Our Studios Are Smoking Hot With Creativity

Guest Artist Anne Havel taught students various methods of line creation and imagery within  enamel pieces using techniques such as sgraffito, graphite, acid-etching, painting, and more by using a torch.

The Guild's own Glass Instructor Diana Morrison taught workshop participants on the art of raking glass. Also known as combing the glass, raking is the process of pulling a tool through molten glass to create wonderful motion and swirling in the glass. One of a kind glass pieces were made in this two-day workshop.
