Drop us an email, give us a call, or stop in to register. Class spots are reserved with payment, so we encourage students to register in advance. Class sizes are small (5-7 students) so spots fill quickly.

We do make every effort to accommodate students who could not make a class due to personal reasons. Alternate dates, or make up classes are at the discretion of the instructor.
- Will I need to provide my own tools to take a class?
All students have access to shop tools and machinery while taking a class. We encourage the purchase of some basic tools so that projects can be worked on outside of the classroom.
Jacki has been a stained glass artist for 15 years now, and an instructor for 13 of those years. She has been at Macie Art Glass since we opened four years ago. Jacki has a particularly keen eye for color and enjoys the fine details that go into creating a piece of stained glass art. The most enjoyable thing she takes away from teaching is: "seeing someone gain appriciation and joy from working with glass."
Michael is the owner/operator of Macie Art Glass and has been working in glass for 23 years. When the opportunity arose four years ago to open an art glass studio, Mike jumped at the chance. Being hands on in the day to day operations, you will likely find him repairing an old window or on a job site planning an installation or restoration. Teaching has always been a passion for Michael, and being able to share his knowledge for preserving an age old art is very rewarding for him.
