I thoroughly enjoyed David's class. He is knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. And I was surprised by how much we got accomplished in just a weekend!

David ran a really good course. The only thing missing was course notes to go with it. I know we will get something by email but it would have been good to have them at the time.

Excellent course in nice relaxing atmosphere, backed up with demonstrations and all the information you need to get started on your own.
Would thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in glass.
