The final step was to put the fittings on their fused-glass.

Fused glass jewelry

The Art Junction hosted our first fused glass workshop this fall.

Jill Groves led this wonderful workshop, instructing the participants on how to create jewelry.

Jill demonstrated the process as she showed the class how to begin.

Students viewed examples of Jill’s work as they decided what type of jewelry they wished to create.

There were many types and colors of glass to choose from.

The creative process began as students cut their glass.

The last step was to put backings on the necklaces and ear rings.

This was a wonderful workshop where everyone was able to put their own personalized touches on their own fused glass jewelry.  I hope you can join us for our next fused glass workshop in March.

Creating candy canes


 

DSCN0254

The Art Junction had two candy cane-making opportunities in December.

DSCN0374

We held a candy cane-making workshop at the North Fairfield United Methodist Church’s community night.

DSCN0372

We also had a family art day at the Art Junction where families could come and create candy canes.

DSCN0377

The candy canes were made out of a polymer clay that goes by the brand name of Sculpey and comes in many colors.

DSCN0381

It is a fun material to use that is easily baked in an oven or a toaster oven.

DSCN0379

This is a great project for kids of all ages.  It’s fun to mix colors, and it incorporates basic clay skills for everyone to learn.

DSCN0380

Everyone had fun as we enjoyed a large attendance at both events.  Maybe you can join us next year for this annual event at the Art Junction.

 

Soap-making workshop


DSCN0125

On Saturday, November 2, 2013 we had our first soap-making workshop led by Sue Wolfe of Kait-Tana Soaps.

DSCN0119

The workshop was sold out, and we did not have an empty seat in the studio.

DSCN0121

Sue demonstrated the various techniques of soap-making to the class.

100_6222

This was a very hands-on workshop.

100_6208

Sue even brought her assistant, Kevin Wolfe, to aide everyone in the soap-making process.

DSCN0117

Everyone was fully engaged in the creative process.

DSCN0122

It was a labor of love as everyone had the opportunity to create two bars of soap and a 4oz bottle of lotion.

The studio still smells wonderful from this fun-filled workshop.

DSCN0124

If you were unable to join us for the soap-making workshop in November, plan to join us in February for the next opportunity for good, clean fun!
