Start a new holiday tradition and make your own unique, handmade glass ornaments. In this two and a half hour workshop, we'll cover several styles of ornaments and the kilnforming techniques used to create them, including the use of textured design elements (frit balls, curved stringers, powders, etc.) and the heat transformation that takes pieces of sheet glass from square to round. You'll then have studio time and access to a broad palette of materials to create ready-to-string ornaments of your choosing. Your work will be fired after class and ready for tree trimming or gift giving a few days later.
This workshop will be held on Tuesday Dec. 4th from 10 am to 1:00 pm, and a special second date and time for those who can’t make the morning class on Wednesday Dec. 5th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Susan Cox is an artist who has been working in glass for 18 years. She has shown in numerous galleries and museums in the US and has had residencies in the US and Scotland. Her work often recalls her architecture background and our connection to a special place.
Cost to participate in this workshop is $45 guests and $35 members. Pre-registration is required and deadline for registration is November 27th.
