  •   Great Teacher, Great Class Learned a Lot!
By on
Pros : Informative, lots of samples, great pace, very accommodating instructor making sure everyone had what they wanted and needed to create their fusible glass art! Even materials to take home since projects could not be finished during class time.
Cons : Not enough tools for everyone, scissors, pistol grip cutters, having to wait for people to cut out their patterns on soft metal. I brought my own punched metal inclusions, so was not as hindered by this as others were. People get possessive of their tools and do not readily share, and if you borrow from their work area when they are at lunch...when they return they want to know where their tools are. Because I am not aggressive in nature...this is the second class I have taken with you, where simple tools were not available...had to wait for others to finish and give them up...
Other Thoughts : Roy is a great instructor have taken two classes with him and both have been really great!

Pros : I had so much fun learning about metals for fusing and then making projects. The instructor was awesome allowing imagination and creativity to flow. Again Delphi is so generous with the use of glass and metals it’s a relaxing and enjoyable experience. It’s great therapy for the winter blues I always leave class with such peace.
Cons : None.
