Scrap Attack!

Friday, March 14, 9-5:30 or Saturday, March 15, 9-5:30

$150 includes all materials, supplies, and firings

Also known as “attack that scrap pile; ideas beyond jewelry”, this class will help you tackle the ever-growing piles of scrap glass accumulating as you practice your craft.

Come spend the day playing with scrap material and leave with the knowledge and skills to transform your leftover bits into true works of art. We’ll cover six different techniques as well as variations on each approach.

Projects include mesmerizing coral pieces, a beautiful watercolor technique that uses plenty of that clear glass taking over your studio, a stack ‘em up high design that uses even the tiniest bits, and more. As an added bonus, consider bringing along a piece or two that didn’t turn out as you desired. We’ll talk about ways to reincarnate those bloopers into new creations.

Students will produce tiles for future reference when working independently. Your materials will be fired after class and available for pickup. This class is for those whose workspace is getting smaller as the scrap piles are getting larger!

All tools and supplies are provided. Class size is limited to four students for plenty of individual instruction. This is a fast-paced class but we’ll take a short lunch break so plan to bring a bag lunch. Light refreshments will be served. You’ll be working in Valerie’s studio in Santa Rosa. For comfort and safety, please dress in layers and wear closed toe shoes. Questions? Call Valerie at 707-539-4400 or email to Advanced registration is required.
