  •   Wowzers! Lots of great information for one class.
By on
Pros : Steena was a very patient instructor answering a myriad of questions and providing hands on how to. It was intense for sure... completing a full project of this size in one day. I took this class as a brush up and learned so many new techniques and tools of the trade. I came prepared with pen and pad and did take notes! I'm proud of the beautiful piece I created. I'm looking forward to my next (shorter) class. Lol!
Cons : There's a level of stress involved in trying to complete a piece in one day. However, for the out of towners... it makes sense. I myself am local and would opt for a two day class or a shorter project next time. I was exhausted by the end of class as were some of my classmates and perhaps our instructor as well. So worth it though for the added skills I obtained.
Other Thoughts : I'm happy to have enough info to confidently work on projects at home. I know I can call the store anytime to ask questions as well. The staff are all most helpful and kind.

  •   Fantastic way to get started!
By on
Pros : Incredibly knowledgeable instructor, great option for people from out of town or who can't commit to a multiple-week class, all of the steps to get started in stained glass in one day! A wealth of information and instruction with immediate feedback from a professional on how you can improve your technique--something you can't get from a book or video!
Cons : Trying to go through all of the steps in your first stained glass project in one day is certainly "intense" (there's a reason most introductory classes span several weeks), so you might feel a little rushed, but if you show up well-rested and ready to learn, you will get so much out of this class.
Other Thoughts : Roy is an outstanding teacher! He has many years of experience and a passion for glass, yet he's approachable and was very supportive of everyone in the class even though we varied in experience and skill level. He showed us how to perform each step of the process as a beginner and what precautions to take to get the best results, but he also demonstrated how an experienced professional would typically do the same step and explained how and why you might eventually adapt your technique over time. Definitely take a multi-week class if you can (so you can spread out the instructions and absorb them more effectively), but that wasn't an option for me. To get so much out of just one day fully met my expectations and was exactly what I needed. Tips for an all-day class: 1. Pack a lunch (skip the restaurants) and have a quick picnic outside to maximize class time. 2. Plan on coming back another day just to browse the store, especially to pick out glass! What an experience! Thanks, Ro

  •   Great for beginners to try stained glass!
By on
Pros : I liked that this class went over EVERYTHING you'd need to get started. Daisy was a great instructor and led an independent and engaging glass. The panels we made are pretty big, which is nice because many beginning classes send you home with a tiny window hanger for the same price.
Cons : The pattern tracing technique can be pretty challenging for beginners. Many in my class had some BIG gaps to fill with solder. Teaching the resist method may be more helpful and reduce rework later-on when several of us had to re-cut pieces because they didn't fit and would be too small if we tried fixing them with grinding. We also ran out of time at the end and were rushing to get our pieces framed and apply patina and finishing compound. I felt like we were given too much time to pick our glass. Some people took a very long time and left the rest of the class waiting for the next step.

  •   One Day Beginning Stained Glass Class
By on
Pros : Steena was a very good instructor. She was patient and encouraging. This class lived up to its name. I learned a little bit about every step of creating a stain glass project; beginning to end. It was an excellent class for me who knew nothing about stain glass.
Cons :
Other Thoughts : I enjoyed everyone in the class - instructor and classmates.

  •   One Day Beginning Stained Glass
By on
Pros : We finished a project and got to take it home.
Cons : The instructor used tools that were not in the kits that we bought, and we had to buy more than just the kit.
Other Thoughts : It would have been nice if the instructor had walked around the table giving each of us, individual help, at each step, throughout the class, and then worked on her project, after all students were well underway with the given task. It would also be nice if she had used the same tools that we had in our kits. You can tell she has done this a long time, because steps that seemed common sense to her, we had no idea about. She just assumed we knew what we were doing, and really, several of us, had no clue.
