Stained Glass is Music for the Eyes!

Teaching the Latest Techniques in Kamloops


At High Country Stained Glass, we seek to serve as your Information Center for everything related to glass.

At this time we are UNFORTUNATELY unable to provide standard group Classes! We are able to do Private Classes, with some restrictions. Classes are limited to 1 (or 2 if from the same 'social bubble').  Private Classes will need to be booked ahead to allow for our preparations here. Private Classes are $30/hr/person. This does not include any supplies, tools, etc. 

We will re-evaluate our Class Schedule in the New Year.

We are passionate about our craft and we’re dedicated to searching for the latest glassmaking techniques. From stained glass to mosaics and fused glass, we teach everything from the basics to more advanced techniques.

For more information or to book a Private Classes, have a look at our class descriptions and contact us today.
