You're craving a new, creative outlet.
You want to learn a new technique in a few, short hours.
You want to create a spectacular piece for your home or office.
You want to build a business as the go to person for beautiful, creative glass work.
In this workshop, students are guided step by step, through the process of layering different mediums, in reverse order, on the back side of glass to create a piece of art that is unique to them.
In Project #1, you’ll create a traditional style, multi layered design on the back of the glass.
In Project #2, you’ll create a modern style with a multi layered design on the back but you’ll be adding another dimension with crushed glass on the front of the glass piece.
Create an amazing piece of art on glass.

This has been one of my most popular workshops over the years and every student that has ever taken it, loves it.
I grew up with a creative mother who was a master at decorating and creating with reclaimed items long before it became fashionable. She was also a talented oil painter and seamstress. From her, I found a passion for the arts and in my earlier years, while raising a family and working in a different field, I still managed to keep some creativity going. I renovated houses, painted and repurposed furniture, sewed halloween costumes, clothing and quilts and learned to create stained glass pieces and mosaics.
I have always been a self employed entrepreneur and after pursuing additional artistic training and adventures in faux finishing and fine art, I opened an art studio for the public. There, I discovered a love for teaching and sharing the passion.
I eventually came to this place, Zenso Creative, LLC. My best adventure yet. I continue to grow and learn, practice and improve my skills, experiment, and most importantly, lift others up and help them find their creative spirit. I am grateful to the talented artists who are my tribe and to the students who come to us to share our skills so they can in turn, encourage someone else to find their creative spirit.
What if I’m not an artist?
No problem! Anyone can learn this skill.
Can I use any kind of glass?
For safety reasons, you should only use tempered glass if you are creating a window, table top or serving piece. For wall art, you can use 1/4” standard glass with polished edges to protect your hands while working. Do not use picture frame glass as it is too thin and can easily break.
How long will it take to create a finished piece?
With the drying time of the products used, it will take a full day to complete a finished piece. However, multiple pieces can be created at the same time.
What is the number one thing you would recommend for this workshop?
Let the leaf sizing tack up for as long as possible. It makes all the difference.
