Open Studio Sundays @ Assemble
Assemble offers open studio time for students who have some experience via taking a class through us in the media studio they wish to use and can generally work independently. Materials may be purchased in clay and glass studios during this time. Community shelving is available for the storage of ongoing projects.
Keep in mind that Assemble is a shared artisan working space that can be all to yourself or full of quirky social creatives. The daily schedule for open studio time varies but can change based on scheduled workshops or holidays, check the event calendar before coming in.

-Fee: $20.00 per open studio session (materials not included)

In 2016, Heather was asked to teach and maintain the studio at WREN's maker space in Berlin where she found that her love for teaching and her love for stained glass were a perfect partnership. Her glass classes took off.
Now, Heather is a co-founder of Assemble. For her own art, Heather mostly concentrates on creating panels, sun catchers, and jewelry as well as learning new glass techniques to bring to her students.
