Class Facts


Julia S.

Dublin, Ohio

"I took the stained-glass fundamentals class at Franklin Art Glass, and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and the class was fun. I learned a valuable new skill and met some lovely people in the process! My pieces are displayed proudly in my home. I’ve even used the techniques I learned to make projects of my own. Definitely worth the value!"

Katherine H.

Blacklick, Ohio

"I took the beginners in stained glass class over 30 years ago! When I took this class it was on a whim and because I found stained glass interesting. But what I found was a longtime hobby and love for stained glass. This class taught me the necessary skills to continue working in stained glass long after the class and even some of the basic skills I needed to work in glass fusing. It was a wonderful experience that impacted me much more than I’d expected."

Todd M.

Columbus, Ohio

"First and foremost, I want to say thank you for providing such a great class that helped establish a good foundation from which to grow and expand. I very much enjoyed the class, and thought the information being shared was at an appropriate level for everyone to take away added knowledge. From introduction of the tools & equipment to the progressive projects which provided introduction to the different types of applications/projects, it was great. I found that I was able to absorb everything and have been able to continue to improve my knowledge and skill set with the foundation provided."
