Sea Glass Wire Wrapping a Hit!

Here (at left) is a photo from our most recent Sea Glass Wirewrapping workshop taught here by Catherine Wicks. And, shown in the preceding post below, are others photos from 2 more workshops we had here at the gallery this month. We hope folks will take a short drive in the country and enjoy a quiet, peacefull art-filled afternoon as we make our transition to KLINGER STUDIOS. Stay tuned (or better yet - sign up to follow us). Enjoy!

Classes Galore!

I admit I've been amiss in posting to this blog - I've been busy with sales, workshops - and life! On that note - here are some pictures (2 from the 12/1/12 workshop and 3 from the last one, on 12/2/12. Students learned how to make a sea glass and crystal necklace and bracelet set. A good time was reportedly had by all! Note: There's a nice little story here too: the last workshop we did, on 12/2/12, was a secret birthday gift from a local man (Nick Gaskins) to his wife Cris - owners of Bing Design in Yellow Springs. He (Nick) rounded up 4 of Cris' friends (all sworn to secrecy) and they just showed up here and gave her the surprise. Giving the gift of art - and what a nice gift it is! Stay tuned for more classes - and more big gallery news - in the days ahead. Enjoy!
