new glass murinni from today.

It's been a week of decisions. Jill and I sat down with our good buddy and fantastic furniture maker Stephen Lindsay to decide on the design for some more display box showcases for our new shop. But before we could do that we had to kind of finalize the layout for the space... which was hard but now that it's done, feels really good. I think we're going to be really pleased with the new space. We also have some good ideas for other additions to the shop. I'll post pictures of the new space when we move. It's coming up soon.

Yay.... progress!

New Scholarships

Hey, were back from another successful Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee, and raring to go on all sorts of new plans and ideas.

First up...

We are happy to say that we will be offering one full, or two half scholarships on our guest & international teacher workshops.
We hear through the grape vine that sometimes these classes can be pricey for newer flameworkers or students. In general we'd just like to try to help out those who may not otherwise be able to take advantage of such an awesome learning experience with visiting artists.

So for our next class with Heather Trimlett on Sept 13th & 14th 2008 we will be offering one full scholarship.

The details of her class are:

Vessels and Hollow Formed Beads
$400 + $50 tool kit ($85 value)
10am - 6pm both days

What you need to submit to apply for the scholarship:
- Why you want to take this particular class
- What your glass bead making history or experience is
- Link to your website or 5 pictures of work (no bigger than 300kb each)
- Why you?

We need the info by July 20th and will announce the recipient on Aug 1st.

Good luck... and remember if it doesn't work out this time, try again:)
