CURBSIDE PICK-UP AVAILABLE DURING THE MONTH OF MAY:
Pick-ups take place around the back of our building. Since we’re in the hot shop working and construction is happening in the front, the back door is where we are doing pick-ups. The door is clearly marked and where we park. Please call 313-561-4527 to let us know your order # and what time you think you’ll be here so we can have it ready.
WHEN WILL WE RE-OPEN?
Good question! For now we are working with curbside pickup only and expect to open sometime in June. All classes have been postponed until July, 2020.
WHO IS WORKING IN THE STUDIO?
Our family of four, in isolation together! The Glass Academy is founded by two artists, Michelle & Chris, and they have two children, Jacob and Lucy, who are blowing glass with them, and also helping in the studio to ship and pack orders. Jacob on the left, he is working professionally in Pittsburg for a glass studio but laid off at the moment. Lucy is in the coral dress an amazing artist and she jumps on the video's to help me film the segments and ship the glass out the door. Your support thru this is amazing.
ARE YOU STILL SELLING VIRUSES?
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 July 2020 when people are more comfortable going out in public and our staff feels comfortable teaching since classes require working so closely together.
No cash refunds will be given.
Email us at [email protected] or call 313-561-4527 if you have questions.
If you purchased a gift card between March 18-22nd, you'll receive a FREE Twistie key chain in the mail. This was our first promotion to help with operating costs while we're closed. 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.
WE STILL NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Consider buying gift cards for classes & products and when we re-open you can use them, or shop online TODAY! We have two more donation checks we are writing from the CoronaVirus in Glass sales. We’ll announce the recipients this Saturday during our live feed on Facebook.
