    We're going to have fun making beautiful, colorful tealight/votive holders!  They certainly make a great Mother's Day present, or you just may want to keep it.

    This is a beginner class and for those that have some experience with glass, even better. We will work closely with each participant to carry out your design ideas. You're going to have fun designing and choosing all the pretty glass colors and sparkling embellishments.

    In this art glass workshop, you will learn the very basics of kiln fused glass work. Topics discussed will be safety, glass compatibility, glass colorings, types of glass, tools needed, kiln information on fused glass manufacturers. Demonstrations of how to score and break glass, layout and design suggestions. Bring in your ideas for art or you may want to look through my many colorful fused glass pictures. 

    Your art piece will be carefully fired and annealed in a digital kiln at Palm Cottage Glass Studio. After firing, the pre-made tealight glass square holder will be permanently attached to the back of your art glass panel. Your beautiful finished tealight will be brought back to the Columbia County Library for pick up Mondays 5:30-6pm or alternate arrangements can be made.


    Closed toe shoes must be worn. Safety glasses must be worn for eye protection during class for scoring, cutting and grinding glass and will be provided. Wear very casual comfortable clothing and if needed a plastic disposable apron will be provided. Standing and sitting is required.


    Each participant will be furnished with a set of glass tools for use in class. A good color selection of art glass along with many different embellishments such as frit, stringers, and cabochons will be provided.
