Slumping your items in the mold of you’re choose. Then you can put together your birds. You’ll have to come back and pick up your finish pieces.

Our 1st year anniversary for Toy Town Stained Glass is coming up Sept 13 & 14 2014.
I want to thank all my students for participating in my classes. A year ago I started to teach stained glass to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with others in making beautiful stained glass pieces. It was a very successful year.
This year a lady Patricia Allen who has been kiln working for the past ten years is joining me to introduce kiln working. She has been to Las Vegas for the big glass expo and has taken several classes with some very well known artists Michael Dupille, Newey Fegan and Gill Reynolds. She also took classes from Peter Erickson (Silver/Gold Smith) in Gardner, Massachusetts
We are focusing on Jewelry making, slumping and fusing.
I am still offering Stained Glass Classes.
I am also stocking stained glass supplies and kiln work supplies.
Please join us for our Open House on September 13 and 14 2014 from 9:00AM – 5:00PM for more information.
