Colorful Creations

Try something new with Tulsa Stained Glass

Tulsa Stained Glass has been creating custom work and performing repairs for almost five decades. But these days, they also give Tulsans a chance to immerse themselves in the colorful world of stained glass with several types of classes. And a class at Tulsa Stained Glass isn’t a typical paint-and-sip experience. It’s an afternoon or evening of entertainment. We spoke with co-founder Richard Bohm to find out more.

3-hour stained glass classes


In these three-part classes, students learn about the art itself before building their own “EMOSY,” a term Tulsa Stained Glass coined to describe participants’ expressive creations. Before the class ends, students spend time in the “rage room,” where they throw symbolic dishes against the wall of destruction.

“It’s a therapeutic release,” Bohm says.

These classes are often themed and have a dinner party-like atmosphere, whether it’s date night, ladies night out, or a private party.

3-day beginner classes


Before these Friday-Sunday classes, students receive detailed videos. Bohm says it’s a serious class meant to set students up for a fulfilling hobby of making stained glass windows.

“They’re made in the tradition of ancient stained glass using the same process as the windows you see in the cathedrals of Europe. The teacher’s said to be the best this side of the Mississippi,” Bohm says, as he tips his hat with a sheepish smile.


Glass painting classes


All ages are welcome at glass painting classes, where participants learn about stained glass design and paint glass discs. Students take home a finished project ready to hang in their windows!

The studio also hosts other painting classes like wine glass painting and watercolor basics.
