July classes and Trumpet Vine Panel

Miami is heating up what better time to come in to the cool studio space here and take a class.  Beginning Stained Glass classes start on Wednesday morning the 11th.  We meet from 10 to 12am for 5 weeks, with an added extra week for free if you need it.  That takes us through August 15th.  There is also going to be one of the Sunday classes in July - for making fused glass pendants with dichroic (very iridescent and colorful) glass.  The dates are the 15th and 22nd.  We meet from 12 to 3 pm both days.  It's a lot of fun, and always an adventure.  We start with pieces of scrap, and discover something wonderful when the kiln is opened and we see how everything has fused together.  There's no need to buy tools or supplies, as they're included in the $150 tuition.
As usual, we'll be teaching the lampwork beads class too - on either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings.  The two classes are held from 6 to 9pm.  Since there aren't any other evening classes scheduled for July, the choice of days is flexible.  Since it's a class I love to teach, I don't mind teaching it often!  Summer is also a good time for private lessons.  If you have some experience and want to try your hand at something new, just let me know.
I finally have a picture of one of the latest panels to show you.  The color is a little washed out, but I hope you enjoy it anyway:

It's about 22"wide by 45" high and is going into the front entryway of a home in Coral Gables.
