Under the watchful eye of a professional artist, students assemble colorful pieces of glass into three sizes of plates. After pupils complete their designs, each plate is thrust into a kiln for firing, rendering them solid pieces ready for pickup from the shop within a few weeks. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own beverages to enjoy during the class.

The Goddess of Glass

Most students in introductory stained-glass-making classes are in search of a new hobby or a fun few hours, but not Connie Beckers. In 1995, she took such a course and soon built a career around the art of stained glass and kiln-working. Now, through The Goddess of Glass, she teaches others her craft during classes that cover the creation of jewelry, coasters, plates, and transparent overalls. She’s also been known to flex her instructional muscle as a guest artist on the DIY Network show I Hate my Kitchen, on the episode entitled Cramped Quarters, where she taught the show’s host and contractor how to make stained-glass tiles for a kitchen in the middle of remodeling.

The Goddess of Glass also sells artwork and gifts out of a separate retail shop. Patrons can commission a custom piece, such as a stained-glass window, or peruse a collection of pieces by more than 80 local artisans. The shop’s staff can also advise clients who need custom framing, helping them to pick the proper matting and frame so that their Richard Nixon rookie cards really pop.

    “Best date night or girls night idea ever! Connie was fantastic as a host and teacher She was hands off when students wanted to let their creative spirits flow and hands on when we needed some guidance She spent time with every student getting to know them by name and giving us good tips along the way And as a non creative person, I had so much fun and made something I will definitely use!”

  • “The class was informative and offered deals for returning students as well. Fun and good for beginners”

  • “plan way ahead, not many class times available and in the summer, a weekend class time is not first choice.”
