Heritage Glass Studio offers basic and "beyond the basic" fused glass classes that encompass basic skills such as cutting and design conception to create glass landscapes, pattern bars, glass weaving, and other more advanced techniques. Our small yet effective studio space also opens to well known visiting glass artists who come to the studio and share their talent and enthusiasm with us at Heritage. Keep your eyes on the page as classes are small and fill quickly.
