Workshops


Howdy Friends!

It’s workshop time again!  The BIG news of the year is that I have closed the CASCADIA GLASS PAINTING ACADEMY in Bingen, Washington!  After over a decade of fantastic workshop sessions in the Great Northwest, I’m now setting up shop in Southwest Florida.  A HUGE THANKS to all of you who attended the classes up there, and for all the great memories and fun times we had!   Soon I will again be offering exclusive private workshop sessions down here in collaboration with various associate studios.  In the meantime, you can catch up with me on the workshop trail this summer at a variety of locations around the country.  Hope to see you in a session soon!  –  CHEERS!   Peter.
