Lis Simpson teaches classes in glass on the torch or in the kiln. She also teaches related jewellery creating classes.
She represented all of Canada for five years on the Board of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers and attended many conferences in the states learning techniques from others. There were no schools offering classes when she began 15 years ago; so she had a few lessons from one of the few GTA beadmakers at the time. Since then there has been much learning through the years on her torch about the nature of molten glass. As well, she became a certified instructor for the innovative fine silver medium of Art Clay Silver, and took the wirework course from George Brown College. She now teaches these jewelry techniques in her studio near Uxbridge. Several years ago she branched out into kiln-fired, fused glass, making paperweights, dishes, and other art glass forms. More recently she has been creating her own unique molds for the glass fusing process. She can be reached at email@example.com for more information
