Fused Glass Classes and Studio Time

We are pleased to offer a selection of classes on fused glass techniques. Effective 2016, we have changed our fused glass class roster. The Intermediate and Advanced Fused Glass classes have been updated to group similar techniques so you can choose an area you are interested in focussing on. In addition to the regular classes, we are holding workshops for specific projects. New workshops will be added periodically, so check back often!
Need more time to work on a project? Call ahead to make an appointment and use our studio. Studio fee is $10/hr with a 2 hour minimum.
