The class was great! We had 8 people in our class and were split into 3 groups so we got a good amount of time with our instructors. There’s a good amount of teamwork involved and the process requires slower, fluid motions - not what I expected walking in. We learned about the glass, the process, leaden about a few different techniques, made flowers and then made pumpkins. At the ends the instructors made a pumpkin inspired vessel for fun - cool to see them in their element, they make it look quite effortless. I haven't event picked up my pieces yet, but already want to go back for another class!

Teaching: Excellent Subject: Interesting Skill Level: Presented a challenge, but was not above all the students to master. Comments; I would take more courses in glassblowing. Nancy Rickman

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
