Chlas workshop But equal to begin with that strange 'CH' in the company name, for why it is not just glass studio? The name Chlas workshop refers to the name of the owner: Marcha with ch, which actually was a mistake by her father at birth declaration. Initially working in the studio Chlas existed only from realizing stained glass and Tiffany assignments and restorations. Pretty soon the question came from people who came to take a look at the studio, "Give you courses and workshops?" To this question is responded and began the first students to sign up. Some are now years later, still on course, not because they can not, but because it is so nice and cozy. Courses are taught in small groups of up to 5 to 6 students and in sessions of about 2 Â½ hours.
