Each student will have a private planning meeting one week ahead of the weekend workshop.  At this meeting, you will decide the size and shape of the mirror you want to create.  You'll also start creating your design with Suz's help. 

When you arrive on Saturday morning, you'll be ready to start putting glass pieces together.  Imagine an ocean scene with fish, starfish, coral in fused glass, or an abstract design which will enhance the colors of your home.  Most any idea can be transferred onto the mirror for a frame!  It will be beautiful!!  Before you leave on Saturday, you will prepare the back of the frame by adhering mirror hangers and bumpons to protect your wall.  

On Sunday, you will clean up your fused glass frame pieces and attach them to the mirror with special adhesive.  This will be so much fun!  And, you'll be amazed at the finished creation!  Truly a work of art!!

PRIVATE STUDIO SESSIONS

Sometimes an individual will request some “one on one” time with me in the studio. This is a great way to learn a specific technique, or tackle a larger scale project than can be completed in a workshop. These sessions are customized, have flexible time frames, and usually require a return trip to the studio after a kiln firing. During these times the studio is closed to other activities, and I put my normal body of work aside so that I can concentrate on you, and we can both maximize the experience!

PRIVATE STUDIO SESSION: 3 to 6 hours of customized teaching in a professional glass studio setting.

FEE: $175.00 -  This fee can vary depending on the project,  the time involved, and the number of needed kiln firings. An additional materials fee is usually required.

GIFT CERTIFICATES are available for workshops and private sessions.  A gift certificate will be issued on receipt of payment and can be emailed to the recipient of your choice!
