Classes

Check out our Saturday Projects for an informal way to learn with more schedule flexibility.

Each week we have multiple open studio sessions.  Open Studio means that we are in “classes on demand” mode and you can choose your project size and style to fit your taste and your budget.  When you come in you can pick your project and we will teach you basic glass cutting and help guide you through your project.  All levels of fusers are welcome during open studio time.  No experience is necessary.

Reservations are recommended although short notice spots are often available.  Call ahead to make sure that we have room at your desired time.

Popular projects start around $15 and go up from there based on materials used.  Average project costs are $34.

Formal Class Basics

The main goals of each class are to have fun and make an awesome piece of glass.

We have a wide range of classes to choose from and most classes are repeated on different days and times.  If you would like a particular class that does not work with your schedule, just let us know and we can try to work with your schedule for future planning.

All classes must be paid for in advance to reserve your spot.  You can either pay in the studio prior to class or request an emailed invoice that you can pay with your credit card.  If you have any questions, please contact Rebekah at (417) 693-4991.

Classes will be marked regarding age appropriateness and recommended experience levels.  If a minor is NOT a class participant we encourage you to not bring them with you since the studio is full of sharp edges and breakable items.

During class times that fall during normal open studio hours, the studio will only be available for class participants or for project pickup.
