the enVision approach

enVision virtual workshops are created students' success in mind. Starting with Hayley's information-packed in-person turned virtual workshop, Explore the Magic of Silver Glass, to the NEW class, Svelte – Slender Bicone with Striking Silver Glass, both workshops include LIVE Zoom session(s) and two-week instructor support, plus access to rewatch all the prerecorded demo videos. There is also a standalone, on-demand online course, Elevate – Coring Glass Beads with Handcrafted Caps, for those students who want to immediately start working at their own pace.


Hayley Tsang Sather

Hayley Tsang Sather has a fine arts background with a BFA from the University of Hawaii and a MFA from Yale University. She has had her own graphic design studio for over 20 years in San Francisco. Her art and crafts background enabled her to explore many mediums – drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, woodworking, metal, and leather – but glass and fiber are her true passion. Hayley is known for her work with silver glass – soda lime glass laden with silver and other metals – and was a volunteer tester for Double Helix Glassworks and creates sample beads on its test batches for the International Society of Glass Beadmakers annual conference. Hayley has been teaching lampworking both in the United States and worldwide since 2008. She is excited to be offering her courses on this enVision Virtual Workshop platform and reach many more students across the globe.
