The heart has been thought of as fragile, powerful, forgiving, loving…in other words, as unique as the bearer. Enjoy this one day project oriented workshop where you’ll express whatever emotions you choose in creating original heart shaped sun-catchers to hang individually, or create a whimsical vertical streamer or horizontal banner. Make one elaborate, over-the-top design to treasure, or several whimsical pieces to spread the love (or other message!). Utilizing transparent, opal, and sparkling dichroic glass, as well as a variety of accessory glass, you’re only limited by your imagination.
While glass cutting experience is helpful, there will be an overview of cutting and grinding techniques and practice time before beginning your projects. I’ll also have a selection of pre-cut components to mix and match. This is a fun class whether you’re already working with glass or simply want to enjoy an afternoon of creative play. Your hearts will be fired and ready for pick up before Valentine’s Day.
All tools and supplies are provided. Class size is limited to four students for plenty of individual instruction. 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 Valerie@ValerieAdamsGlass.com Advanced registration is required.

Prepare to be inspired by an enthusiastic, generous, and talented instructor!
