The instructor was not prepared at all and even left during the class to go get supplies that he had forgotten. He didn't actually do any 'instructing'. Just gave us some lame basics that we could have figured out and then was mostly chatting with the bartender the rest of the time. I wasn't the only attendee not pleased.

received last minute email at nearly 10pm that location had changed. Thank goodness I get email on my phone! things not quite set up when we arrived. The instruction was limited, basically gave a 10 minute demonstration on how to paint and different options for creating your artwork. Ran out of wine.

I wasn't aware of this Business until Groupon showcased them but am so glad you did.

There were several things that were JUST NOT RIGHT. First of all the WRONG ADDRESS for the event was on the emails. We spent one hour trying to locate just where the event was taking place. When we got there, which was just a fluke because we spent time googling trying to figure out where it might be. So we tried an address just on a whim and that is where it was. When we got there, the person in charge (owner) seemed unconcerned that the directions sent us to the wrong place. He said it was a GLITCH. Kind of a big GLITCH if you can't get to where the event is. Then as we proceeded to try to catch up with the class, we discovered that the actual thing we were making (windchime) was going to require more at home work. I feel that we were mislead on this in more ways than one. I would not recommend this to anyone.

This was a joke! The class was to be held at a given address, then less than 10 hours before the event an email is sent stating - Good Evening, quick reminder that tomorrow's Class at 10 am will be held at : 1116 Pennsylvania Avenue Fort Worth, TX 76104 (inside Z's Cafe) - Parking is located behind the building, next door and street parking. Class will start no later than 10:10 and will wrap up by 11:45. see you soon! Regards Dallas Handmade Arts Market There were 25+ people crammed into a small, uncomfortable place to "create." The "instructor" is traveling in his SUV working out of plastic totes. He did not present himself in a professional manner. Thumbs down!

The address on the Groupon was to the Amtrak station in Fort Worth, not a class. They emailed an amended address at 11:30 Friday night. (not acceptable) About 8 of us were late to class, which turned out to be in a very small restaurant next to, an ABORTION CLINIC! For the wind chime class we were given an uncut wine bottle, a rope and three washers and instructions on how to make it at home. We were given about 15 minutes to paint whatever we wanted and then run out for the next class. The guy told me to drink more wine (I don't drink) when I complained. Sucked! The high point of my trip was eating at Waffle House on the way home. I never would do that again!

False advertisement of class. Multiple people around me were led to believe that we would be on a wheel and instead we got a lump of clay and did pinch pots. Tight space and overpaid for what we got. People were friendly but definitely waste of money for what we got.

Had a great time painting wine glasses. Would definitely take other classes from them. Relaxed atmosphere. Fun.

This event was to take place the Sunday after Thanksgiving, but was canceled via email about 3 hours before the class was to begin due to "venue issues." A follow up email stated to sign up for another class by December 5th, yet there were no classes available of the same type with space. I sent an en email to inquire and received no response. On the 4th, a class was finally added for January. We signed up, and took note of the new venue. Yesterday, a few hours before class, a venue change came out via email and luckily we saw it. We completed the class, but most of the project is to be completed on your own at home after the paint dries. There are several steps yet to be done. Disappointing

Basically it was a fun class but ....instructor arrived with out all of supplies and short on the promised beer and wine. He had to leave class to get something "missing" and beer. Class started about 35 minutes late but was over at appointed time. Felt things were very rushed and the paint color choices were slim or non existant ie: purple for TCU, we were in FTW after all. The experience could have been better and the last minute change of venue was a bit strange.
