    Days may be shortening, but there's always time to prepare your garden for the growing season - or create the perfect gift for your gardening friends. Fused Glass Garden Tiles is a super easy, skill building class where you will practice straight glass cutting for 4 small tiles. We will cover basic glass construction, and management of volume. Working with Opaque colors and pre-cuts makes this an easy project.

    You will cut and assemble your 4 tiles on October 21st, which will then be full fused. When you return on October 28th, we will decorate the tiles with pre-cut shapes and then the tiles will be tack fused. You can return to pick up finished work on a date & time to be determined with your instructor.

Make a hat or a cute pouch by wrapping colored roving (un-spun wool) around your ball, covering it all in pantyhose, and spritzing it with hot, sudsy water. Bounce the ball for a few minutes, and then—it’s almost like magic!—deflate the ball to discover what you’ve made. At home you can add details with embroidery or needle felting, or just enjoy it as-is. 

    This is a fun and easy way to give wet-felting a try!

    Instructor Bios:

    Frank Wurden - While getting his BS Electrical Engineering degree at University of Washington, Frank also obtained a BFA degree with emphasis in life drawing, sculpting and foundry art working with green sand, CO2 sand casting, investment casting, and ceramic shell casting. Sculpture materials were clay, foam, wood, or wax for the patterns, and casting in aluminum, bronze and stainless steel. Frank says it’s been many years since actually casting, so it’s great fun to get back into it! “I totally enjoy the entire process and look forward to helping other people do the same.”

    Jeff Oens is a widely renowned sculptor with his bronze artwork exhibited in prominent art collections and public displays across the United States and Canada. Jeff is best known for his outstanding wildlife sculptures, but his portfolio also includes human figures, mythical creatures, and other diverse subjects, ranging in size from miniature to monumental. Many of Jeff’s sculptures can be seen around the industrial park on Three Tree Lane.

    Mario Oblak - Mario honed his passion for casting metal with BFA (UofW) and MFA (Rhode Island School of Design) degrees in Sculpture. Creating, designing and building in different materials and mediums is a joy, but working in liquid metal is “it” for him. Mario feels “Casting is a magical process that requires patience, skill, labor and teamwork, with the results both satisfying and permanent.” By sharing his knowledge and experience, Mario wants to help others explore, learn, and develop skills so they can see their ideas come to life.
