Janet Bolton
Janet Bolton is our new instructor at Huronia Art Glass who is teaching the beginners class.  Janet has been doing stained glass for about 9 years, many of them under Rita's tutelage.  She is excited and passionate about creating and teaching glass art.  "I am in love with stained glass and feel a connection with the people here. They are a great bunch.  Working with stained glass is a wonderful stress reliever.  It's like a puzzle; where you see the finished creation clearly in your mind first then slowly and carefully make the pieces come together to realize your imagination. When it is finished only you can be the judge if you have really achieved your vision, but it is a piece of you that friends and family will always have forever."  

Her enthusiasm is infectious and she has tremendous patience to teach new students all about stained glass.

Cheryl brings 8 years of experience working with stained/fusing glass applying a variety of techniques and approaches. Her combination of creativity, artistry and skill form a strong basis to her role as instructor for Huronia Art Glass.
