Spring 2013 Schedule

Published by in Notification · 10/3/2013 20:28:24

Ahhh, we are turning the corner to spring!! The schedule for March, April, May and June 2013 is ready. It's time to get some Glass Therapy!
New molds are here and some new classes. There are three classes you do not need Glass 101 for because they do not involve cutting the glass: Mosaic Light Boxes, Kids Kamp, and Frit Baubles & Stringers. The rest of the projects require Glass 101 as the prerequisite. All materials and equipment are supplied- you only need to bring your indoor shoes. The design you have for your project is always your choice..I have patterns here or you can bring your own. Can't make it to the scheduled classes? No worries, just let me know and we can arrange a time that works for you.
I will have a display of my work set up a Trinity  (main street) in Berwyn by the end of March. Check it out whenever you are in town as the pieces will be changed regularly. Also see my work at Frameworks in Peace River and at Stroke of Genius in Grimshaw. Log onto my Facebook page (and Like me) so you don't miss other events around the Peace including Farmers Markets, Adult Learning Workshops, Fairview Fine Arts Workshops, and my Open Glass House on June 8,2013.
Remember that the bowls and plates make great gifts for weddings, showes birhthdays, Mother's Day, family reunions, and charity auctions. But plan ahead..remember, the project needs to be fired after you make it!
