Classes at A Touch of Glass Studio!

Find a class you like – grab a couple friends and let’s get it scheduled!  Use the contact buttons by each class,  give me a couple times that will work for you and I’ll get back with you with your date and time.    Please allow a weeks notice but if your time frame is shorter it doesn’t hurt to ask – I’ll do my best to schedule you asap.  


I have some classes specifically for groups of kids – please ask if you are interested.  My little granddaughter loves stringing beads so if they are patient and have a steady hand they can be successful.  …sort of patient…sort of steady 🙂  

 

Check back frequently – options will be added as we are inspired.  And be SURE to let us know if you are interested in learning a jewelry design that you don’t see here.  Also, many classes have been converted into kits you can do at home.  The written instructions are great and I even have YouTube videos available for some designs.
