Hands on Private Classes

 

With Instructor Brandie Centi-Fislar

With focused attention during this private time, you will learn how to roll into frit (crushed colored glass), twist, tool, press and blow the molten glass. With great guidance, you will have a hands-on experience with hot glass to treasure for years.

 

Meet the instructor

Brandie Centi-Fislar is the Studio Coordinator at J Draper Glass. Her love for glass started in 2013 when she became fascinated with the medium during her first college class. Her passion for the medium grew as she continued to experiment and learn. Half way through the semester, she knew this was what she needed to do. Brandie graduated from Illinois State University in 2014 with her Bachelors of Science in Studio Art with a concentration in Glass. Since then, she has continued her work independently as an artist while also teaching and assisting at J Draper Glass for the past 4 years. Brandie currently resides in Bloomington, IL with her husband Andy, three dogs Lexi, Duke, Rue, and her cat, Scruffles.
