Not for me it's not the cleanest place for everyone to be blowing into a pipe with no option to clean it after each person. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly

The teacher and assistant were great and the format was excellent. We had all the equipment and space we needed to do all of the exercises. All the materials and tools were provided at just the right moment with an extraordinary array of choices of color and gas types. It was an amazing class taught by thorough professionals!

I've taken a few classes at Brooklyn Glass and every one of them has been great. The instructors are obviously knowledgeable and do a great job teaching and helping everyone along with the projects, while still letting the students make their pieces their own way. Glass Implosions was awesome! Learned how to do a technique I've always admired in stores. Would totally recommend this and all their other classes.

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!
