Adult Holiday Giftmaking Get Togethers

There is nothing quite like playing with colorful sparkly dichroic glass to get one's creative juices flowing! Use your imagination and a delightful assortment of glass to make window ornaments or custom jewelry such as pendants, earrings, brooches, keychains, or whatever your heart desires!. Gather your friends, family, neighbors, running/book club/team, fellow parents, etc and spend an evening making giftable and usable one-of-a-kind items and having some art play fun. This is also a terrific experience for teens. Ages 12 and up. Four to six participants per class.

Thursday classes are 6-8:30 pm and Sunday classes are 5-7:30 pm.

Glass will fire overnight in the kiln and be ready for pickup within a week.

About Marcia Wiley

My mission is to transform the mundane and bring more play and beauty into the world. I believe that everyday objects--the things we wear, use, and surround ourselves with--can and should bring color and delight into our lives. ESPECIALLY for those of us who live in the occasionally grayer-than-gray northwest! My fused-glass workshops are an opportunity to make a variety of brilliant objects for you and your home.

I make and do many things: I am a glass artist, creativity guide, mother, and crafter. Oh--and I also lead fused-glass classes/camps for kids. I love to create experiences for women that "nurture the nurturers" and delight in seeing the creative uplifting of people who don't typically think of themselves as creative.
