  •   Exceptional Class
By on
Pros : Patty Gray and her assistant Carol Barker conducted a detailed, well organized and expertly instructed class. Patty demonstrated and taught a huge variety of techniques in three days while giving us ample time to design and create over 8 pieces of our own based on the techniques taught in class. The sheet glass and accessory glass provided by Delphi was extensive and wonderful. Patty was patient and explained things in various ways to ensure all participants understood the processes. When the technique required some exacting steps she completed them one on one with each of us. I felt so supported and encouraged by her positive comments, kind constructive suggestions for improvement and her “walk throughs” of completed student projects. I highly recommend this class and I look forward to attending again in the future to learn even more.
Cons : Not a thing!

  •   Class of a lifetime!
By on
Pros : Three days of intense learning with fun like minded people. What more could you ask for. Learned so many techniques that I have read about but not practiced, great design feedback and I think some new lifetime friends. I will definitely treat myself to another Patty Gray class and look forward to more classes from other instructors.
Cons : I thought it was pricey UNTIL I realized how many projects we were able to do and with the fabulous glass and embellishments from Delphi and Patty Gray.

  •   Advanced Fusing Techniques w/Patty Gray
By on
Pros : Made a lot of stuff. Patty is a wonderful teacher-easy to understand & had good rapport with each student. She gave individual attention to everyone. She & her assistant, Jan, had prepared a lot of the class for us in advance, which allowed for us to to be able to make so many things. It saved us time.
Cons : Studio did not have a sink for washing glass pieces off after fusing & before & after coldworking. Also, if there was going to be no Sharpie pens available for our use, the teacher needed to know this so she could tell us to bring some.
