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!

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.

Instructors were very technically skilled, personally fun to work with, and very patient with us newbies.

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!

Class was a great introduction to glass blowing but keep in mind this is more about exposure to the process than learning how to make something on your own. I was very pleased with the two pieces I made with a LOT of assistance from a TA (who was super patient about listening to what I wanted the piece to look like). I found the TAs to be very helpful. If you are sensitive to heat wear long sleeves (or bring a tube sock) and dip your hand in the water before dipping your rod in the molten glass. Yes there is an oddly timed “lunch” break but it was nice to have a break from the heat and it’s unrealistic to think we could have made an extra piece during the lost time. Given the level of assistance necessary for each student I think the break is likely warranted for the instructors’ sake as well.

Loved the class! Great instructors and a truly awesome experience. It was so cool to walk away having made a glass bowl (with help)! The furnace is older and feels extremely hot when you get close to gather your liquid glass (apparently the furnace at Urban Glass is newer and not as painful to stand near). Wish the class provided gloves so that the melted glass didn’t feel so hot near our hands. Also wish they could ship our projects to us instead of having to go back to the studio to pick them up.

I loved loved this class. Started out learning the basics, and each class built on the previous one so we had a solid foundation. Could see serious improvement from week to week. Edgar is an excellent and patient instructor. Our class started out bigger, and occasionally I wished we had more space to work, as sometimes we were standing around waiting for a turn at the bench, but it became less of an issue as people dropped off. Really fun and challenging class.

There's a lot to like about this class, but it could use some tweaks. Pros: You get to make a few different items Very hands on--you may actually have enough exposure to glassblowing to decide if you'd like to pursue something beyond spending an afternoon in the glassblowing world Cons: The workshop isn't really set up for a class and can be really hard to hear the instructor, and you need to be careful you don't get poked by another beginner with molten glass You have to either go back the next day to pick up your items or pay extra to have them shipped Ideas: Hand out heat resistant gloves. I guess they aren't as BA, but for a newbie/someone just looking to spend the afternoon doing a fun activity, helpful. For a $200 pp price tag in a sweltering room, have water available

This was a great experience working with glass. I have never done anything like this before and I found it very easy to pick up. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who want to learn or try something new.

Really fun class, perfect size as there were 3 of us to an instructor and we each came away with three items. All the instructors have worked with glass for years and also are great teachers, and their enthusiasm was infectious. It was pretty incredible getting to work with molten glass!! It gets super hot so I'd imagine doing this in the cooler months would be best, but I highly recommend it. Definitely think about following their suggestion of cutting holes in a sweat sock to use as an arm shelf from the heat!!

This class was a lot of fun. It felt a little large at times but it was clear the instructors really loved teaching and made sure to not overload us with information. We had enough hands on work that you really working working with the glass yourself but they intervened enough that you were successful at it. Highly recommend it!

The glass blowing workshop at Brooklyn Glass was a great experience. The small class size (5 people in total) allowed us to be hands on all throughout the class. The instructor gave us an interesting history on glass and glass blowing, and demonstrated the steps of the process. We practiced the technique with the tools before handling hot glass many times until we memorized it and were comfortable with it. Both the instructor and the assistant gave us useful tips along the way that helped improve our technique and safety. Once we got working, we each made four glass flowers and a vase. We all worked together, but at times it felt like the instructor and assistant could have been guiding and supervising us more closely when we were on our own, especially since we were working with furnaces and glass that were 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. We wore protective glasses, but our skin reacted strongly to the heat without even directly touching hot surfaces. Bare arms and hands ended up red, splotchy and blistered. It wasn't painful, but it was uncomfortable. I felt like we should have at least been wearing gloves to protect our hands. The instructor also seemed to become impatient if we weren't doing everything exactly right. He could have had a more gentle approach, especially since this was our very first time working with glass. Overall it was a fun class with a few things that could be improved but I would recommend it.

The class was super interesting, but very long. The instructor had a very thick accent and it was loud in the studio so it was very difficult to hear him for the majority of the time. I also think they need to really have the students wear gloves or enforce wearing hand/arm protectors. Everyone in my class left with either blisters, or red blotches on their arm/neck from the extreme heat of the furnace. I don't know how safe that was for us to be working there unsupervised part of the time when the instructor and assistant were off helping someone else. Also, the instructor didn't seem to love being there or very excited about teaching.

I loved this class. I hesitated for a long time because of the cost, but I think it was worth it in the end. Our class ratio was 3 students per 1 teacher, which worked out ok, however, I would have preferred 2 to 1. You do have to spend some time waiting for your turn while the others go. The instructors were kind and supportive, patient, and positive. I appreciated their teaching style and all the help they gave me in creating my mug.
