Pros : Roy & Izzy were phenomenal. They had the perfect blend of safety, teaching, and humor. They were incredibly patient and committed to making our glassworks great, despite my failures. To listen to them, everything went as planned (even though I know it didn't!). I liked the class structure. Four hours sounds like a lot of time, but the time flew by. Also, I didn't feel rushed. It was nice to have a set project (ornament) and then a personal choice. 10/10. I would recommend the class to anyone remotely interested in glass blowing and would probably even take it again myself.
Cons : No cons. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We can't say enough good things about Roy and Izzy. They made the class enjoyable and memorable.
Other Thoughts : 1. Consider adding to the online class descriptions about what you could bring, e.g., a water bottle. You provided water (which was awesome), but -- having never been in a hot shop -- we were uncertain if we could bring our own. 2. During the second exercise, it would be nice if the teacher or student told the rest their intention before they started. (Obviously, only if they're comfortable.) Then, as you're watching others, you can better understand why they're doing what they're doing.
