Artist Ilene Layow tailors each session to her students’ experience levels and artistic goals as she leads them through the steps to make their own glass projects or jewelry. During each glass making class, students may create pieces such as suncatchers, coasters, glass jewelry, or two medium-sized bowls using several different kinds of glass, and jewelry students can fashion necklaces, earrings, or bracelets. All materials are included, and classes last up to two hours; scroll through the class page for more information.

Eye Studio

While some artists gravitate toward certain media, Ilene Layow—or “Eye” to her friends since childhood—unabashedly loves them all: glass, pencil, clay, pastel, metals, acrylic. Her body of artwork is staggeringly diverse. She has designed murals for both homes and businesses, painted family portraits, created silver jewelry, formed intricate candleholders out of clay, and fused glass to form night lights perfect for scaring off closet monsters that hate beauty. She has even developed her own art form she calls “formscapes,” which combine the gentle contours of landscapes with abstracted shapes. In flexible classes tucked into a tidy ranch house, she introduces many of the crafts she loves to teen and adult students.
