We highly suggest parking on the corner lot (Trowbridge and Gully - we have a sign there) and then walking to the front door. The street has ongoing construction and the roads are very rough. Please use caution. 


CURBSIDE PICK-UPS need to be ordered online. Please call 313-561-4527 when you get to the studio to let us know your order # if you request it be brought out to your car. 


The gallery has a new look!  Come and check it out and browse the shop to see what we've been making during the pandemic.  Customers are able to browse the gallery, wearing masks and enjoying the summer heat with us!  :)


Our family of four, and a few key essential employees! The Glass Academy is founded by two artists, Michelle & Chris. They have two children, Jacob and Lucy, who are blowing glass with them, helping in the studio to ship and pack orders and you'll see them working on the live shows featured on Facebook.

Jacob was working professionally in Pittsburg for a glass studio pre-covid but was laid off as the pandemic progressed.

Lucy is an amazing artist and you'll see her as the tech support on the live shows.  On occasion she jumps on the video's to help me film the segments, but mostly she's doing shipping and tech support during the live videos. 

Nicole is working the office admin as well Etsy and assisting with class rescheduling.  Katie continues to work as the staff bookkeeper keeping everything organized and running smoothy.  Joey and Logan will be back for teaching classes soon!



YES! Please continue to support our efforts and purchase them. These are the non-contagious variety, and when they find the vaccine, we’ll make a version of that too! Overtaking the virus or something crazy and wild like that! You can order a CoronaVirus in Glass HERE.


If you were registered for a class that was scheduled during quarantine, we are crediting your class as a gift card that can be used thru December 2021 towards classes, gallery purchases, and online purchases.

This is the best way for us to track your purchase and allows you the ease in rescheduling your class that works with your time table. Classes will resume in September 2020 when the heat in the studio is more bareable.

No cash refunds will be given for any class purchased pre-covid.

Email us at [email protected] or call 313-561-4527 if you have questions.


Your gift card is on file so we can look it up at any time. Your e-receipt is proof of purchase. The code on your e-receipt is used to redeem the gift card. We do not mail anything.
