I started teaching stained glass to my friends back in 2011. They all loved what I was doing and the local shop had closed - so the way I tell the story is that they all ganged up on me and said TEACH ME HOW TO DO THIS! :-) I started off with 2 weekends students and FOUR week night students. The Sat / Sunday classes were most of the day for 4 weeks and the Tues/ Thurs classes were SUPPOSED to be 4 weeks also but turned into about 6 or 8! It was a learning curve for all of us. I don't know where the pics of my first students work is - can't seem to find my dang camera!....but here are few of the beautiful works from a few of the past years students.
