Erin K.Stained Glass Flowers and Cacti
Anytime someone is willing to open their home to share their passion with strangers, they should be commended. Norma is a gracious host as well as a gifted teacher. I've done multiple classes with her because I loved the experience. There have been full classes and times with just a few people but she always gives personal feedback and instruction. I have been able to grow in my ability and I have found inspiration to keep dabbling.
If you are wanting to try a new art, glass is a wonderful option. If you are feeling anxious about making a perfect piece, go in with the realization that you are there for a fun experience and relax knowing that every project I've seen leave her door was a good one. :)

Class was very good. It was a small group so she was able to tailor the class to everyone's specific needs, and gave lots of individual attention. Also we had fun!

Norma was so informative and helpful! She kept the class size small (5 students only) so that she could assist us at each turn of the process. It was really neat to learn how to solder, and I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in the art of glass!

Wonderful class! Norma is so patient, fun, and creative. We listened to records and learned to cut glass and solder. It was a very exciting afternoon.

Norma was a great teacher and I highly recommend this workshop! She was very helpful, knowledgeable, and encouraging. I look forward to seeing what other types of classes she offers. This was just enough to make a great piece and spark an intrest to make more!

Norma was great--she gave us freedom to do what we wanted (cacti or otherwise) and helped us with ideas. I wish I had spent some time thinking more before the class so I didn't waste time trying to draw a design. She had some beautiful glass available and gave us time to practice cutting on cheap glass before moving to the special glass. She offered us water and snacks while we worked and there was ample workspace for each of us. The cactus I made turned out great. Thanks!
