Hello Again Everyone!
Just wanted to add a few pictures of the new weaves that John and I are making. They are really woven glass....no faux here! We've also created our own molds so that the weaves look like woven fabric. We've found that people are fascinated by them! Classes for the weaves and mold making....which go hand-in-hand...will begin in April. The schedule is:
April 3, 4, 5, and 6 from 10:00 - 4:30 each day
April 17, 18, 19, and 20 from 10:00 - 4:30 each day
July Fourth Weekend July 2, 3, 4, and 5 from 10:00 - 4:30 each day
These will be the only dates for these classes until the Fall. The cost for the 4-day workshop is $650.00 plus the cost of one breaking tool that you may either bring w/you or purchase from us, but it needs to be this particular tool which costs about $75.00. You will love this tool....it is the best!
This is a 4-day workshop which includes cutting, designing, and making a 12" bowl from beginning to end. This project will include beginning to advanced cutting techniques, slumping, design, and more. Even if this is your first class, we'll teach you all you need to know to accomplish the task. To make your piece look like a piece of fabric, you need to know how to make your own molds, and that's exactly what you'll learn to do...make a mold to slump your piece into and then take it home w/you.
Also, for the last 2 years, we have offered a Contemporary 4-Day Workshop that has really been popular. This is the just the most informative workshop that I believe is available on fused glass. Please read the course description on the website. If you have never taken a class and want to learn ALOT at one time in one workshop....this is the one for you. We combine what you often find offered in 3-5 weekend classes in just 4 days, and at a fraction of the cost. You will get your money's worth in the class both in glass and information.
June 26, 27, 28, and 29 from 10:00 - 4:30 each day. The cost is $625.00 for everything!
If you want to schedule a class for an individual or group, just give us a call. We usually can make it happen when it is convenient for you, and no extra cost.
SPECIAL OFFER OF 10% OFF YOUR CLASS
If you bring another person w/you to take a class, we'll give you 10% off your class fee! If they bring someone.....yes, we'll give them 10% off their class....and if they bring someone....well, you get the idea! What a great deal!
Hope to see you soon. Remember, we only have 4-6 per class, so don't wait too long to send in your deposit!
