1st Class ~ Create a plate 8″x8″ – Sept. 8, 2017
Learn about different glass types such as opaque and transparent, iridescent to reactive. Learn to score and break glass, and about the physics of glass before creating an 8*8 inch food and dishwasher safe plate.

2nd Class ~ Two coasters, a lesson in reactive glass – Sept. 15, 2017
Copper based blues react to glass that contains sulfur/selenium thus changing the colours, or adding a hue, or an outline. A real mind bender, but fun!

3rd Class ~ Fused Glass Sculpture (prerequisite to this class is class 1) – Sept. 22, 2017
This workshop begins with a stand for your sculpture. As the basics of glass scoring and cutting have been covered in the Create A Plate class, the student can start their project as soon as the plaster base is finished and put aside to set.

4th Class Introduction to Kiln Carving – Sept. 29, 2017
Kiln Carving is a technique that combines glass fusing and slumping to give a carved effect to your glass work. Using fibre paper to create a shallow ‘mold’, we then stack the glass on top of the cut paper before firing.

$70.00 per person includes regular glass for an 8×8 piece, use of tools, and firings. There will be an extra charge if iridescent glass and additional fibre paper is used.

5th and 6th Class ~ OPEN FORM ~ prerequisite Class 1 – October 6 and October 13, 2017
Now you can play and create what you always wanted to do.
(Extra glass will be at an extra cost.)
Hanging bird bath for your deck or yard.
Wind chime
A glass panel for your window or a night light…
Nightlight fixtures are $8 glass is included
In class 6 we finish our chime and birdbath with fish line or wire.
You can include beads, feathers, or other decorative elements.

First time working with glass

★★★★★
5 5 1
I visited Annemarie's studio last summer when I was travelling through Kelowna and created my very first glass dish. I had never worked with glass before and she was an excellent teacher. It was totally hands on: you do all your own cutting and shaping, you get to choose whatever colours and different types of glass that you want, you get to be totally free and Annemarie helps you if you get stuck or can't decide what to do next. I created a 10" plate that I have displayed in my window. I love how the light shines through it and I can't wait to go back next time I am in the Okanagan. My next plate will be even more experimental! Thank you Annemarie!

Inner Artist

Annemarie, thank you for teaching me how to bring out my inner artist. You are so patient and kind and I always enjoy being in your shop and creating my tiny pieces of fused glass jewellery. I like how I get to use tools. This is a new thing for me and it's really quite fun. There is so much more to your studio than just fusing glass. It's like learning to be a little bit handy too. I look forward to the next session.
