Conferences offer a unique opportunity to learn both beginning and advanced techniques and are often geared toward the unique strengths of that year’s conference host.
At many conferences, we do try to offer classes that consistently fill no matter our location such as Introduction to Glass Painting, Introduction to Lamination Techniques, and Restoration 101. In addition, we tailor the workshops at each conference to nearby facilities and studio resources that are unique to that year's location. We have offered classes in sandblasting, engraving, stained glass design, dragonfly software, advanced studio techniques, beginning and advanced kilnforming, fusing techniques, screenprinting, lamination, acid etching, angel gilding, drone technology and restoration photography, advanced restoration painting and glass painting basics, rondel-making and more.
We have been very fortunate to work with incredible teachers from all over the globe at our conferences - leaders in the field who have often generously donated their time to share their knowledge with our members and attendees. Past instructors include Steven Cowan (UK), Sylvia Laks (Costa Rica), Jim Berberich (USA), Narcissus Quagliata, Tim Carey, Hallie Monroe, Ralph Mills, Bryant Stanton, Rich Lamothe, and more.
