Looking for some fun, short glass classes this summer?  Well here’s your opportunity!

In June we will be hosting a Summer Stained Glass Workshop – Fabulous Garden Stakes. (6/21-6/28: 1:00-4:00)

2 sessions, 3 hours ea. Cost: $100.00 and includes 3 12″ copper rods; Students must have their own tools and supplies.
Join us this summer to make unique and charming stained glass garden stakes to decorate your yard or to give away as gifts. This course will give basic instruction in glass cutting and shaping, foiling and reinforcing a free form piece, soldering and finishing. Come celebrate the season with us!!

In July we’ll host a Summer Mosaic Workshop – Bird Bath Spectacular! (7/19 – 7/26; 1:00-4:00)

2 sessions, 3 hours ea. Cost: $100.00. Students will need to bring 2 10” terra cotta pots and one 16” terra cotta tray. Students must have their own tools and may bring in scrap glass from home or purchase glass at the class. Additional supplies needed may be purchased at the studio and include grout, adhesive, and silicone.

We saw the idea in Glass Patterns Quarterly magazine and thought, “How cool is this?!!” And then we thought, “What a great class this would make!” So join us this summer and create a lovely bird bath for your garden. Whether you have done mosaics before or are trying something new, this is a fun and easy class. Some glass cutting and shaping skills are helpful but not necessary. Students may use the pattern in the Glass Patterns Quarterly magazine or create their own design to apply to the terra cotta pots and tray. Note: some may need to do some work at home between classes or plan to book additional studio time to complete the project.

Finally, in August its our Summer Fusing Workshop – Wind Chime Extravaganza! (8/23 – 8/30; 1:00 – 4:00 PM)

2 Sessions; 3 hours ea. Cost: $100.00. Includes fusing fees. Students must have their own tools and supplies.
Looking for a way to create beautiful music for your garden or yard? Then this class is for you! Join us for a short lesson in fusing and then jump right into creating your very own unique wind chime. Topics covered may include glass cutting, shaping and cleaning, layering of glass to get different effects, kiln programming and finishing techniques. No fusing experience is necessary.

Students wishing to sign up for all three workshops will receive a 30% discount on the class fees when all three classes are paid for at the same time.  Students who have signed up for and paid for at least two of the workshops will receive 20% off tool and supply purchases at the time of the purchase.  No date changes or make-up classes.
