Additional Notes: All materials and safety equipment included with the material fee. We supply all of the glass. You don’t have to try to figure out what colors you might want to use. We have a wide spectrum available for class use. If you want to purchase some glass to use during open studio time, you will receive 10% off of you purchase during class, or during open studio. (Because we’re a non-profit, you never have to pay sales tax at SGS). When you buy glass at SGS, you save money and help support the glass arts. Thanks!
