glass cutting & polishing Beginners Stained Glass Classes - $125 for 8 Weeks

Tool kits are offered in 3 different price ranges. Differences will be explained prior to purchase. Tool kits do not include the glass cutter. Students will try a variety of cutters and pick the one that suits them. Prices vary on the different cutters. All students will cut, foil and solder a snowflake the first week. Students begin their first bevel cluster in week 2. You will learn to cut, design and make at least 1 stained glass window in your 8 week class. All missed classes must be made up during the 8 week class. Material and supplies are purchased as the student's needs require. You may join classes that are already in session with advance notice. Please stop in or call to arrange. Classes are held:

  • Tuesday 10am - 1pm or 6pm - 9pm
  • Thursday 10am - 1pm
  • Saturday 1pm - 4pm

Advanced Stained Glass Classes - $125 for 8 Weeks

We encourage our students to think outside the box and be creative. All advanced students are on the same schedule as the Beginner's classes. Advanced students work at the same time as the beginners to offer encouragement and imaginative ideas to the new students.

Mosaic Flower Pot or Tray - $100

You will bring in a pot or tray and we will provide the background glass and cutters. You will decide on a pattern for your project. If you choose to use a precut kit, these are available for purchase. These beauties enhance the elegance of your yard or home.

Fused Dichroic Jewelry Tile - $150

You will cut and design a 3" x 9" tile using the colors of your choice. The tile will be fired in the kiln. You will either pick up your completed tile or you may choose to return to cut the tile into pieces for earrings, necklaces, key chains, etc. After the tile is cut, we will fire polish the pieces in the kiln and you will pick up the pieces another day. A word of warning ...most people who take this class return to make many more tiles. Be prepared to feel giddy! This is a Saturday class, however, we will put together a special week day class for you or your friends.

Glass Bead Making - Beginners - $160, Advanced Bead Making - $200

You will be introduced to the wonderful world of hot, molten glass. The class includes all the materials needed, minus the Mapp gas, which you will bring to class (available at Ace Hardware, Farm and Fleet, etc.). You will be able to go home, practice and feel comfortable enough to take the advanced class after completing the beginners class.

O'Reilly's Stained Glass Company will work with you to design your own class (minimum 2 people) if your interests are not represented above. Options include, but are not limited to: slumping, fusing, glass blowing, enamel plating. Feel free to inquire. We want to give everyone the opportunity to learn what they are interested in.
