Dayna has studied and created stained glass and mosaic art for many moons. Beginning in the Bay Area of CA., she has worked alongside many talented glass artists around the country. Within her first few years in the field she found herself building commissions, teaching classes, restoring windows and creating her own pieces of glass art.
Dayna currently lives on her homestead in Bethel, Vermont with her husband and 2 children. As a teaching artist, she travels to art schools throughout Vermont and along coast of Maine, with a set of courses that she has developed.

Ed has been involved with art and creating things for most of his life. After moving from Pennsylvania to Vermont with his wife in 2001, on a whim, he signed up for a stained-glass class right here at Shelburne Craft School. He was immediately hooked. Since then, he’s created many stained-glass pieces; both traditional flat panels and 3-dimensional objects like jewelry boxes and lampshades. Ed has always enjoyed helping others learn and eventually transitioned from student to teacher. He taught stained-glass classes here at SCS from 2009-2013 but had to give up teaching when a change in jobs required him to travel frequently. Now back in the area full-time, he’s excited to have the opportunity to get back in the classroom and help others explore the art of stained-glass.
