CLASSES

**In the OFF-SEASON (September-May), call 609-494-7600 to check our hours, as they are subject to change. In the summer we are open daily, 10am-5pm.**

Most of our classes are walk-in workshops, suitable for all ages! This means you do not need an appointment (although we do appreciate the heads up!). Classes that require a reservation are specified as such. It takes about 1.5 to 3 hours depending upon the size of piece you make. We also offer custom sizes to suit your design needs as long as we have advance notice. This is a GREAT IDEA for parties and fundraisers! One project per person except when working on a very large project or when parents are helping small children. If you have 4 or more people in your group, or if it is a rainy day in summer please call to schedule in advance. Otherwise, for walk-ins, stop by any day we are open between 10am-3pm.

Stained glass is one of our most advanced classes available, and you must be at least 15 to participate in these classes.
