About the ​Instructor

Hey there, I'm Samantha Calder.​ I lead an ever-growing community where I help stained glass and fused glass hobbyists learn about their craft. As a glass art instructor, I've been teaching for over 10 years. And my very first student, was me.

​Glass projects weren't so easy or pretty in the beginning. Since I live in a rural area with no teaching studio nearby, I had one stained glass book to get me started. The rest I learned through trial and error. And being a perfectionist, I ​ agonized over the details until I figured ​it all out.

​I've since honed it all down and created my 10 Golden Rules of Glass Cutting, which has been the cornerstone to my teaching success with students in my own studio. So even if you're new, or have some experience in glass ​art, the Glass Cutting Essentials ​will be​ the course that changes everything for you.

What People Are Saying...


"I love taking workshops with Samantha. After every course I'm excited and cannot get over how much  I learned from her. ​ I highly recommend taking courses with her."  ​

​Lucie, St-Eugene, Ontario


​​"Samantha is a great teacher and is very knowledgeable. I recommend her highly. I have taken the beginners twice, not because I didn’t learn the first time, always room for improvement and learning more, but because I wanted to do more."

Colleen, Glengarry, Ontario
