We make every effort to begin classes and workshops promptly as advertised. Thanks for helping us!
Basic Skills Classes
Skill classes are typically one session and allow students the opportunity to gain and increase a specific skill set. These classes are geared to meet individual needs and will not contain more than six students. Additional or alternative private sessions are available upon request.
Glass Cutting 101
This is where it all starts! Glass cutting is a basic skill that is required for most glass media projects. During this skills class you will learn the basics of glass cutting including tools, safety, pattern cutting, and grinding. Whether you are doing stained glass or plan on fusing, classes are geared towards the needs of the students. By the end of this 2 hour class, you will have cut straight pieces, circles, and everything in between. You will have use of our tools during class. No experience necessary.
Struggling with soldering? This basic foundations class will help you learn how to make a smooth bead. Bring in foiled pieces (can be scraps or a mini project under 8” square) and we will work together as a group to increase our skills. Bringing in the tools that you use is helpful for a discussion of your results. Class time is typically 1/12 hours.
Understanding Your Kiln
This seminar is great for anyone who owns or plans on owning a kiln. We will discuss ordering, setup, testing and running your kiln.

It’s a great learning experience for all you "firing newbie’s", or a great refresher for current kiln owners. Session lasts about 2 hours. Reservations required.
