We LOVE glass, but we also enjoy working in other media. Sometimes I feel that trying something different makes me more inspired for my glasswork or I can even try the technique in a glass version. We've held a couple of private mixed media get togethers and they were so fun we decided to offer a few on select Friday nights! Workshop includes one piece unless noted. Yummy drinks included
Each workshop $25! Registration required (to make sure we have enough supplies)
New Workshops coming summer 2017
