Whether you already are a stained glass artist or want to be one, please take advantage of my 23 years of knowledge and experience and come take an online class with me!
You will learn new techniques, intricate tips and tricks as well as tool reviews to make you more confident about attempting any kind of project. Have an idea for a design but have no idea if it would work in glass? Take a private class and we can work through it together. I want to inspire glass artists to attempt any kind of project, 2D or 3D, they're thinking about and most importantly, experiment and think outside the box! If you're unsure of your abilities, I want you to feel confident to dream and attempt anything that's on your mind and not to worry about the details because I'll be here to walk you through it!
I will teach anything that can be taught online. In most cases a 2 hour class would be ideal but if you are stuck on a certain process or want to hone your skills in a particular process, a 1 hour class would be great. If you are having a hard time trying to figure out how long of a class you'd need, don't hesitate to contact me (addresses below) and we can talk about it beforehand. Here are a bunch but not all the examples on classes I offer:
Everything you ever wanted to know about how to make a leaded, stained glass panel.
If you have the basics down, take this class to learn about building up non-framed edges with solder, when its appropriate to do so, and tinning filigrees or vase caps, or other brass embellishments as well as some simple decorative soldering.
This class will teach you how you can incorporate agate slices, beads, sea glass, tinned brass filigrees, , and just about anything else you can think of to your glass work.

Copper Foil Overlay
This in-depth class gives you all the knowledge you need to start making your own copper foil overlay pieces. From tools, to where to get them, techniques, tips and tricks to make your overlay a more enjoyable and less stressful experience.
