One-Day of Neon

Very fun class- thought it was a good intro to help you decide if it's something you might want to pursue further. It was structured very nicely - never felt too rushed. Loved that we got to take home an abstract neon piece and learned some basic bends and techniques.

My wife and I had fun. Next time though I might wear different clothes to protect from the heat. Or if the studio had gloves or leather apron or something. Other than that it was a blast and have recommended to friends!

I loved the class so much. It was magical to transform liquid into solid and end up with something so beautiful. It really makes you appreciate what goes into an ordinary glass object. Our instructors were incredibly helpful and totally engaging.

first of all...the instructors were great. super nice. friendly and approachable. The issue was the class is waaaay to long for what it is and waaaay to expensive for what it is. In this 5 hour class you are interacting with glass for a total of maybe 10/15 minutes. A LOT of time is spent sitting around watching other people do stuff. I know a lot has to be explained but too much time is spent sitting around. For $220 i would expect a lot more time with the glass. Again, way to expensive for what it is. Working with the glass was fun but the instructors are really doing most of the work. I would highly suggest doing this in pairs for 1.5 hours and charging $100. Anything longer or more expensive i wouldnt be able to suggest to friends.
