Glaskolben Workshops are Posted



Its that time of year to start gearing up for the holidays!  We have lots of ideas for gift items you can hand craft, both easy and more complicated. Stop by the studio and check out the newest Holiday issue of Glass Patterns Quarterly, or all the holiday pattern books we have in our collection.

We have posted the dates and times for our annual Glaskolben workshops.  Cost is $125.00 which includes all your materials except the Mapp/Propane canister. Each student will need to provide one canister of Mapp/Propane fuel which can be purchased at any hardware store.  (See picture under Glass Blowing classes) Call today to reserve your spot.

Because we have limited space for these workshops, all students will need to pay for the workshop at the time they register to reserve their spot.  Unpaid spots will not be held.  Workshop fees will not be refunded if you are unable to attend unless we can fill your spot.  

Please note that we have added two workshops in December as well as three workshops in November.
