Outside Reviews for Instructor Chris and Team

This place is a true NYC gem! Sometimes you just need to make things and this is a perfect outlet. Very laid back, friendly vibe. I was lucky enough to get a four-hour private stained glass lesson with Kelsie McNair, and while I have a lot to practice and plenty more to learn, I feel equipped enough to practice on my own. Soup to nuts, we went from design idea, to material selection and through all key steps of the process to make a window hanger. As a novice, I'm surprised I walked away with anything respectable but I did! All the while, Kelsie, the instructor and Chris the manager were good natured and supportive. They are people you'd happily hang out with and made it very easy to learn from. Today far exceeded expectations and increased my interest in the craft. This session was a gift and I would recommend it for others.
