Have you checked out all of the usual New York attractions and want to try something a little more unique? Explore the timeless art of stained glass at this fun workshop in Brooklyn!

Stained Glass is one of the most unchanged crafts in the world. The process and techniques you will learn in this workshop are centuries old, but the design you create will be one-of-a-kind. It will live in your home as a monument to your creative super powers!

This workshop is for anyone, from beginners to experienced artisans, who desires to dabble in small form sculpture, glass, color, and line design.
You’ll learn the fundamentals of Stained Glass as you create a work of colored glass art.

Artist and Designer Kelsie McNair will be your guide into the world of stained glass. Come to class with an idea of what you might want to make – a suncatcher, an ornament, or a nightlight.

Kelsie will teach you the entire Tiffany stained glass process – from selecting and shaping each glass element to soldering it all together.

On the hunt for things to do in New York with your family, friends, or colleagues? This workshop is ideal for anyone interested in small form sculpture, glass, and design — so why not gather up your gang and book now?

It’s our business to bring people together to make things and use tools that most New Yorker’s couldn’t and wouldn’t use in their homes. This is really difficult to do via Zoom. Gathering people in our post-COVID world requires that we take our guests’ safety even more seriously by implementing every possible precaution. To ensure your safety while at a at Craftsman Ave workshop, we’ve implemented the following precautions:

Small Class Sizes – We’ve always specialized in offering hands-on workshops for small groups of people. In the past, we limited our workshops to 8 guests. For the foreseeable future, we’ll be further limiting our workshops to 4-5 people max so everyone can be safely distanced from each other.

Last-Minute Rescheduling – If a guest doesn’t feel well on the day of their workshop, they can reschedule to a later date at no cost.

Studio Cleaning – With all the wood and metal dust kicked-up in our workshops, there are some areas of our studio that will always appear a little short of “clean”. However, you can be sure that we disinfect all tools and surfaces regularly and especially before each workshop begins.

Mask-Up! – Everyone – guests and instructors – must wear a mask, at least upon entering our studio. BYOM or we’ll be happy to provide you with one. After you arrive, we'll talk about everyone's vaccination status. Masks will only be removed if everyone present is vaccinated AND comfortable with proceeding without masks - otherwise we'll remain masked throughout the workshop. We will also have plenty of gloves available.

Hand Washing/Sanitizing – You’ll find plenty of hand sanitizer dispensers throughout our space and everyone will be asked to clean their hands before each workshop.

Upgraded Ventilation – We’ve upgraded the air handling systems in our studio, effectively doubling the airflow through our space. If any icky things make it into the studio air, they’ll be quickly whisked out by our exhaust system.
