  •   LOTS OF GREAT INFO FOR GETTING STARTED !
By on
Pros : Roy is a VERY knowledgeable and personable instructor! Lots of good information presented in a very interesting way, so that the whole process makes sense. If you go into the class a little baffled, and a lot intimidated by "firing schedules" "ramp times" "annealing" and "COEs" you will have all of the mysteries revealed! :) Plenty of time is given to create a great collection of pendants...you are encouraged to experiment with the materials and find the colors and textures that speak to you the most. A nice chance to enjoy your creativity~nobody is "telling you what to do"~although all technical questions are kindly and patiently answered. Anyone that I interacted with at the shop that day was friendly, professional and enthusiastic...everyones' doing a great job!
Cons : none that I can think of, it was a very worthwhile experience.

  •   Basic Glass Fusing
By on
Pros : The instructor, Roy, was extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and really seemed to enjoy sharing his wealth of knowledge on the art of glass fusing. It was a fun way to spend a Sunday. And who knows? I may have picked up a new, exciting hobby.
Cons : I had no experience with glass cutting & could have used a quick 10 minute instruction on this. I know Roy would have been more than willing to assist but I didn’t feel I could take up that much time individually when others were also requesting his time & attention during our project time.
Other Thoughts : I definitely will look into coming back for additional classes.

  •   What a fun day!
By on
Pros : Roy was a great instructor. He was helpful, funny, knowledgeable and made the class fun. It was fun learning how to fuse glass to make jewelry pieces. I can't wait to put the findings on to make them necklaces.
Cons : I really enjoyed the class, but by the end I was having trouble creating my last project. It was not his fault, I was just having a creativity overload moment. By the time I got home, I thought of all sorts of things I could have done!
Other Thoughts : I am looking forward to taking another fusing class in the future. I am especially interested in slumping and kiln cast bowls.
