Pros : It was great to be able to watch and ask questions as the instructor went along. His knowledge of the products made it much easier to be able to decide what I need to get started. Books are great but I think being able to see and communicate in real time is so much better. I think it may be even better than being there in person because the visual is full screen, and up close where in a class there may be a lot of people around and your vision may be blocked by some.
Cons : I don't know any except for a brief loss of internet connection on the instructors side.
Other Thoughts : I am inspired to go for it!

By on
Pros : Makes expertise of Delphi instructors available to people who cannot travel to take in person classes Use of close up cameras make it easy for distance learners to follow what the instructor is doing Answering questions posed in chat very helpful The fact that zoom course booked so quickly shows there is a real demand. Need to offer more zoom courses Offering the recording of the session is welcome. Hard to write notes about everything we see
Cons :
Other Thoughts : The instructor had a nice style. The pace was just right. The two hour time period was perfect

  •   AWESOME CLASS!
By on
Pros : This was the perfect class for me as I have been away from my SG studio for almost 10 years. Now that I'm getting back into the craft, I thought it best to take a soldering refresher course. I wasn't disappointed in the least. The class also benefited me with all-encompassing lessons with regards to irons, tips, safety, solders, flux, patina, & cleaning. I highly recommend this course not only for newbies but also folks who have been at it for years. This course was so awe inspiring & thorough that I won't hesitate to take more classes from Delphi.

Pros : Casual, welcoming personality and format. Very helpful video demonstrations. Good information on types and uses of various irons, solders, and fluxes. I like that viewers could email questions and have them answered immediately during the video. Thank you for this session. I look forward eagerly to other topics.
Cons : I would have preferred less chatter. For instance, Roy told us several times that he is impatient. That information is not helpful. Some information was stated multiple times. Better organization might have minimized this. To complete the whole process, I would have liked to hear information and see video, even briefly, on using patina.

Pros : What a great class. Roy is such an approachable, relatable instructor. I have been doing stained glass without any formal instruction for years now. I learned so much useful information on techniques, tools, solder, all of it. Can't wait to get into my shop and put it all to use. 2 hours well spent.

  •   Zoom Soldering Made Easy
By on
Pros : I have been creating Stained Glass art for year and a half and I find soldering to be the hardest part to master. I learned many points answered that I had questions about. In particular, I will try using 50/50 to fill in gaps on my current project. It is about150 pieces of glass, and surel,y there will be some gaps when I go to solder. Also, I did not know that I could use Kwik-Clean to remove flux when I didn't want to move the piece. I also liked how Roy demonstrated moving the piece to work at 90 degree angles to get a good, even bead. I think working at a slower more consistent rate will help me achieve better results. I enjoyed the entire presentation and would sign up for future Zoom courses. Thank you Roy for a great presentation. You were informative and enjoyable to watch.
Cons : NO CONS -
Other Thoughts : This is the first course I have taken in Stained Glass. Since I started my Stained Glass journey, I have been using books and You Tube presentations and, of course, lots of hours of practice. Delphi Glass has been my resource for my glass and all of my supplies since I began this adventure. I would definitely sign up for other Zoom classes presented by Delphi and Roy. Thank you.

  •   Soldering through Zoom
By on
Pros : - Useful information about equipment, materials, temperatures, how to fill in large gaps. - Zoom format allowed participants to see the soldering from a close-up viewpoint which would not have been possible in a class setting - Questions arose about the explanation being given at the time and were answered promptly. This is better than having a Q&A at the end, and rather than interrupt the flow of the class it provided additional information. - Appreciated that there was time to cover cleaning and patina at the end
Cons : While this is a soldering class, it could be useful to include tips on what we can do (if anything) at the foiling stage to ensure more consistent solder seams and generally make the soldering process go more smoothly.
Other Thoughts : Highly recommended for anyone who struggles to create nice, consistent, smooth solder seams Appreciated receiving a recording of the class later the same day. Even though it is only available for a week watching it again at my leisure I have already picked up information that I missed the first time.

Pros : Helped me so much. Just knowing to let an area filled with solder cool before going over it again and how to stop bleed through. Also great info about solder and iron temperatures that I didn't know. Fantastic class with a great and knowledgeable instructor.

  •   So, so helpful
By on
Pros : I loved the amount of detail, and as others have said, the camera work and close ups were great. I've watched a million YouTube tutorials and they never seem to really show the soldering technique up close. I hope Delphi continues to offer zoom classes indefinitely.
Cons : Would like to have a recording to review.
Other Thoughts : Would love to see information on patina but understand there is only so much time during the zoom session. A separate class on patina would be great. Also a class on hobby came!
