Attended: Paperweights
This class was awesome! Everyone got to make 2 paperweights, and some got to make three. They showed us a variety of different techniques, and walked us individually through the process of actually achieving them. There were 3 instructors for our 9 student class. The facility is very clean and well organized -- everything thing is where it is for a reason. After an overview of the process and picking out what colors/techniques we wanted to use, we split up into three groups. Each person took a turn to make their paperweight with the supervision, guidance, and help of the instructor; you get their full attention when it's your turn. I happened to work with a different instructor on each of the three pieces I made; each one taught a bit differently, but they were all great. One of them was a lot better at giving verbal cues for where I should be. Another was great because she fell back more and let me do more of the work with just verbal instructions rather than assistance, even if it took a little longer and looked a little lumpier in the process. I am very happy with the facility, instructors, and curriculum. The other students were very nice as well. I've recommended it to every friend I've seen since I took the class -- and to every one on facebook. It is completely worth the price.
