Pros : Great class! Steena, the instructor, explained each segment of the lead came process with great detail. The pace and steps to completing the final product was perfect. I did not feel rushed in the end. Each student left with a beautiful completed project. Thank you for your patience Steena, 90 Cutting came at 45 and 90 have become easier.
Cons : None

  •   Nov 21 Lead Came Class
By on
Pros : Knowledgeable instructor, and plenty of time to work
Cons : As a beginning class, it would have been EXTREMELY helpful to have a few minutes of soldering practice before having to solder my piece. Never done it before, and my lack of experience really cheapened the look of my piece. Very disappointed in that aspect. The cement we used was old and I'm not sure it will set properly. Wasn't told (either on the website, or in-store when I shopped for glass the week before class) that there were 3 pattern choices. Would have been nice to know beforehand. I might have made other choices.
