  •   Blow globes intro class
By on
Pros : Relaxed atmosphere and very hands on with set up. A lot of encouragement during the work and individual attention.
Cons : No cons. Nothing I can think of as suggestion. It does seem like it would take a dozen tries to get the hang of it!
Other Thoughts : I will definitely take another class!

Pros : Great class. You get to make so much in so little time. Wonderful color selection. If Val didn’t have what color you wanted she would go and find the color you wanted. Will be taking this class again!
Cons : I can’t think of a single con.
