Next Intermediate Class Starting!

Just a quick heads up!

The intermediate 8 week class starts Wednesday, the 1st of February. The cost of this class is $295 and includes your tool kit.

On your first night of class you will receive a punch card that has 24 squares for 24 hours of instructional time.  Each time you come in for class you will punch a square for every hour you are here working.  This gives you a little more flexibility for your schedule in case you have to miss a week or only want to stay for one or two hours.

The intermediate class is more individualized in that you will work with us to pick a project of your choosing and we will offer instruction on the individual things you need to know for your specific project.  At the same time – even if its something you don’t necessarily need to know for your project- you can listen in when we are instructing someone else on a specific technique. The bulk of your time will be spent honing your skills in pattern development, glass cutting and soldering. Abstract Class

And don’t worry if you can’t start the first Wednesday of February.  The beauty of this class is you can start whenever it works for your schedule.

We’ll explain more details of how the intermediate class works when you are here for your first class advanced classes.

Just call or email us if you want to start in February.  Hope to see you soon!
