Brand New Courses begin in January 2017!

We are thrilled to announce our Winter/Spring 2017 courses. Our Pipe Series has been revamped slightly so that we can include some patterning lessons in each course. Dizzle's Headstart is back January 17, 18, & 19, and we have added another beginner course called Accessories.

In addition to that, we are introducing three new Series - the Fume SeriesColor Series, and Technique Series. These courses are designed to give students an in-depth look at a particular pattern or technique and increase their skill level in the subject matter. For some students, these patterns or technique classes may serve as an introduction, for others it will give them the opportunity to master that skill. Because of that, these courses are great for most beginners and for intermediate level students. We recommend that students are comfortable working with tubing before taking these classes.
