Our first Inks & Drinks of 2020!! Enjoy creating your own art while checking out all that the gallery has to offer. Create a gift for yourself or one to give to a loved one. Your ticket includes instruction and supplies to create a beautiful set of four coasters using alcohol based inks on ceramic tiles. No artistic ability required! You will also enjoy a complimentary sampling of the Teafinery’s delicious specialty teas and homemade pastries by Renee Napoli. BYOB if you prefer. I will take your artwork with me to finish with UV protectant spray, bartop epoxy and a cork bottom. They will be ready for you to use and enjoy in about a week.
There is an option to add on a trivet that is only available with the purchase of four coasters. All materials are provided. All ages welcome. If under 13, adult supervision is required.

Refund or rain check for next class will be given.** In case of a mishap in any process, the artist and BrainVessel will work with the student to make it right.
My love for stained glass began about 20 years ago. I signed up for a beginner class and just took off from there. I haven’t used anyone else’s pattern since. (Well, except for Tiffany. I have reproduced a few of his masterpieces.) I enjoy the whole process from the idea, the design, carefully choosing each individual piece of glass and meticulously shaping them to fit together. I get most of my inspiration from nature. I marvel at the way nature is perfect, even when it’s imperfect. I love designing to suit my clients taste and environment from a six foot window down to a little suncatcher. I have custom made windows of various shapes and sizes, cabinet doors, lamps, boxes etc. There’s nothing like delivering something that moves someone’s spirit like only art can do. Today I teach the same class I started with. I also teach and enjoy working with alcohol inks, acrylic paint and glass mosaic but stained glass will always have my heart.
