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.
