It’s a fun and easy class, the instructor isn’t exactly knowledgeable (so I had to learn it myself).

I didnt expect the class to use craft glue to make a leather wallet.. I guess I had higher expectations

The class itself was very nice. Not very technical, but overall the outcome was quite successful. Inclusion and dialogue between the various attendants should be more encouraged. For example, when a group of participants brings wine or food, they should be encouraged to share it with the rest of the class. Otherwise, it creates a little bit of a clique atmosphere.

The Instructor Olivia was great! Her enthusiasm, and encouragement was wonderful. It was my first time working with an Exacto Knife...and that was the hardest part of the class. Trying to make precise cuts was difficult. I also feel that we could have had a bigger table...we were like right on top of each other. I did love the locale though.

This was a really fun class, and the glasses came out really well! Our class instructor Olivia was incredibly nice and helpful; she had lots of pre-made designs to choose from and also helped some attendees create their own. They had yummy little nibbles/snacks and water for us, and though it is BYOB, I don't recommend doing that as you're working with exacto knives for the first hour or two so you probably don't want to drink! (My bf and I brought a bottle of wine but we were so engrossed in making the designs for our glasses that we forgot we had it!) The glasses themselves turned out beautifully; they're perfect for gifts or for a set of your own tumblers. And they're dishwasher-safe! Very fun and very worth it. For potential attendees: Cutting out and creating the designs for the glasses can take a while as you have to them for each of the four glasses. So if you want to bring other glass things to etch as well, I recommend sticking to simple and easy designs for your glasses so you will have time to create and cut out the designs to etch for the glass items you bring as well. One note to CourseHorse: The description for this class on your website says that glass pitchers will also be available to buy and etch at the class studio, but that is no longer the case. So you may want to update that. Attendees can still bring their own glass items to etch though :)

This class was Great! Olivia,my instructor - was so informative, helpful & inspiring! She made the class fun and inviting! This was my first class & I'm looking forward to more. I not only came home with a set of etched glasses (my sister thought I bought them in a store) but this has sparked my creativity - the ideas are endless! Lol very enjoyable!
