Glass Fusing Fun – Connie Beckers, Instructor
Ongoing Thursdays & Saturdays, this is the one that started it all and is the one beginners and folks with a Groupon will sign-up for. No glass experience required, this workshop is designed to offer a very basic introduction into glass fusing. You will start with pre-cut “blank” pieces of fusible glass and have up to three hours to create your choice of plates, coasters, soap dishes or trinkets using colorful shapes from my scrap bins to complete your designs. You’ll get a little glass cutting and nipping instruction to form your shapes and learn all about the kilns and what it takes to become The Goddess of Glass. This class is suitable for children age 8 and up accompanied by a paid adult.
Experienced glassers are invited for fusing and stained glass open studio time. $15 studio fee plus per project costs for either clear or color glass. Please reserve your spot by emailing email@example.com or texting 612-327-0283. Payment is taken at class.
BIG PLATES/Intermediate Glass Fusing – Connie Beckers, Instructor
Tue, Aug 16, 6-10pm – $105
For students who’ve attended at least one Glass Fusing Fun or other glass fusing class, this is your chance to ramp things up a bit. You’ll have four options to choose from, access to my supply of full sheets of dolor glass and some better glass cutting tools and coaching. More information and registration at THIS LINK.
FUSED GLASS GARDEN ART – Connie Beckers, Instructor
Sat, July 30, 10am-1pm – $49/Non-members – $39/Studio Members
Create your own fused glass garden art similar to the ones pictured above done by Susan Spiller. We provide the high temp wire but not the shepherd hooks. You’ll begin your pieces on pre-cut blanks of either clear or color of 6″x6″ or 8″x4″ and add your own unique designs inserting high temp wire to make them solid for hanging. Some pre-cut shapes will be provided and you’ll have access to all the scrap bins! If you finish early, make some more for a nominal fee. More information and registration at THIS LINK.
NEW! ART PLAY DATE – Alcohol Inks
Wed, Aug 3, 6:30-9:30pm
It’s a Play Date because I’m not that adept at alcohol inks but am willing to share my supplies and what I know about it with other creative types. For just $15, materials and supplies are provided in an informal setting. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 612-327-0283 to hold a spot. Space is limited.
NEW! WIRE WRAPPED JEWELRY – Nicole Collodoro, Instructor
Wed, Aug 17, 6:30-9:30pm – $49/Non-members – $39/Studio Members
