This was an awesome experience! We really enjoyed being able to do the majority of work ourselves when creating the paperweights. One of the best things is that the instructor was right there to help and will give you help as you need. We plan to do another glass project at FOCI Minnesota Center for Glass Arts the next time we are in Minnesota!
