Pros : Informative and able to do hands on with direction. Able to bring home a finished panel.
Cons : The selection of etched pictures were limited and not the same as was shown in the original advertisement (no lighthouse). I was hoping for a wider selection of etchings.
Other Thoughts : We still have a lot to learn but we expected that going in . This class was a good starting point.

  •   Great Class

Pros : Good instructions as I had never done leaded glass before.
Cons : A little difficult soldering with the soldering iron made available. I have done soldering before. These soldering iron did not seem to stay hot enough to melt solder completely and keep it melted to make joints. Seemed to cycle on and off making for a joint not as clean as I have done in other similar type of project other than leaded glass. Maybe I just needed more experience with “ leaded glass” work.
Other Thoughts : I would like to see maybe a few more options as to the type of leaded glass project that we could do in the time we had. This project had all straight cuts in the lead cane. Maybe another class to take after this one to learn curves and cutting of glass in a project.
