Wild Wire to Wearable Fused Glass

First Tuesdays of the month: July 6th, August 3rd. 10am to 1pm

This is a fun workshop that starts with a bit of metal forming used between layers of fused glass. We then design and create pendants or earrings. If you choose to work with wire only, that option is fine. 

The options of jewelry making with glass and wire are vast. Over 13 years of experimentation I've found some things that work well, and I'd like to share with people interested in glass and jewelry. In this workshop, we get right to work forming silver to embed between layers of glass that will be fused in a kiln. 
Students will have unique handmade glass pendants after firing or forged wire work to take home the day of the workshop. If they are interested in working with wire, small wire sculpture is an option to work on as well. 

All materials provided: Fusible glass, silver, copper, brass, wire, and ear wires. Glass paints and enamels, crystals, seaweed metal cutouts and more! 

  • This class is suitable for Adults.  (Children age 7 and up may attend when accompanied by a parent) Beginners welcome!

  • Fees: $50.00 each class or $200.00 for 5 classes

  • Class size: 5 - 9 Students

These are self-directed sessions, drawing from a nude model.  There is no instruction. We start with several 30-second poses and progress through 1, 2, 5 and 10 minute poses to end with three 20 minute poses. Models break for 5 minutes every 20 minutes with one 15 to 20-minute break in the middle. Suggested, but not required, bring a treat to share during the long break. We try to keep it casual and fun but quiet while drawing.

 Tuesday Nights Artists Group

Tuesdays, July 13, Aug 17, Sept 14, Sept 28

4 meetings plus an Exhibition on Oct 1, First Friday

 6:30 PM– 8:30 PM

Tuesday Nights is a series of art sessions for creative types. Creative energy works best through action and immersion.  So, come pull from the mental and make physical. Create a reality, a piece of art.

   

Each series is built around one project idea that ends in an exhibition. This is a way to advance your creative skills while socializing with others of your artistic ilk. We don't care how long you have been at it. Some of us have been plowing creative fields for a while. Others are just starting. What matters is your willingness to jump in and take chances. After all, it's only art.
