Castle Stained Glass

It’s the family trade, so I may as well get on the train!

My family’s businesses are here and also here, based in Washington State.  My mom was an amazingly talented stained glass designer.  I know many artists, and have no skill in stained glass, fused or otherwise, but certainly have more appreciation for it nowadays.

Here’s a local place in San Luis Obispo that offers a variety of classes for a reasonable fee.  If you’re looking for something new and creative, for a new hobby, and/or to challenge yourself in a new way, a glass class just might be what you’re looking for.  Not up for a class just yet?  Be sure to check out their variety of workshops!
