New members with no or limited glass arts experience
If you have limited or no glass arts experience, you are required to complete a 2-day New Member Class. These classes are held on the second weekend of a month from October through April.
Part one of the Class is a 1/2-day GGA Club Overview presented by Officers and Chairpersons which includes an introduction to the amenities of the Club, Member responsibilities, overview of our Education Program and a tour of the Studio.
Part two of the Class is 1 1/2 days of glass skills training including safely working with glass, cutting glass, using glass tools, including a grinder, and using a pattern, all while making a small fused glass project. The price of the class includes all glass and tools needed so you just need to come with a pen and paper.
Following the New Member Class, you will then be eligible to take one or more of our beginning series of classes to learn fusing, stained glass and/or mosaics. These classes, like the New Member Class, include all the glass and tools you need to complete a project. They are held the 3rd or 4th week of the Month, October through April.
Pease Note: Unlike the New Member Classes which are held on weekends, our beginning classes sessions are held on weekdays and run either 9-12 or 1-4. There are 3 sessions to each class.
