I wasn’t able to attend the class due to an emergency and let them know day of. While this is completely my fault, it would be nice to be able to receive a discount off my next purchase of the same class, as I would still love to attend!

My husband and I loved our course. Brooklyn Glass is a great facility with a very personable and safety conscious staff. We had a lot of fun and walked away with 2 wonderful pieces each. We can’t wait to take another course at Brooklyn Glass.

We had a lovely time taking this course! The instructors were so informative, and we got to make a couple projects in the allotted time. We felt like we learned a lot and were so mesmerized about the glass blowing process. Jessie was great, and we would recommend this experience to anyone!

It was a fun class, I like how it’s a small group per teacher, per assistant teacher where you get the needed attention to make a finished product you’ll be happy to take home.

The class was fun as a beginner. There were three instructors, only one instructor was super nice and super patient. The main instructor wasn’t very nice (kinda mean, and had attitude).

It was a great environment because the class size is small. The staff there is very patient and positive that guides you along the way. They understand practice makes perfect and due to the small class size, you get a good amount of practice and get a good amount of handmade [by you] pieces to take home.

Great, extremely friendly staff, which is very comforting when working with such an intimidating product. Super informative and fun class, would definitely recommend to friends! Considering coming back for other glass-related courses.
