Dates Set For 3-Day Workshop!

The dates for my next 3 day Workshop Intensive have been set! There are still spaces available! Register now with a 50% deposit to secure your space in the workshop!

Here’s what recent class participants have said about the workshop:

“My husband gave me the gift of Mary’s 3-day advanced class workshop after many nights of dreaming about it. I wasn’t sure of what to expect other than to be inspired and intimidated by Mary’s expertise and beauty of her art. To say I was blown away is an understatement. Mary takes each dimension of teaching art and turns it into a stress-free and feel-free masterpiece. Like Mary, I also have a love of glass but Mary turned this into a whole new obsession. I would recommend anyone to take this advanced workshop. Mary has taken out all of the trials and errors she has gone through her whole career and gives you her secrets. This will truly inspire you and create a brand new passion of art, glass and recycling anything you can find. Thank you Mary for giving me a life long memorable experience!!”
– E. R.

“I just completed Mary’s 3 Day Advanced Workshop and all I can say is “wow”. Not only did Mary share many of her secrets but she also helped me create my very own piece of glass art exactly as I wanted it! The hardest part of the entire process was deciding what to create and then Mary took it from there. I’m not an artist by any means, but really all you need is an imagination and sense of humor. I completely stepped out of my comfort zone but am so glad I did. In addition to my new piece of art, I also met new friends. It was so much fun in fact, I want to do it again!”
– K.P.

“I wanted to express my thanks for a fabulous glass art class! Mary was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, encouraging, and fun! We produced beautiful keepsake canvases in her beautiful studio with her patient and friendly help!”

GLASS COLLAGE MASTERPIECE

Each step is presented with detailed instruction, class handouts, demonstrations, and lots of Q&A.

Students will leave class with not only a better knowledge of how to work with glass, how to source it, and how to set up their own studio, they will have time to create a substantial work of art!
