The Goddess of Glass offers quality art classes for all ages! Please send questions via email and expect a response within 24 hours.

10/13/16 News: Changes are happening in the glass industry forcing two major manufacturers to close their factories which, in turn, is forcing my local supplier (and teacher/mentor), Joe Ring, to close his retail supply business. Also, my materials costs have increased about 15% and now I’m in the process of finding a new wholesale supplier which could mean more increases.

This change affects the glass classes only. After giving this a lot of thought, I’ve decided to make minor changes to the class projects offerings instead of raising prices. This is really the only reasonable thing to do considering the number of pre-paid vouchers I sell. Changes will mostly be noticeable to those who’ve been to glass fusing fun before. Some of you felt pressure to complete so many things in class anyway so I’m really doing you a favor 😉 I will still have those additional projects available for a small fee should you find yourself with some extra time.
I will continue my relationship with Groupon for 150 new customers a month through their marketing efforts while I nurture those with an interest in pursuing more and varied art classes. The Groupon equivalent deal is always on my website for your own personal use or gift giving!

Glass Fusing Fun – Connie Beckers, Instructor
Ongoing Thursdays (7-10pm) & Saturdays (10-1pm or 3-6pm), this is the one that started it all and is the one beginners and folks with a Groupon will sign-up for. No glass experience required, this workshop is designed to offer a very basic introduction into glass fusing. You will start with pre-cut “blank” pieces of fusible glass and have up to three hours to create your choice of plates, coasters, soap dishes or trinkets using colorful shapes from my scrap bins to complete your designs. You’ll get a little glass cutting and nipping instruction to form your shapes and learn all about the kilns and what it takes to become The Goddess of Glass. This class is suitable for children age 8 and up accompanied by a paid adult.
