Cultivate New Skills In Fun, Hands-On Art Glass Classes

Our classes give you every tool you need to form beautiful new glass pieces. You can choose from our extensive supply of over 11,000 glass art tools and materials and set your imagination free in our classrooms. From our glass kilns and glass fusing supplies to stained glass chemicals and accessory glass, we have everything you need to play with new forms.

Get Guidance From World-Class Glass Art Instructors

We invite glass artists at the forefront of the field to bring unique new concepts to the table. Unique glass workshops on everything from stained glass to foiling can invigorate your work. Whether you’re interested in dichroic glass, kiln formed glass, or glass fusing, we have a course for you! Many of our classes span over the course of several days, giving you the time you need for intricate and inspired glass art crafts.

Come Experiment During Our Open Studio

Don’t let a limited studio at home set you back. We open up our studio to glass artists of all backgrounds and experience levels. Simply bring your glass, chemicals, and accessories– or purchase them at Ed Hoy’s, and we’ll provide the basic tools and space you need.

You fire up your imagination, we’ll fire up our kiln, and together we’ll discover all the beautiful things you can make!  Click Here for more information.
