Lessons

At Da Artisti, we are blessed with an in-house teacher with a passion for fused glass. After taking lessons with Jennifer Kelly from Current Works of Glass in Carleton Place, Wendy, the owner, fell in love with this medium and has been enthusiastic about offering lessons and sharing her knowledge ever since.

We offer 1-on-1 and group introductory and intermediate fused glass lessons, and provide all the knowledge, tools and materials needed to succeed. Private group classes can be made available upon request.

Lessons will be posted in the section below. If you can’t attend a lesson due to scheduling conflicts, simply reach out to us and we’ll see if we can accommodate you for another time.

Lessons in different mediums are offered from time to time depending on demand and availability of experienced teachers. 

Due to the nature of this service, we would ask that you contact us to obtain more information.

Wendy is a patient and thorough teacher. She takes the time to show you the various techniques, corrects you when you haven't quite gotten the hang of it, and encourages you to let your creativity run free. She's extremely knowledgable and resourceful, and makes learning fun!
