Pros : Val was awesome! I learned so much. I purchased a kiln about a year ago and spent most of the year learning on my own. The three days spent in this class taught me so much. We made a number of projects and Val answered all of the questions that I had. I would definitely take another class.

Pros : I had a great time learning how to fuse glass and creating projects with different techniques, such as using fiber paper to create tiles and frit to create jewelry pieces, as well as fusing and slumping glass. Val was very knowledgeable and customized the class on day 3 to things we were interested in learning. I traveled from New Orleans to take the class. I would take more classes at Delphi if it were closer to home. If another class was offered over a two or three day period I would definitely consider signing up again.
Cons : none
