Awful experience. Big regrets!

Although we were at the location at the scheduled time, staff ignored us. When we finally asked if the class was going to be held (since it was only the two of us there), we were told that the sandblasting equipment must be prepared and it would take a week. Since we were not going to be in Japan for a week and since the staff seemed reluctant to even explain to us how to do the project, we decided not to participate. To add insult to injury, Veltra refused to refund our fee saying that their web description says that products not available for pickup will be shipped but only in Japan. Our friend signed up for sandblasting with another vendor (Craft Shop Ren) and she came home with her project the same day. We should have signed up with Craft Shop Ren instead of this one.

Instructions: 1. choose your glass (straight tumbler, mug with handle, tumbler with pedestal base), 2. Draw your own design on piece of paper or on glass or you can route directly on the glass. 3. Tape your paper to inside of cup. 4. Use battery-operated handpiece with assorted rotating diamond tips to roughen/etch surface of glass. That was it. No other instructions or supervision or even checking on us to see how we were doing or if we were done. When we finally decided that no one was checking on our progress, we had to go up to the lone cashier/staff then she came and boxed up our glasses to take with us.
