Try your hand at designing a piece of art with layering colored glass. Glass workshops are a great opportunity to experiment with a new medium without the commitment of an 8 week class and pressure of purchasing glass. Students will have a wide variety of colored sheet glass, frits and millefiori (irregular mosaic-type class shapes) to choose from to create a landscape, seascape or cityscape. Examples will be available to inspire you! Finished glass pieces look great in windows as sun catchers or as simply displayed as a work of art. No experience required. Materials and firing included. Register by Feb. 1st.

Students will learn how to make an heirloom spoon ring from their family silverware or flea market find. Spoons (or forks!) must be made of sterling silver or silver plated nonferrous metal. Steel and stainless steel are too hard to be worked with the MAC jewelry studio tools. If students are unsure, they can just bring them in for instructor approval the day of the workshop. A selection of spoons will be on hand for purchase in case a student doesn’t have a spoon made of workable metal.
The spoon ring workshop will teach students basic metalsmithing skills, including annealing, cutting, sawing, filing, hammering, bending, sanding, and polishing. Students may be able to complete more than one ring if time permits. Beginners with no jewelry making experience are encouraged to bring extra silverware in case they run into problems on their first attempt. Register by Feb 1st.
