Frequently Asked Questions
How many people are in a class?
I require a minimum of 2 people to run a class. There are a maximum number of 6 students in the Intro to Stained Glass course, and a maximum of 4 students in the Intermediate Stained Glass Panel course.
Can I bring my own design to the Intro Class?
Although there are about a dozen designs to choose from, if you wanted to do something different that’s okay too! As long as it’s doable as a first project for a beginner in the time that we have then you can do it in the class. On average, a first project will have 8 to 10 pieces in it. Contact Corinne to inquire about your design and if it will be doable in the class.
I have a group of friends that want to take a class. Can we arrange a specific date?
Absolutely! I require at least 4 people to arrange a group class. Contact Corinne to arrange a date that works for you.
Do I need to be a member of Makerlabs in order to take a class?
No! Anyone is welcome to take a class in my studio space.
Do you do private classes?
Yes. Private classes are available at a rate of $25/hr plus materials. Please contact Corinne to arrange a private session.
Do you do custom orders?
Yes, I’m available for custom commissioned work. I prefer to stick to my style of non-traditional glass work, but if you have an idea of something in mind, please contact me with details.
Is a deposit required for custom work?
Yes, I require a 50% deposit before any work is started.
How does the process work for custom orders?
Once you provide details with what you’re looking for, a pattern will be made up and emailed to you for approval. Please note, once the pattern is approved, and materials, colors, and sizing has been decided on, and work has commenced, changes cannot be made to the pattern and the deposit is non-refundable. Depending on the scope of the project, and my availability, orders can be completed anywhere from 1 week to 2 months.
Packages are shipped in lots of bubble wrap in a cardboard box for suncatchers, or encased in dense foam and multiple cardboard boxes for panels and larger pieces.
Can you install windows?
Possibly if you’re locally based. Please inquire when discussing your commission
What shipping company do you use?
All orders to Canada and Internationally are shipped with Canada Post. For US customers, I use a service that takes my packages across the border and ships them with USPS. This ensures no duties will be charged and your shipment will come with tracking and will arrive much faster than if I shipped directly from Canada. If in the Vancouver area, a local courier may be used for same day delivery provided that someone will be available to sign for the package.
How long does it take to receive an order?
Orders will arrive in 1 to 2 business days for local customers, 5 to 7 business days across the rest of Canada, 4 to 5 business days for customers within the USA, and 6 to 10 business days for International shipments. Please note, that customs can hold packages, which I have no control over, and it is possible that some international orders can take 4 to 6 weeks to arrive. The customer is responsible for all duties and tariffs applied by your country.
