All of our classes are taught in our spacious studio classroom with abundant lighting and the most inspiring view of the forest preserve. Classes are offered year-round and the size is limited to assure you of personalized attention. We want to make sure that your adventure into glass is enjoyable and creative.

Class fees include full use of our large climate-controlled studio to include grinders, worktables, light tables, and more.

Once registered, students must have their tools and supplies purchased no later than one week prior to their class start date.

Beginner

You will go home the first night with a finished piece of stained glass even though you’ve had no previous experience. The second week, you will start working on your large project. Each student will choose a pattern from one of our original window designs and create their own masterpiece using the copper foil method. These windows are approximately 16" x 20" and contain 20 to 25 pieces. It’s through experience that we have learned that if your first project is limited in size, this enhances your first project enjoyment and allows us to teach you the fine art at a more relaxed pace. Beginner tool kits, including all necessary tools, will be available for purchase. Champagne Graduation is now the tradition for last session of class.

Class fee: $50.00
Beginner tool kit: $150.00 to $170.00
Approximate cost for glass: $20.00 to $30.00
Class limit: 8 people
Length of class: 6 weeks
