Everyone was great! Loved the teachers @ Brooklyn Glass!! Definitely recommend the course to everyone!
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 is perfect for those who are curious about neon and want to get some hands-on experience. It's just enough to help you decide if you want to move on further. The teacher, David, is great and to say that he's knowledgable is a major understatement. Location was easy to get to from most parts of the city.
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.
The instructors were awesome and we had a lot of fun! Will definitely be back!
Class well taught by Suzi and Dave. Didn't expect to create as much as we did so that was a bonus. Very fun afternoon and finally got to try my hand at glass blowing.
David is a talented and passionate instructor. His confidence in the craft is inspiring. He had a good sense of humor and the first day was incredibly informative and invigorating. My only bit of feedback is that the second day of the course was a bit hellacious. He was teaching one-half of the class while the assistant was teaching the other half. They seemed to be on two different pages the entire time. Towards the end of the course when I needed help I stood around for probably 45 minutes waiting for help. It would be helpful to instruct the students to have a design prepared for the second day of class and be told immediately whether or not the design was viable to make the most use of an already short class.
Super informative and interesting class. My only request would be to have a better course schedule and more instructions as to when to stop and start projects and tasks. I'll be sure to visit Brooklyn Glass again soon!
It was an interesting class. Very intimidating process that eventually became easier. Glad I did it.
The workshop was amazing, very meditative and I'm now dying to take more courses at Brooklyn Glass. The teacher and tas, Susan, Ana, and Connie where all wonderfully skilled and patient and a joy to spend an afternoon with. I always felt safe and glad I read the email about using a tube sock to cover my arm. Take this course!!! Rudy Scala
