"Julie was very knowledgeable and skilled. It was well structured and informative. I'd love a next step class. Thanks for providing these unique opportunities". - Patrice W.
"The class was great! Julie was very knowledgeable and anxious to see every student succeed. I wish the class had been longer! I would have been more than willing to pay more for a full day class so I could perfect my skills. This however, was a great intro class and I would love to take the next step up! - Janey B.

Team Work of Art

Just Try-iT! These are beginner sessions intended to introduce a glass-working approach. You will learn basic techniques specific to that approach and the type of glass used with hands-on practice time to get comfortable working with glass and open your eyes to the creative potential of glass! While each class highlights different elements, techniques from each one contribute to a better understanding - and may be applied - to a wide expanse of glass craft techniques. All 3-hour Try-iT sessions are $95 per person.
Instructed by studio artist teachers and visiting artists, workshops will facilitate an opportunity for students to focus on a specific technique through personalized instruction and core projects. Participants are required to have previous experience with glass or participated in a Try-iT session. Intermediate classes are typically half-day or full-day - including lunch - workshops and vary in cost based on materials and instruction needed.
Formatted as multi-week courses, advanced classes are intended to dive deep into the science and techniques of a glass-work approach. Participants will expand on a single focused project over the course of the series or create multiple projects each week. Participants are required to have previous experience with glass or participated in a Try-iT and Intermediate session. Annually offer a special master class with local or visiting artists at the top of their field reveal their secrets.
