Instructor Biographies

Meet you instructors, Rocky and Becky, they make a great team. Rocky brings the jokes and an immense amount of knowledge that comes from over 4 decades of working with stained glass.  He has been the lead stained glass instructor at PGC for 9 years. Rocky is proficient in all forms of stained glass as well as fused glass.

Becky keeps both Rocky and students on track making sure all gain as much from class as possible while completing projects on time. Becky has been working with glass for 16 years and a part of the PGC team for the past 13 currently serving as the Kiln Shop Coordinator. Becky’s main focus is kilnformed glass but over the years with Rocky’s guidance she has continued her education and passion for glass while exploring stained-glass. She has a love of the traditional but also enjoys pushing the medium by working in three-dimensional stained-glass forms.
