SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery


April 2017
Greetings,

With two guest artists and a week long kiln forming workshop, we had a very busy March.

Many thanks to Fahan Sky McDonagh for being our featured artist for Open Studio Night. We had a lot of fun incorporating pate de verre concepts in the hot shop. . Sky also taught a week long pate de verre workshop in kiln forming. Images from both the demos and the workshop can be seen HERE.

For Spring Gallery Night, we had the opportunity to feature guest artist Kenneth Gonzales from the Tulsa Glassblowing School. He created some substantial pieces that will go through some serious grinding and polishing before they are finished.
Images from gallery night can be seen HERE.

We are still accepting registrations for our summer Kiln Forming workshop with Nathan Sandberg. The registration deadline is May 12th. Information for the workshop can be found below.


Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Charlyn Reynolds  
and  
Michelle Pennington 

Join us the second Friday of each month from 6p-9p as we host an open studio night at SiNaCa. This is your chance to find out more about the "magic" that goes in to creating glass art. As the artist creates their work we give you an interactive play by play, so you can understand better  why they do what they do. Our on site gallery showcases our featured artist to give you a close up view of what they create. Its also the perfect time to find out how you can get involved in learning how to work with glass.
Glass Classes 
 
SiNaCa Studios offers a variety of ever evolving hot and warm glass programs.  We offer short term classes ranging from 20 minutes to 3 hours in our hot shop (glass blowing studio), kiln forming studio and flame working studio. If you want a more in depth learning opportunity we have 6 week extended programs in the hot shop, and 3 week extended programs in kiln forming that give you a greater understanding of the different ways to manipulate glass. Registration for classes can be done through our profile on Eventbright.com ( HERE)
