This was such an amazing date!! We had a blast learning about the process and Jim is so sweet. We did this on a Sunday morning and then made a day in the city. I highly recommend and we plan to do phase 2!

Jim is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher. The class was fun and a great introduction to glasswork. It's harder than it looks and some parts I could not do without his assistance, but he helped me in a way that made me feel like I was still doing the task myself. I really appreciated that. & He shipped my item to me within a week! I would take one of his classes again and recommend them to anyone interested in glass art.
