    This class was very unique and we were given very hands on instruction into cutting glass, preparing glass and soldering to make our finished pieces. The class is not for the weary or those who are not confident with their hands because you are dealing with sharp glass but the instructor knew what she was doing and taught us good technique. You leave with an awesome looking piece of stained glass!

    I love working with glass! This was a good class for learning how to use a pre-determined pattern, cut precise shapes, and use specific techniques for wrapping and soldering. The instructor and his daughter provided clear directions on how to get it just right. Supplies were provided (note additional charge of $50-making for a comparatively expensive class) and there was a good selection of glass types and colors. The location is not ideal as seven of us were cramped together in tight space with cords and drop cloths serving as tripping hazards. Nonetheless, we all survived and took home a pretty stained glass piece of our very own!

    I've wanted to learn how to do stained glass for years. This workshop give you the foundation to venture off and explore stained glass designing on your own. The teacher had lots of experience and was hands-on during the whole process. This was an excellent first dabble experience!

    The class was fun, except for when I found out that the class costs 50 dollars extra payable right now!! Dabble needs to make the cost more clear!

    Ben was great. Super knowledgeable. He was kind of weak at the classroom type explanations of things, but when it came time to show us how to do things he was AWESOME. The hands on demos were great and made me feel confident in what I was doing. He was very good at answering any questions we had. He also went over project safety which was great, since working with glass, chemicals, and a soldering iron can be dangerous.
