Every once in a while we have a customer that is so enthusiastic and prolific that we cannot do anything, but to appreciate their joy. One of our most beloved customers, Gary Kocher, has been a regular at the glass shop for years. Displayed below are a couple of his beautiful creations. Gary is a jack of all trades. He is a fuser, mosaicist, and also works in stained glass. He has taken almost every class we offer. We count on a visit from him on Saturday mornings and particularly enjoy his "show and tell". We want to send a HUGE thank you to Gary for his continued patronage and kind words.
We have had increased interest in glass bead making over the last few weeks, so we thought we should post more information for those who want it. Right now, the best time to schedule a class is on a Monday. Available from 10am-7pm on Mondays, Julie will introduce you to the wonderful world of bead making. If you are more advanced than beginner, we can custom tailor a class to your specific needs and desires. Topics covered could be: hollows, basic florals, and advanced stringers; the choice is yours. Class sessions are private, but if you want to bring a friend - that is up to you.
Class fee is $40 per hour and glass is provided. Age limit: 18
