Saturday at the Glass Studio
Feb 9, 2013
We offer a free glass art demo every day at noon.
On the calendar today for classes or special events:
• I Glass ♥ You
Say "Happy Valentine's Day" with a hot handmade gift. Our Studio Team helps you create a cast-glass heart that your loved one will cherish forever. We have three sessions today, starting at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. You can check availability and signup online here. ($35 Members, $45 all others.) These sessions are great for kids: for a more artistic and adult challenge, see below.
• One-Day Workshop: A Cast-Glass Heart From A Remarkable Process
Today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., you can show your love with an exquisite gift and also learning the way of pate de verre. You will craft a hand-molded heart using glass dust and paste, and your vision (not to mention the remarkable pate de verre process) will result in a new favorite keepsake just in time for Valentine’s Day. You can sign up here. ($90 Members, $115 all others).
• Two-Hour Class: Introduction to Flameworking
From 2-4 p.m. today, come get a taste of an addicting form of glass art—the molding of glass by way of a torch. In introductory classes you make beads and marbles as a way to learn the craft. You can then advance your skills by taking a two-night course that moves you from beads to figures (offered March 6 and 13). If you do well at that, you can then consider a two-day workshop called Blowing on the Torch that will be offered March 16-17. After that you can start looking at booking private time and calling yourself a Jedi master. To sign up for this first step, click here. ($40 Members, $60 all others).
