This was a wonderful class. Our instructor was hands on enough to make sure we were safe and came away with beautiful pieces to take home, while allowing us to really get a feel for the material.

Brooklyn Glass is an amazing studio setup with friendly and knowledgeable instructors. In this class I made 2 marbles and a small glass. I had the freedom let ask the instructors know what I wanted to make, which was then demonstrated to me individually. I did feel that teaching was mostly done led with demonstration, and then the rest of class was focused on making—you were left up to your own creation. There was less direction while we were working, more troubleshooting as needed. I suggest asking the instructors as many questions as you have about technique and methods if you're interested.
