Glasstronomy Studios is always stocked with the basic necessities for both stained glass and glass fusing. Project kits, special promotions, “what’s new” and Studio custom products are also for sale in studio to both members and non-members. All other product can be ordered by our members from our dealer direct catalogues.
As a service-focused studio, we offer professional panel framing, pattern design, kiln firing, sandblasting, customer support and the guidance needed to select the correct material for your project.
Our latest offering for members is our Studio Spots learning modules page accessible from the Memberships menu. These modules showcase glass materials, techniques, and tools. Click on any applicable module link and it will launch our YouTube channel in a separate browser window. Our members have exclusive access to the entire series. Recently added is a module on painted glass casting. Stay tuned for more!

Our primary focus is to ensure a safe environment for you to create, learn, and shop.
What does that mean? We have taken the POST Promise pledge, a commitment that the Studio team and all visitors will practice the five key steps to workplace safety. We will:
1. Maintain physical distance (wear a face mask or face shield)
2. Stay home if unwell
3. Practice respiratory etiquette
4. Clean and disinfect regularly
5. Wash and sanitize hands
For more information on what that entails, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions section.
Our second focus is to get our creative people back in Studio, whether learning or working independently.
Workshops and tutorials — This season we are offering a variety of in Studio and Zoom remote learning sessions. In Studio, we are teaching six individuals at a time in short sessions. By Zoom, our instructors share detailed processes and best practices that you can do at home at your own pace.
Take care and be safe. We hope to see you in Studio soon.
