***  NEW CLASSES & DATES FOR 2013 & 2014  ***


NOTE: Damfool Computer is dying & taking website update software with it.  I've updated this page as far into the future as I can.  You can always contact me for info & dates!


The page has been reorg'd to be more readable (organized? me?  who am I, and what have I done with Sharon?)  The  new setup: SECTION 1 has class descriptions,  and SECTION 2 has class schedules with dates & contact info.   A bit more rational, eh?  Just don't forget to scroll down!
Here it is! Ready? Experience Levels and Class Descriptions: 
Want to snag me to teach?  YAY!  There's a bunch of different cool classes we can do.

 See the list over there on your right!

Shoot me an email and we can talk details.. 

Classes can be tailored & I can be bribed.



























Experience Levels:

Beginner:  I'm not teaching beginning classes anymore, sorry.  But I can refer you to classes & teachers in the SF Bay Area - shoot me an email! 

Experienced Beginner:  Classes for students who have completed beginning classes or equivalent, and practiced a bit. Should have some control and knowledge of basic techniques. 

Intermediate: Classes for students who've had more torch time, can control hot glass, make base beads in a reasonable time, and are okay with dots, stripes, etc.  You need to have spent some time playing with glass, and be comfortable.
