Had a great day playing with molten glass under Anna's expert guidance. Highly recommended, especially in this digital age where we rarely partake in the visceral creation of something. And you get to take home things!


Attended: Glass Menagerie

The class was canceled due to low enrollment. I was given credit towards another class.

Attended: Introduction to Glassblowing: Tumblers Glasses

Really enjoyable class- instructor gave a brief rundown on the history of glass and rules rules/safety in the studio, then quickly got us on our feet and into the fire as it were. I'd definitely recommend this class.

I was going to be an hour late to the class so I called to see if it was worth going. An employee, Hanna, was so helpful. She told me it would be okay bc they would make sure I caught up with what I missed in the first hour and she did. She was great about it. The instructor Daniel was kind in accommodating me too. They were easy going and made it enjoyable.

Attended: 6 Week Sunday Morning Glass

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.

The class fulfilled my expectations. Teachers were great at instruction and made the learning fun. They were knowledgeable and able to give us intimate instructions since the class size was small enough.
