Mary’s 3 day Intensive Changed to a 2 day Intensive!

Mary’s 3 day Intensive Changed to a 2 day Intensive!

I did a lot of pondering and tinkering and decided it would be most cost effective for everyone if I trimmed a day off my ever-popular 3-Day workshop intensive, AND dropped the price substantially!

Students will still learn every aspect of my technique and we’ll still have a ton of fun…BUT! We’re gonna do it in 2 (longer) days AND for a savings of $650!  You’ll miss out on the goody-bag full of books, apron, kevlar gloves, and the binder with my materials and resource guide.  And, the piece of art you make will be limited in size…BUT..you’ll still get a course outline that covers everything we’ll do in class so you’ll be able to go home and make cool art on your own! And, you’ll still make a gorgeous piece of original fine art that will impress everyone including yourself!  You’ll still get the confidence you’ll need to go forth into the world of shattered glass and come out on top!
