As many of you know we were at the Toronto Bead Society Fall Fair this past weekend. The show as a great success. The new location was fantastic and if you did not make it out, you should definitely come out to the Spring Show in May.
We have some new classes coming up this month. We are pleased to introduce a new instructor--Keith Wong! Keith will be teaching lampworking classes in borosilicate glass. This is different from our current lampworking classes which use soft glass; borosilicate is hard glass. Keith will be offering a series of 4 classes. Three of the 4 are up on the site now and the 4th one should be up later this week.
Wednesday November 11th from 6 to 9pm is Keith's first class, Holiday Decorating: Clear and Frosted Icicles An Introduction to Borosilicate Glass. This is a beginner class, no experience necessary.
Wednesday November 25th from 6 to 9pm is Swizzle Sticks and Olive Picks: An Introduction to Borosilicate Glass. This is also a beginner class.
Sunday November 29th from 12-4pm is Blown Ornaments: Intermediate Level Borosilicate Glass. Students should have experience in either hard or soft glass. Students taking Keith's other classes will have enough experience to take this class. Students who register for all 4 classes will receive the discounted price of $480.00.
