Day Breaks Glass Studio in downtown Bethel, houses teaching artist, Dayna Sabatino's personal stained glass and mosaic art studio. The studio has a workshop space for our extensive course offerings in those mediums. Our Guest instructor Series welcomes various skilled Artisans sharing one day workshops in their specialized craft.
We take pride in offering space to take a break from the daily goings on of life, to learn hand crafts and to be creative.
Day Breaks Glass Studio offers custom stained glass windows and mosaic artworks. With 20 years of professional experience in the craft, Dayna will be offering her commissioned works from this new location and a chance for you to visit the space and view works in progress.
We also look forward to utilizing this space as a think tank for providing extensive artful opportunities and community projects.
our Workshop space offers an extensive schedule of classes in glass and mosaic art from one-day workshops to multi week courses, beginner and intermediate classes, and open studio space.
Open Studio hours
Use our space and tools to work on your project. Be it stained glass or mosaic, you can schedule a time to come in and work. You must have experience in the craft as this time will not include instruction. We have worktables, grinders, glass cutting tools and soldering stations for you to use. You must have your own materials: copper foil, solder, glass, and tile.
Punch cards are for sale for those of you with more ongoing projects
If you are not finding the workshop that fits your schedule or you would be more comfortable learning in less of a crowd, we offer private lessons.
Private lessons will be scheduled on an individual basis. For rates and to schedule, email us or call Dayna at 802-392-3541

"Dayna is a fantastic teacher and has a gift for sharing the process of stained glass with her students. She made it fun and informative, and she was always there to help.
But a true gift she has is letting the student work through challenges
(with support and guidance)
and empowering her students to explore and "master" the medium and design process."
