Girls Night Out: Mixed Media Style!
The Love of the Line, 2 sessions, $125
Possibly one of the most simple (but stunning!) stringer designs we have ever offered. Inspired by a quilt block, use your own blend of stringers to create a 1 square foot piece. You can leave it flat or we have a great dish mold from our private stash to slump it in.

Lace Vase, 1 session, $75
You may have seen this double layered frit beauty sitting on a shelf at the studio. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of it so it will be coming soon! Simple to make but with a tricky firing schedule that I will tell you all about.

Mixed Media Workshop, 1 session, $60
*PIC COMING SOON! Next mixed media day will feature CRACKLE PASTE projects! A fun filled creative adventure that does not involve glass (but is sure to inspire your next glass creation)! Work on two abstract mixed media pieces; layering, stamping, stenciling, and painting. I know I need a creative boost every now and then and mixed media usually does the trick for me. This relaxed workshop will include demonstrations and explanations for use of materials such as gesso, fluid acrylics, pastel sticks, etc. Participants will need to bring various size paint brushes, sponges or sponge pouncers and any stencils/stamps they may want to work with. The wood substrates, papers, paints, pastels, etc will be provided by Art Glass Array.
Graffiti Glass, 1 session, $145
It's back! From the originator of the "graffiti glass class"! I will guide you through translating mixed media style artwork onto your glass canvas. Students will learn the in's and out's of airbrushing on glass as they spray, drip, roll, and imprint paints. Techniques such as layering, masking, and building imagery onto fused glass will be covered. We will start with a simple 5x5 piece as a trial and then move to a 10x10 piece in this fast paced class.
Saturday November 17 10am-1 (ish)pm *FULL
Fusing Fundamentals: 3 sessions, $145
By far, the most comprehensive class for those interested in fused glass or just beginning. You will make 4 projects as you learn about glass cutting, compatibility, firing schedules, and slumping. You will work with frit, glass powder, stringers, and leave with pieces featuring a variety of techniques such as kiln carving, tack fusing, and full fusing.

Bubble Bowl, 1 session, $115

BIG bowl, 1 session, $250
You can't really tell just how big this bowl is from the picture but it is B-I-G! Transform a 21 inch circle into a bowl aprox 18" in diameter by 6 inches deep. Several design options will be discussed but ultimately it will be your choice in what type of technique you want to utilize in making the bowl: strip cut glass sections, frit, a couple concentric circles, a ring of murrini (already pulled), crossing glass layers to make new colors, etc. Class size very limited to ensure individual guidance.
Saturday Oct 27 10am- 2pm(aprox)

Beyond Beginner Classes:
these classes require taking "Fusing Fundamentals" first
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
Fused Glass Lantern $75
Your patio will look great as light sparkles through the glass you made in your custom lantern!
