Greetings All,

We hope that you had a great summer! After our annual studio updates and improvements we are gearing up for our busiest time of the year. Things start off this weekend, September 9th and 10th, with Artists in Heat (fall membership drive) and Fall Gallery Night. We are excited to host guest artist David Schnuckel for these events. See below for information about David's lecture and demonstrations. We will be participating in The Beads of Courage bead challenge on the 17th, followed in October with the ArtsGoggle on the 8th and the second annual Pride of Southside Home Brew Invitational on the 29th.

We currently have a promotion on Goupon.com for our experience kiln forming workshop. Its the perfect chance to work in our kiln forming studio and learn about a different approach to being creative with glass. View the deal HERE.

Don't forget that we have added a new kiln forming class geared specifically to kids called Connect2Glass. Participants choose one of the offered kiln forming items during registration. The one hour workshops are held once a month. Up to four kids can be registered for the same time. Click HERE for information and registration.



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