Instructor Bio: 

Howdy, I do stained glass sometimes. And I have learned enough to share a bit of that with y'all. I am a lawyer by day, but previously worked a chef, and a page at a library, and a landscaper, and just about every odd job under the sun. I love to make art and I am so excited to share that with others.


1st Floor Room

This educational room has seating and tables suitable for instruction away from the noise of the main workshop. It is located on the first floor of 770 Chapel Street. Guests should ring the MakeHaven doorbell, then proceed down the long hallway. When you get the main MakeHaven staircase by the double elevators, rather than go downstairs, proceed through the double glass doors, take a right down the hallway and you will see a room with a big robot sticker on the door.
