Fine Art Glass



Studio Xaquixe as a teaching institution has been working for over eight years

to offer a diverse set of courses on the principal techniques of sustainable glass production.
What makes our coursework distinct is that we teach within an ecosystem.
Fundmental to our teaching process are the learned skills of ecological practices and the recycling of materials in our work.
The techniques we employ are unique to the infrastructure of our facilities
and the personalized attention each student receives in our workshops
offering guidance on the safe handling of tools, materials and ovens
applied in accordance with the techniques of each course and the impact on our environment.
Click on the quick list of our slate of classes:

1. Glassblowing
2. Fusing
3. Kiln Casting
4. Sand Casting
5. Glasswork Intensives

For the student looking to advance beyond the introductory skills,
the Master Classes offer advanced level coursework in each technique.

In addition to our regular set of courses on offer

Studio Xaquixe also frequently partners with international artists to offer glass work intensives.
We partner with talented artists from around the globe
to extend opportunities for students to mix glass work with other techniques and mediums.
Some of our glass class intensives are made possible
by a collaboration with the Centro de las Artes de San Agustin (CaSa) through the support of Maestro Francisco Toledo.
