Have fun learning how to work with different types of glass in this two-hour workshop! Each student will learn to cut and shape sheet glass and use gentle heat to shape a glass stringer. Your unique flower sun catcher will be fired to a tack fuse, creating a textured work of art to hang in your window. Your beautiful creation will be available for pick-up the week following the class.
Ages 10 and up.
About the instructor: Sharon Warren is a glass artist with an engineering background. She has had the opportunity to show her work and teach internationally as part of a US Navy family. Her glass journey started in 2008 with glass blowing classes at Tidewater Community College in Portsmouth, Virginia. In 2010, her focus shifted to fused glass. While living overseas, she had the incredible opportunity to take the Orsoni Master in Mosaic class in Venice, Italy. After her family retired from the military, they settled in Belfast to be near family.
Sharon says, “Glass is a tool to bring my artistic visions, precious moments, and scientific experiments together in a way they can be shared with others. Everyone wants to find a way to leave their mark on the world, and for me, I find this through my glasswork.”
