Announcements from Light Garden Glass Art

For anyone I told we were having a yard sale this weekend, I have cancelled due to rain.
I have rescheduled for June 10th & 11th
depending on weather.
 
Glass Racks
Finished Stained Glass
Clear textured, stained glass cut offs
Seconds, Trial Pieces, things that have been here too long….who knows what will hit the tables?!
(also household overstock!)
 
Too much stuff!
 
Need to make some room for more cool product!

 
On May 11th Spectrum Glass
announced that they are stopping
production of all art glass at the end of June.
 
As they are one of the largest art glass
manufacturers in the United States so this is
troubling to say the least.
 
We rely heavily on Spectrum glass.  It accounts for about 85% of our glass inventory, including System 96 for fusing.
 
Uroboros has stepped up and agreed to continue producing the System 96 line.  They have been partners with Spectrum 96 from the beginning and already make a considerable amount of their colors.
 
This is the latest from Uroboros this morning
 on what they can and can’t do.
 
 
 
The new
are a big hit!
 
Lots of blendable colors, outlines
and bubble art!
 
Almost as easy as coloring!
 
 Introductory Offer
 
Come in a paint a
6″ x 6″ square for
 
$12
up to 8 colors of your choice
includes firing
 
 
Available during Wednesday and Saturday morning workshops

This is Diane’s first attempt at glass painting.

and fused on pink streaky.

Great job, Diane!
 

It is getting to be that time of year when we schedule fewer classes.  Summer is such a busy time.  I know, it’s hard to fit it all in.  It goes so fast!  It is also a time when I have the opportunity to go out and promote our glass studio so that we can continue to bring you new classes and techniques.

 

We will continue to do our Flowers of Hope, Try Fusing! (OUR NEW PAINTING WORKSHOPS!) and open workshops on most regularly scheduled days.  You can always go to the website to see if there is a workshop scheduled.  If we have special events they will be listed.

Most of our easier classes such as Dichroic Jewelry, Table Lamps, Cabinet Knobs and Fused Glass Switchplates can be scheduled during workshop time as well as the dragonfly, butterfly and daisy dish casting forms.  Please email or call for availability. 

 

 FLOWERS OF HOPE Workshop

Even if you’ve never done any glass fusing before you can make an 8″ x 8″ fused panel to donate to Flowers of Hope.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
$15 buys you a base piece of glass, access to all frits, stringers and scrap glass, hanging hardware and firing. Come in and try your hand at fusing and find out how easy and fun it can be. You’ll also be doing a wonderful thing for a woman going through a tough time.
