The class was great and the instructors were friendly, professional, and genuinely seemed to like teaching. It’s a real introduction into glass blowing and we made paperweights and bowls. I just wish the class started on time - while I know they want to wait for latecomers, everyone else ends up waiting. Definitely worth the money and travel though!

The instructors were great and the experience so much fun. Best thing—you get to walk out with a very cool piece of neon art.

Absolutely wonderful class - if you're on the fence, stop considering and sign up! The time flies, it's a lot of fun. Course instructors are very friendly and informative. The shop puts safety first, but still keeps the class fun. I just got home, but am already thinking about signing up again!

Such a great class. Super hands on, interesting and at the end, you walk away with a working neon light. So great. Highly recommended!

Very fun class- thought it was a good intro to help you decide if it's something you might want to pursue further. It was structured very nicely - never felt too rushed. Loved that we got to take home an abstract neon piece and learned some basic bends and techniques.
