More schools & links

I apologize in advance for not having first-hand knowledge of many of these programs, but I wanted to make the links available....

Third Degree Glass Factory in St Louis offers short classes (and a live webcam!. I'm sure this has been mentioned elsewhere, but this is also where you can get Jim McKelvey's book & DVD: Art of Fire: Beginning Glassblowing, which I highly recommended. Big Ed's book is great and offers a very broad perspective, but Jim really goes into the basic "hand mechanics" and that, for me, is a stumbling block.
