Rocketfrog Stained Glass Studios is back in operation and Term 4 about to start at its Mount Gravatt East studio. Make a booking now to join in the fun at these exciting and stimulating crafting courses.
All Rocketfrog classes are kept small so everybody can enjoy the close personal instruction and relaxed and supportive environment created by instructor and glass-guru, Jet Carroll. Jet is the owner and instructor at Rocketfrog and holds a BA in Architectural Glass. She has been working with glass since 1991 and since 1999 has taught glass art to all ages including specialist art therapy classes.
Jet's approach is to ensure that while Rocketfrog classes encourage your development, creativity and dedication, they also open your world up to meeting new people and making new friends – they really are the total package!
