Classes being offer in November & December 2019

Hi Everyone,

Please note that Toy Town Stained Glass will be closed on Wednesday November 27th and on Thanksgiving Thursday November 28th.   Both Mark and I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

 

Classes being offer in November and December 2019: We are offering each class twice a week.   I need to get at least 3 people interested in the class on that night otherwise I will not run them.

 

I know several people have asked about fusing classes.   This class is 3 weeks.     If I receive enough responses from this email I will run another fusing class.   Classes will take place on Sundays from Nov 10 – 24th from 1:30pm – 4:30pm OR Thursday nights starting November 7 – 21 from 6pm – 9pm. Cost for this class = $249.00 (there is price limits on the glass but you can pay extra for more expensive glass.   All glass up to $13.50 a sq ft can be used.)

Starting ON NOVEMBER 7 or November 10th which we will spend time learning to cut glass using a glass cutter, strip cutter and straight edge, picking out your mold, getting your mold ready for the kiln, cutting your glass for the mold using a single layer piece of glass and putting your piece in the kiln.

November 14th or 17th you will make 2 – 4 coasters and learn a two layer. You will need to bring the design you want to do but don’t make it too difficult.

November 21st or 24th you will make a panel 6 x 8 using all scrap glass, stringers and frit.   Some have made Frozen snowman, flower, trees, candles, a wood scene et

Introduction to Texture molds:

You will be using frit to make your piece.   All materials, frit, glass and kiln time is included for this project.   Cost will be $55.00   Offer on November Tuesday the 26th from 6pm-9pm and/or Saturday November 30th from 9:30am – 12:30pm

You will pick from a welcome sign, pumpkins or let it snow (I have 4 each of them) and then I have only one peacock. Size is either 6.5 x 8 or 7 x 7. You will learn how to apply and decorate these texture molds. The more detail you want the longer it will take.   If you don’t finish you are able to come back during studio time and finish but you will have to pay for the studio time on that day. This piece will be fused and come out flat.   We will show you several ways to display your piece.

Serving platter molds: Because of the size and details on these pieces this will take two classes on Tuesday nights December 3 & 10 from 6pm – 9pm and/or one class on Saturdays December 7th from 9:30am – 2:30pm

Using fine frit to make your piece: We have snowman, pumpkins, and pansy to create.
