This class was amazing!!! We cut the wood to the shape we chose, stained it, decorated it, picked the color wheels we wanted … we did everything! And finished the class with a masterpiece. Arlene is a great instructor and Jeff is an amazing sidekick. We (me, my adult son and adult nephew) had a great time. I highly recommend this experience.

My adult son and I took this class and loved it. We picked our leather, cut it and hand sewed the wallet. The instructor was patient and kind - I messed up quit a bit. We are taking the skateboard making class next week and will definitely take more classes there. The location is convenient and the shop is very nice inside. I highly recommend this business.

Very basic knowledge of making stained glass work, they only taught you how to do it, not how to do it well. More than 5 people attended.

It was a great class in a sense that it was quite easy. The studio had prepared the design of the stool we were building as well as the sequence of construction with every tool having a custom jig that allowed for perfect cuts and tight fits. It ended up just being three students including myself which meant we could ask many questions without holding up the class.

This class was delightful! The instructors were delightful, the other participants were delightful, and the project was delightful. I am certainly going to return in the future.

I went to the build a copper lamp class and I have to say it was pretty awesome. You do not need any experience as the instructor went over each step and was very attentive to those who had questions or needed extra guidance. I was rather proud of myself at the end result and would definitely do another class.
