enVision Virtual Workshop Portal

It was April 2020 and we had been sheltering in place for a month in San Francisco. Hayley was busy sewing masks for healthcare professionals when a private message from a glassy friend popped up on social media, “If you ever decide to create an online class, please sign me up.” Her response was, “Interesting! Never entered my mind to do online classes – need to research more about it.” And that’s how it all started. How she dove deep into that rabbit hole . . . 

Almost five months later, she taught her first virtual class – a beta testing of her popular in-person Explore the Magic of Silver Glass. Another seven months went by before she offered her second virtual class – this time, a standalone, on-demand course and first of her Metal for Lampworkers series, Elevate: Coring Glass Beads with Sterling Silver Tubing and Handcrafted Caps.
