Hayley Tsang Sather clearly put enormous thought, care and preparation into how best to help us see, understand, and ensure success. She is obviously a total master of her craft, but she is also keen and generous in sharing her knowledge and helpful tips. I thoroughly enjoyed the time with her and can’t wait to get melting! I can't thank her enough!
Hayley Tsang Sather taught us the fundamentals of how to read the glass and reduce/strike in a way that enable us to work with any silver glass. This virtual format is ideal for we have the best seat in the class, able to re-watch the videos repeatedly, and learn how to adjust the flame chemistry using our own specific torch. Hayley reviewed each of our equipment so we would get the most from our set up and it did make a nice difference in my flame. If you want to learn about working with silver glass, I highly recommend taking Explore the Magic of Silver Glass.
Whether you are interested in an introduction to silver glass or expanding your understanding of this beautiful material, you really must take a class with Hayley Tsang Sather. She generously shares her vast knowledge of both the technical and artistic aspects of silver glass. I have learned so much more than just how to work successfully with this glorious glass. Hayley helped me be more mindful and precise in my lampwork which has elevated my artistic talents. She truly is the "Silver Glass Whisperer!" You will not be disappointed.
Hayley Tsang Sather is a very gifted teacher who knows silver glass like no one else. Her dedication to excellence and her attention to detail are phenomenal. I learned so much about how to understand silver glass and look for specific indicators to get consistent results. I learned to make some beautiful beads and also learned excellent tips for shaping glass. I now have the knowledge to really experiment with silver glass in an intelligent manner rather than haphazardly heating it up and hoping for the best.
Had a lot of fun! Sorry we can't do this in person, but honestly, you have really outdone yourself in the preparation for this medium and, as per usual, you rocked it, girl! Only wish we could have dinner and a glass of wine, then it would have been perfect. Thanks for all the effort, I really enjoyed it!
The written information, the videos, and the opportunity to discuss and ask questions all contributed to the thoroughness of this class. The amount of work and preparation that went into Explore the Magic of Silver Glass is so impressive and I can’t thank Hayley Tsang Sather enough!
