Create your own masterpiece in glass. We provide the venue and professional instruction and you provide the enthusiasm.

OPEN STUDIO FOR ALL LEVELS OF EXPERTISE  from 9am – noon every Friday and Saturday!

This class is for all levels of expertise – from beginners up to expert.  You’ll love the diverse variety and you end up taking away much more from our classes.

For Beginners
You’ll learn how to score glass with ease, grind your piece, foil it and then proceed to creating your very own work of art.

The 5 week class is $75 and includes studio time, patterns, & all chemicals. Materials extra.  Beginners will have one of 5 projects to choose from. A tool rental charge of $5 will apply each week. A full refund of this charge will be credited towards your purchase of complete set of cutting/separating tools and/or soldering iron through Sundancer Stained Glass.

For the  Intermediate and Experienced
These are your designer classes.  Please bring your own tools or you can rent them here for $5.  If you’ve done stained glass before feel free to choose your own project.  If you’ve done fusing before, feel free to put together your own fused glass project. If you’re choosing a pattern that needs to be enlarged please make sure you do that before your first class.
 

Friday and Saturday mornings are ongoing! (see below for more information on morning classes)

Please register by calling (284-7640) or emailing the studio  sundancersg@myfairpoint.net

Walk-ins are also welcome during our Open Studio hours on Friday and  Saturday mornings. Do you have a project you’d like to start but don’t have the space at home? Do you need some help with a project? Do you want to just get away from the house and have a little “you” time? 

This is how the morning classes work – 

If you decide to take a 5 week class your class will start between 9am and 9:30am and run for 2 1/2 hours.  If you just want to use the studio at your convenience and pay as you go  – the minimum charge is $17 and will give you 2 hours of studio time and if you would like an additional hour (not to exceed noontime) the charge is $8.
