WELCOME TO DIAMOND ROCK GLASS STUDIO!
Hi, everyone, my name is Michelle Arnott and I have been enjoying stained glass as a hobby since 1996! My hobby became my business in June of 2018 when we opened Diamond Rock Glass Studio where I have been teaching classes and sharing my passion for glass. In March of 2020, I had to close my business temporarily just like many other small businesses due to the government mandates surrounding COVID19. It was during this time that I decided if I cannot share my love of glass with you at my studio, I will then bring my studio projects and ideas to you in your home. Many people are not getting out as much as they are used to or would like to be, so I really hope that I can reach out and share this hobby with you that can bring you hours of enjoyment, reward and satisfaction. With my virtual videos, I walk you through each project step by step beginning with my very first video which carefully covers in detail, every step from start to finish. This is a great video if you have never cut glass before, OR if you cut glass in the past and need a refresher! At the end of each video, I will introduce a kit that will include everything you need to make each particular project. Welcome to my world of Color and Light!
In June of 2022, I have had the honor to begin working with a very talented local artist and friend, Judy McMillen, who has agreed to draw patterns that I will demonstrate during virtual learning videos. Judy is very gifted in photography, watercolor, chalk, etc... and most recently, stained glass. Judy took a class from me a couple of years ago and since, has shown me some original patterns she drew inspired by her own photography and artwork. I was so impressed with her patterns, I asked Judy to work on a project with me where she draws the patterns and I introduce them during my virtual learning videos. Well, let's just say, Judy has been busy drawing amazing patterns since, to put it lightly. You may view and purchase Judy's amazing patterns on her website www.glassartdesignllc.com. I feel very honored to be able to introduce her patterns as well as her incredible talent.
