How Classes Work

This is a wonderful fun, creative process and you will be (I hope) as addicted as I am! Come with your creative ideas and be ready to have some fun. There’s some important details here, so please read them through:

  • I have a fully equipped studio with all the tools you need, including great coldworking equipment.
  • All supplies are included in the classes. Please contact me for prices.
  • Class size is limited to 4, I want to give you all as much attention as possible.
  • Proper attire is essential, long pants, long sleeved shirts and closed shoes. I will provide safety glasses etc.
  • We request a credit card number to hold your spot in a course, and on the day of the course you can choose to pay with credit (Visa, MasterCard), cash or e transfer
  • Course fees are non refundable, but if it’s an emergency you can choose another date.

What you should expect to learn:

  • Beginners will learn the basics, safety, how to cut glass, how to do some cold working and drilling holes for bails on pendants.  The beginner student will have a choice of making pendants or small dishes.
  • Intermediates:  Those with some knowledge of glass cutting etc, will have a choice of several classes such as pocket vases, sun catchers or coral bowls. The piece will have to fired overnight and then more work will be done to finish it.
  • In the intermediate classes, I will go into more detail on drilling, and cold working, pulling stringer and the use of powders on textured moulds.  
  • I will also rent out the moulds and you can do 3 bottles at once in my large kiln.  Please contact me for more info.
  • Studio time can be rented so you don’t have to buy your own tools.
