FEES & DESCRIPTIONS:
Open Studio: $10 studio fee (includes kiln firing, use of tools and equipment, and all instruction and guidance) + cost of all materials. No experience required to attend an open studio. You may make any project you like. If you do not already know how to cut glass, please take advantage of this time to learn glass cutting skills.
Cabachon Workshop: $25 fee. Cabachons: fused glass "blobs" (like those used for pendants) that can be dressed up by wire wrapping, using gold and silver wire to make plain and fancy wire baskets. In the Cabachon Workshop, you may make up to three cabachons of different sizes and shapes (up to 1-1/4 " square or round each, including dichroic glass) to be used for the wire wrapping workshop - all for this one low fee!
Wire Wrapping Workshop: $25 fee, PRE-PAYMENT REQUIRED. Local Laramie artist, Dillon Ruland, will be providing instruction on wire wrapping your fused glass cabachons. Select 2-3 of your own cabachons (these can be made at the Cabachon Workshop on July 12) or purchase pre-made cabachons at the workshop. All wire, tools and instruction are included for this one low fee!
Phil's Wire Wrapped Cabachon
Learn to create a wire "basket" to hold your fused glass cabachon, then attach it to a neck cord to wear it as jewelry, or use ribbon to turn it into an ornament.
Once you have learned the basic wire wrapping basket design, you can create limitless designs to make each of your cabachons unique!
Phil made this basic wire wrapped pendant on his first try!
