Glass Classes


Update 7/29/15:

New dates have just been added to the calendar for August 26th & beyond. I can only have a limited number of dates on the calendar without incurring extra fees; your patience is appreciated. The deal with expiration dates on vouchers is that you use it when you schedule the date. It’s okay if the class date falls beyond the expiration date.

There’s always Groupon deal running for FIRST TIME customers. Returning glassers should use the COME BACK option and schedule with up to three guests for the STUDIO MEMBER RATE of $39. BIG PLATES class is intended for those who’ve attended at least one glass fusing class with me and offers an introduction to glass cutting and options to use full sheets of colored glass. The cost of this class has gone up slightly to include an extra hour of time and the increased cost of materials.

PRIVATE GROUPS are the best deal with a rate of $35 per person with or without a special occasion to celebrate. I am running a SUMMER PARTY DEAL for June thru August — Hostess gets in FREE with 8 paid guests and everyone gets a little goodie bag! It’s easy–just phone or email for availability then invite your friends! Most people like to bring some food and/or beverages along, as well. I am available most weekdays and evenings, Sundays and some Saturdays for these. Phone 612-327-0283 or email Only one or two dates left … shoot me an email TODAY!

I celebrate three major milestones this Saturday, August 1st starting at 5:00 pm:
60 Years of Connie (7/27/55)
20 Years of The Goddess of Glass (10/5/95)
6 years of The Goddess of Glass & Friends (6/5/10)

The Warren is being transformed for this very special occasion into a wonderland of color and light! Selfie-Station, Crimson Lounge and the Glow in the Dark Gallery will be just some of the fun! Please RSVP on the Facebook Event. The Shoppe will be open until 8pm as the Goddess has requested that instead of gifts for her birthday that you purchase something in The Shoppe that will benefit a local artist and my shoppe!!

  • No glass experience required! You’ll start out with a few pre-cut pieces then rifle through my glass bins in search of the perfect colors and shapes to complete your creations. 
  • Some people like to start thinking in advance of what they might want to create in terms of design, pattern or color.
  • Bring beverages (of your choice) to enjoy while creating!
  • This fusing workshop is appropriate for kids (8 and older) and adults. Kids must be accompanied by a paid adult.

BIG PLATES/Intermediate Glass Fusing ($105)

Participants with previous experience will create larger plates and have access to full sheets of colored glass and advanced glass cutting tools while learning more about the kiln working process. We experiment with a variety of materials and methods to create unique works to keep or give as gifts. All materials are included.
