Instructors were very gracious, and adept at conveying their artistry with such a captivating medium. I was always intrigued by the beautiful objects inside the glass; now I know how they got there! I would love to come back often, unfortunately for me, distance makes that too difficult. My expectations for this class were by far surpassed, so if anyone reading this is indecisive you won't be disappointed. I did it at 70 and learned more than expected while enjoying the experience. Thanks Mike and David, for a such great educationally and artistically enriching day.

This class was great. The teacher and TA were patient and so helpful. I will def take another class with them!


Attended: One-Day of Neon

Overall, I enjoyed the course, but it was definitely more demonstration-based than experiential. The amount of time I spent actually bending Neon totaled about 5-10 minutes. The other 4 hours and 50-55 minutes were spent learning about Neon and watching the instructor complete some pieces.
