Dan was very personable and worked so well with the kids. He explained things very well and was very patient with all of us. It was a super fun and unique experience. We are looking forward to coming back and taking another class to make something different next time. Thanks for a fun day!
We had SO MUCH FUN! We called and they were able to set us up with a paperweight class the very next day. Dan was such an amazing teacher and made something so scary and hot, feel effortless and fun. Highly recommend taking a furnace or torching class with them - we've done both and have LOVED coming back over the years! Thanks Dan and LSAG crew for being accommodating and welcoming!
Excellent instructor. Enjoyable time.
Ryan is the best of the best. Two classes with him, will be requesting him for future classes. Learned a lot and had a great time. Interested in learning, make sure to go here, you will not be disappointed.
Ryan was awesome! All of his instructions were clear and to the point. He made it fun.
I loved the class and Ryan, but was disappointed in the color/results of the glass paperweight. I think less color would have made a prettier paperweight, but didn't get any pointers on coloration, and maybe not enough pointers on manipulation of the glass.
Dan: We thoroughly enjoyed the class on how to make paperweights. You made it fun, engaging and personal. It was certainly one of the highlights of our anniversary trip ... and we have these wonderful, beautiful souvenirs that will always remind us of that trip and the fun time we had making them! Thank you so much!! We wish you all the best. Dave & Nan Myers
Class was informational, hands on and fun. Would like to take another class.
This was a great family activity for my wife and 18-year old twins because we had never done anything this unique before. Our instructor Ryan was professional, personable, and took steps to ensure our paperweights will become a treasured heirloom. We all had a great time and are looking forward to taking another class from Ryan.
Color we chose at beginning of class wasn't the color we got when paperweight was cooled😞
Dan shared not only his passion for but also his vast knowledge of glass making. He took time to explain the process and made it fun and interesting. Would highly recommend taking a class!
It was as a great experience. Being new to glass, I would have appreciated seeing examples of what the techniques would look like, what the colors would turn out to be, etc.
