  •   Great intro class
By on
Pros : Val was a wonderful teacher! She gave us tons of information about borosilicate and how it can be used. She got us familiar with the torch, the techniques and then turned us loose. She helped us when we needed it but let us be creative and try our hand at working with the Boro glass. It was a great intro class!
Cons : Bone
