Pros : The class was amazing. The instructor was terrific and showed us so many different techniques. She not only showed us different techniques but how you could set something like this up at home. She answered everyone's questions and made sure we really understood what she was saying. I loved the class and would recommend this class to anyone thinking about trying something like this. I will definitely take another class.
Cons : I wish the class had been longer. The only other con I have is that Delphi Glass is just too far away. (Maybe a good thing :-) )
