  •   So Much Fun!

Pros : Instructor was very patient and easy to follow her instruction. The experience was more than I thought it would be, it was very fun!
Cons : We ended up taking the second class right after. In retro it was not the best idea. If the first class would have been just an hour longer and had more time to experiment as a newbie to work on technique etc. the second class would have been more beneficial.
Other Thoughts : It was a great time and have already signed up for another glass class with my daughter in a few weeks. The store is AMAZING as well as the staff !!
