We offer classes on a monthly basis, rotating three classes per month.
Most classes are based on about 8 hours of class time, and our studio is open to students at all other working hours.
Students will create thier own pieces during each class (four weekly sessions) or multiple projects during weekend classes.
Our classes include Kiln Forming (Fusing and Slumping), Stained Glass, Bead Making (flameworking), Sand Blasting, Fused Glass Jewelry, Precious Metal Clay, and Glass Blowing.
One-day workshops are available in Glassblowing, and are offered to students 16 or older only.
We are also an open studio where people of any age may come in and make their own fused and sandblasted glass art items.
There is no need to take a class or have experience.
We show anyone how to do it and a wide variety of projects are available.
We are open Tuesday - Saturday 11:00am - 6:00pm and Sundays from 12:00 - 5:00 for walk-ins and retail gallery.
