Question from Ellen M.
What is the estimated number of glasses you make for $195?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Ellen! One to two, plus most likely a flower and a paperweight. Flowers and Paperweights are formed at the beginning of every class at Brooklyn Glass to teach the student how to handle the glass. Then they move onto making Tumblers. Hope this helps.
Question from Katie U.
Anyone have a sense of how this glassblowing class is different from the other BG intro glassblowing course (same number of hours )?
Answer from S M G. Verified Student
I never took another course before this. I feel like I learned a lot in the amount of time I was there. I made 3 things, a tumbler, a bowl, and a paperweight. And none of them look like a child's art project from school! So we worked until the very end, not when we finished a project. There was time to do another, so we made another. Teachers were all nice and supportive.

We had a lovely time taking this course! The instructors were so informative, and we got to make a couple projects in the allotted time. We felt like we learned a lot and were so mesmerized about the glass blowing process. Jessie was great, and we would recommend this experience to anyone!
