Get a little Glassblowing in your day. Watch me make a Glass Bead, then make one yourself. 

Spend the entire hour making more beads with my guidance. Each student gets their own station to work at with up to 5 students in each class.

I will provide a variety of materials and tools for you to string your beads together.

This class can be scheduled at any day or time upon request. Groups of 2+ are encouraged to schedule their own Private Lesson for a discount. Just send me a request through Dabble. This is great for friends, families, work groups, bridal parties, birthday parties, scout groups, and so on.

Glass Artist and Teacher in Chicagoland for 10+ years with all kinds of people in all different places. I don't just make art and teach people how to make art. I'm a little bit like a construction worker / therapist. Glass Artists build and maintain their own studios, ovens, and furnaces. I do a lot of behind-the-scenes work so that I can help people enjoy the fear and responsibility that comes with handling 2300F molten glass.
