You get a plate of glass pieces of mixed colors. Ours were predominantly tans, creams, browns and a few pieces of a lot of other colors. If you come with (or choose there) a design that requires particular colors (greens for leaves, oranges/reds for sunset, etc.) you will not have enough of the particular colors you'll need. You can choose to purchase additional small bags of glass for $5 each. I've been to other classes that put out pails of glass organized by color, and you pick out exactly the colors you want. You also get one grout color choice - black. If your design really needs a light grout, you'll have to take care of that yourself after you leave class.

My issue is their rescheduling policy – they have NONE. Unless you know that you will be sick within 7 days of scheduling your class, you are completely out the money. This seems ridiculous to me. I work in a doctors’ office and there are times that sickness goes around the entire clinic. I ended up with a very severe stomach virus that lasted 3 days. It was extremely contagious as I was the 5th person at work to get it. I sent a message to the owner of BonTon the Friday before my Saturday class explaining all of the above info and I received a message back eluding to the fact that maybe they could sell my “seat” / Groupon to someone else that came along to the class that day. When I asked them on Sunday, what happened, I received a VERY short note that they do not do this and I had lost my opportunity to reschedule, unless I wanted to buy another Groupon. While I did sign off on a cancellation policy with them, I thought that they may have had some instances that they would make an exception, that they are a company with a heart or a little understanding - but they are not. I have purchased over 25 Groupons and have never had an issue like this.

Best to know what you are doing before going there. Though that seems to defeat the purpose of an Introductory Class.

project turned out great, but as an experienced mosaics designer I felt like I was in kindergarten. did not feel encouraged to be creative. facilitator was a bit condescending at times, too many rules.

Great time! The studio is comfortable. The instructors are comical. And the projects were fun! I didn't feel out of my realm as a beginner. So much fun. Will definitely go back again!
