Instructor Bios:

Constance Ducar is enthusiastic about working with beginning students and encouraging a love for glass. She sometimes incorporates fiber or wood as display options with her glass pieces.  

Nancy Adams:   "I have loved everything glass since I was a young child.  During the 70’s I dabbled in stained glass.  I discovered playing with fused glass at Mesolini Glass and became intrigued with techniques and processes for manipulating the glass.  Retirement in 2017 opened the door for the opportunity to pursue glass experimentation, and to share with others what I have learned."
