March 1st - FREE STANDING BIRCH TREE FUSED GLASS ART

If you'd like to try your hand at fused glass, this beginners fused glass workshop might just be for you. This class will provide you the opportunity to create a 6 by 14 inch self-standing fused glass birch tree piece of art. You will lay out your piece creating your unique design on a clear glass base ready for the first kiln firing.  We will then “slump” fire them to their “S” shape so they can stand. Experienced students are also welcome.  Glass cutting experience is necessary, however fused glass experience is not.

 

Instructor:  Tresea Partridge

Time: 12::30 to 3:30 pm

Cost: $95.00 which includes all materials, instructions and 2 kiln firings. Please bring your own marking and cutting tools.

March 8th – "NEW!!” STAINED GLASS COPPER FOIL OVERLAY – WOLF OR BEAR

Looking for a unique one-of-a-kind gift? Or something special for your home?  Learn how to create the illusion of silhouette art. After learning this technique, you can create practically any image you desire.

In this 3 1/2 workshop, you will:

Pick your base glass, cut out your circle panel, choose your pattern, trace it onto the sheet of copper foil, and then cut it out with an exacto knife. Soldering, texturing and patining your piece come last. You will be shown tips and tricks when designing and assembling your panel and create your own stunning works of art. Every student will walk out of the workshop with a unique one-of-a-kind 6” stand alone panel.

For your base glass, students can bring that perfect piece of glass from home or buy glass from the store on the day of the workshop. The metal came will be provided and will already be bent into the correct shape. The copper foil overlay will also be provided.

A 6” metal stand will also be available for purchase if desired. This means that your unique stained glass piece can be displayed on a wall, in a window, or placed in the metal stand.

Since this is a hands-on workshop, previous glass cutting and soldering experience is recommended but not mandatory.

Other materials required to complete your panel are included.  Materials to bring:  a gold, silver or black sharpie, glass cutter and groziers, if you have the perfect piece of glass at home, bring it along.  Otherwise, you will have time to purchase glass from the store at the start of class.

March 22nd – KID’S EASTER EGG GARDEN STAKE

 

This is the perfect workshop to spend some time with the little one(s) to make a special keepsake.  This wrought iron garden stake is approximately 18” high and the fused glass Easter egg insert is approximately 6.5”.  The Easter egg will be pre-fused and ready for the kids to decorate using a variety of things such as wavy stringers, frit balls, different shapes of glass, carrots and eggs and some freeze and fused flowers.

Like the Christmas Decoration workshop, everything will be ready for them to come in and have fun.  You just need to provide the kids and the supervision.

Cost:               $75.00 per child

March 29th - CREATIVE AGATE PANELS

 

This is the second time we’re running this workshop because it was so popular and completely full when we ran it in the fall. 

 

Let your creative side shine through as you choose the colour and texture of your base glass, then choose from many different shapes and colours of agates as well as the complementary colours of your glass globules. Every student will walk out of the workshop with a unique one-of-a-kind stand alone panel.

In this 4-hour workshop, students will design, cut, and assemble a 6” round stained glass panel. I will show you tips and tricks when designing and assembling your panel to create your own stunning work of art.

A large number of agates will be available for students to purchase from the instructor and the glass globules are free. For your base glass, students can bring that perfect piece of glass from home or buy glass from the store on the day of the workshop. The metal came will be provided and will already be bent into the correct shape.

A 6” metal stand will also be available for purchase from the store if desired. This means that your unique stained glass piece can be displayed on a wall, in a window, or placed in the metal stand.

Since this is a hands-on workshop, previous glass cutting and soldering experience is strongly recommended. There will be a ring saw on site to help with some of the more difficult cuts.

Other materials required to complete your panel are included.
