Sunsets and Silouettes   Cost according to size

This is a two part workshop. The first session, you will  create the sunset background. Then it is fired and  the following session you make the image.  Choice of project and  design is yours (I will help you if you'd like) and the size and cost  will be based on what your project is...plate, bowl, panel, etc.
Oct 7 from 7 to 10 pm  First Session
Oct 9 from 7 to 10 pm  Second Session

Bats and Witches Indoor Chimes     Cost $40

This is a cute little project just for Halloween. The witch is flying in front of a 6 inch moon with bats fluttering below.  The glass is tacked so that the images are raised. Very fun!  If you would like the moon to be a pumpkin or other image, that's okay too.
Oct 8 from 7 to 10 pm
Oct 21 from 7-10 pm

Jewellry and Magnets    Cost $50 (plus the cost of bails)

This project is a two part workshop.  In the first session, you will design a  dichro pattern of glass, 3x3 inches. This piece will be fired and used in the second session. Then we will explore making pendants with and without bails, using regular glass.  In the second session, we will cut the dichro piece into shapes for pendants. Then, making fridge magnets and brooches completes the session. Make as many as you have time for.

Fruit Bowl  14 inch   Cost $82
