I went with little to no expectations of what I would do at the class. The owner/artist working with us really made an effort to let each student be as hands on and involved in their own project as safely as possible.
We had a great time. We made two pieces and enjoyed the experience.
We had a great time! Dan is very knowledgeable in the art of glass and also a very patient and thorough instructor. He took the time and attention required by each participant to insure they would be successful with their chosen project. The information provided and the hands on experience was just great! We plan to be back for another glass experience!
Great instructor! Patient and helpful if you need help.
so much fun! great instruction and lots of hands-on experience. would do it again!
We really had a great time. It was fun learning some of the intricacies of working with glass.
Dan was VERY knowledgeable and concerned about our safety and having an enjoyable time!! Even though he was running behind due to a client who was late he didnt rush us through our workshop. He gaves us our FULL class even though it meant he was workng later than expected.... he seemed to TRULY LOVE his job! VERY PATIENT teacher!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
The instructor was informative on all processes, concise and direct on instructions while working with myself and wife. This provided for a safe and productive workshop. We were very happy with our finished products.
Very fun, informative, hands on experience. The instructor was very friendly and helpful and made the experience. Would recommend this place to anyone! Can't wait to go back!!
my granddaughter bought me this gift for Christmas.She likes to try out things and we both enjoy this. the instructor was very nice and helpful
Daniel was great! I learned so much and can't wait to go back. He is a true professional and explained everything clearly and was super patient. I look forward to the next glass pieces that I learn to make here. What a great experience! I became a donor on the Patreon site because I feel that Ohio City Glass has so much to offer the community and Dan is the right guy to do it. Thank you so much for the inspiration, creativity and professionalism... see you in class again soon!
Dan was very informative, patient, and great at guiding you through the experience. Made it look easy even though there is a lot to learn and keep remembering. Hope to do again soon.
Amber is very skilled in her art and was kind enough to accommodate our unique style requests so that we could create some pieces that were particularly special to us.
Awesome overall experience!!
I purchased these as a Christmas gift for myself and 3 friends. It took a while to get on the schedule but was well worth it. Our instructor was very patient and entertaining and we all had a great time. I would definitely recommend Ohio City Glass!
What a fun time! Dan was great we will be back!
Daniel provided a wealth of information and was very personable. We really enjoyed the work shop and felt like we walked away with a great experience. We’re excited to pick up our piece later this week!!
Items were not finished at promised time for pick up. Items were made on Thursday, and promised to be ready for pick up on Saturday. I picked them up two days later than that, on Monday, but they still had not had the sharp edges filed down yet. I enjoyed the experience, but disappointed with the follow through from staff with regards to actually assuring the products were ready to be picked up.
The experience and instruction was great. We recommend it to others. It was not the easiest place to find.
Absolutely loved our experience!
Thought it was a cool experience. Felt it was explained in a way that we understood.
Amber, our instructor, is an excellent teacher. She was constantly monitoring our safety every step of the way. She explained not only the processes but the science (chemistry/physics/engineering) behind what we were doing. She gave us excellent artistic/creative advice as well. My 12 year-old granddaughter was fascinated and delighted with this experience and it turned out to be the perfect gift for both of us.
instructor was very nice and knowledgeable... studio owner was very rude...I also felt that when working with molten glass more safety measures would have been in place.
My wife and I had the time of our lives!!
This was an amazing experience! We had a wonderful time, and learned so much. What a great time, with a beautiful outcome!
It was fun! Our instructor was very knowledgeable and talented providing just enough guidance.
The class was great and the owner was very knowledgeable and down to earth
Very patient and calm teacher. Perfect in adding assistance and talking you through the steps. Definetely helps growing interest of doing this.
I had a great time. Instructor was easy going and taught us a lot. The hands on was lore than I expected and I liked that as well. Looking forward to picking up my piece.
Outstanding hands-on glass experience with great teacher. Amber made sure we got to do as much as each of the four of us were able. My 10 year old grandson had as much fun as I did at 64. As a former Art teacher with a little experience in glass, I was able to blow and craft a pumpkin, with a lot of help. Much better than our experiences at Corning Glass Museum in NY.
It was a great experience
Great instructor. Great time. Definitely need more than one water there..lol
We enjoyed seeing a demonstration of how glass objects are made and then got to try doing it ourselves. We enjoyed the experience. It's a lot harder than it looks!
The overall experience was a good one, as working with hot glass is interesting and unique. David is very knowlegeable, and provided excellent information as to why things are done a certain way and how glass reacts. That being said, we were not greeted when we arrived; asked our names nor did he introduce himself until almost halfway through the class. Several times during the demonstration at the beginning he stated he didnt expect us to remember everything or be very good our first time. However, he became very frustrated very quickly with each one of us the minute we did something wrong and went as far as raising his voice to us numerous times. There were only four of us, 3 females and one male. Not a large class. Thankfully the experience itself is very cool, as his attitude was not. We will definitely take another workshop or hopefully claases in the future, just not with him.
Learned a lot about this art form, enjoyed participating and working with the glass under instructor's supervision, made a beautiful glass ball! Safe, fun and easy!
I had a great experience and it was a lot of fun.
This was my first experience working with hot glass. Like any craft, skills are built with time and practice. Grateful for the guidance and interception of our instructor to improve my piece. Haven't seen the finished work yet but looking forward to it. He seemed to think it will turn out well. Learned it takes a bit of coordination and balance along with remembering the instructions to have a positive outcome. . Really helped to wear sunglasses as recommended by the instructor. If you listen carefully and follow his instructions, you'll do fine. For a first time, keeping the project simple was the best decision for me. Overall, it was an interesting and fun experience to see first hand how its done! Have a whole new respect for Art Glass Designers and Artists. Fun to see what other students made and what colors they used. If you're looking for a new adventure, this one is a great choice!
