PRIVATE STUDIO SESSIONS

Sometimes an individual will request some “one on one” time with me in the studio. This is a great way to learn a specific technique, or tackle a larger scale project than can be completed in a workshop. These sessions are customized, have flexible time frames, and usually require a return trip to the studio after a kiln firing. During these times the studio is closed to other activities, and I put my normal body of work aside so that I can concentrate on you, and we can both maximize the experience!

PRIVATE STUDIO SESSION: 3 to 6 hours of customized teaching in a professional glass studio setting.

FEE: $175.00 -  This fee can vary depending on the project,  the time involved, and the number of needed kiln firings. An additional materials fee is usually required.

GIFT CERTIFICATES are available for workshops and private sessions.  A gift certificate will be issued on receipt of payment and can be emailed to the recipient of your choice!
