Set Your Kiln on Fire No.3505.0A door opens to a new world of possibilities By MikeRecently participated in this class--- Where does one start to explain what has been shared by a professional instructor to a small class with lots of explaining and personal instruction ? This class has opened a whole new set of ideas, techniques and enthusiasm for warm glass work ! This is my fourth class with Joe Ring and I feel really lucky to have had an opportunity to learn the right way, with the right tools and also being able to only spend my money on the right equipment once Very honestly and truthfully after having taken all these classes I have not messed up any glass at all The way I look at this is The classes are free after not wasting time and energy and getting really frustrated If you have any desire at all to learn from one of the legacy of masters of glass here you go. Take as many classes as you can possibly afford, you will not walk away disappointed Joe Ring thank you , you have no idea how much I appreciate what you have taught me , Mike

He is a great demonstrator and explains the processes in great deal and is so very helpful. He is very thorough in his explanations and helpful tips, great handouts. I highly recommend the class to anyone who loves working with glass and am looking forward to taking another glass with J.Ring. Thanks much to Joe for being a great teacher and having a lot of patience.
