You get up close and personal with several furnaces, so a high tolerance for heat is required. I left with a very beautiful paperweight and a questionably beautiful (but no less meaningful!) tumbler. I would position this class more as good way to see whether glass blowing is for you before signing up for the 8 week course. Given the price, it may be worth jumping directly into the 8 week course if you're confident you will remain interested.
