Welcome to grand glass arts education

We are proud to offer a sequenced series of classes in the areas of Fusing, Mosaic, and Foil and Solder.  After completing the New Member Class and the Glass Arts Overview Class, Glass Arts students are able to take the beginning class in each genre before choosing from additional more advanced classes.  Our classes are taught by accomplished and nurturing instructors to meet the needs of all students, novice and experienced.  We also offer one and two-day Pinterest-type classes as well as free one-hour trainings for Fusing Review, Monitor Refresher and for the use of our more advanced equipment.

Start your exploration and register for classes from this page or register for classes from the Calendar on the Home Page.  Note that the Class Description does not include Class Fee, Number of Sessions and Maximum Number of Students.  This information will be included in the registration Information when the class is scheduled.  Any class that is Full will offer a Wait List option.
