Class Schedule

All classes require a three-person minimum enrollment; maximum enrollment on most classes is 8 students, although 10 can be accommodated as needed.

Introduction to Leading ~ Mondays, March 6 thru April 10, 6:30 - 9:00 pm:
(Note new class day ~ class will be moved from March 20 to March 21 due to a conflict) This big intro class takes students from selecting a design through signing a finished project while teaching all the major stained glass skills. Cost for this class is $125/person + $50 tool deposit + cost of materials; the tool deposit will be refunded at the conclusion of the six-week series of classes if all tools are returned, or it may be applied to the materials cost at the student’s direction. Space in the class is limited to eight (8) , and is available on a first-come, first-served basis dependent upon receipt in the studio of the registration fee of $175 (nonrefundable $125 plus $50 tool deposit) by March 2. Registered students must come into the studio prior to the first class to select their project pattern and glass colors. Because extensive homework is required to maintain the six week completion schedule, students may come in to the studio during normal work hours (2-6PM) on class days to work on their projects without incurring normal shop fees. This is an intensive introductory level class, suitable for anyone interested in learning the basics of stained glass.

A footnote about this class: because students in recent classes have had difficulty completing the projects in the established time frames, the patterns available for this series of classes have been revised.

Introduction to Fusing: Garden Art, Saturday, May 6, 10 am - 3 pm:
In the most basic terms, fusing is heating layers of glass until they have melted into each other. The first portion of the class will deal with the serious side of the fusing process, while the second portion of the class is hands-on fun! Using pre-cut and other components, we will make fused glass panels suitable for insertion into garden stakes or for hanging as suncatchers!. The cost of the class is $100 per person, which includes all materials and supplies to make the insert. A variety of garden stakes are available at the studio for purchase separately as desired. Due to time limits, the project will be fired at the conclusion of the class, and students will have to return to the studio at a later date to pick up their fired insert. Space is limited to 10 people, and may be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis by receipt in the studio of the non-refundable registration fee by Thursday, May 4. This is an introductory level class, suitable for anyone interested in learning the basics of fused glass.
