We had 3 instructors, and only 1 of them (David) was very helpful and nice. Our 2nd project was candy dish, I was getting help from Dan - at the end of the project when he picked up my piece to put it into the holding place - it broke. He didn't care about, helping me out to do another one. When I asked him if something could be done - he just walked away to purchase himself coffee. Not really a class, I'll recommend someone to sign up to.

The 8 week class has turned into a 4 week class, because of low enrollment. The class is pretty good and the teacher is very knowledgeable and attentive. I wish this class was 8 weeks,but I was given credit towards my next class or studio time.

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!
