________________________________________________________________________________________________

We get lots of calls from interested people that either live too far away to participate in our regular weekly classes, or just can't fit classes into their work schedule. For these people we are offering a two day "beginner's level" workshop, in which they can complete a 16"X 20" stained glass project. We will host a four workshops each year. Class size will be limited to no more than four students per workshop. We will provide all tools needed. The fee for this two-day workshop is $250. This includes two days of instruction, all materials, lunch and snacks on both days. Since patterns need to be drawn and glass reserved or ordered, students must let us know which design they want to make within 4 weeks of their workshop. If students fail to let us know their chosen design within the stated time frame, their project will be our most popular design, the fleur de lis panel. A 50% DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED AT SIGN UP & the remaining balance must be paid within 3 months of the scheduled workshop. To view our deposit/refund policy, Click Here
