The Mirror and Frame Workshop is scheduled for:

Saturday, January 31, 1 PM - 4 PM

Be sure to invite your friends! You'll all have a great time! It isn't fair for me to be the only one having all this fun!

This "Four Pots" project (above) is not part of the workshop, but I thought you might like to see something else that can be created using the same techniques that you can learn at the Mirror and Frame Workshop.

The photos below, however, ARE a sampling of the possibilities you CAN create if you attend the Mirror and Frame Workshop! It was a LOT of fun to create these samples for you to see. I think you will really enjoy the results of your endeavors when you create your own with your own designs!

The square mirror frames below are 6" x 6". You will be able to make one of each - a mirror, and a photo frame - at the workshop.

The black frame is made with strips of glass adorned with corner flower arrangements made from dots, squiggles (vitrigraph) and frit (ground glass), and it has an easel type back. Isn't it just simply delicate and romantic? What a sweet gift to give, or to keep for yourself. :-)

The pink and white mirror frame (6" x 6") below is made from 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" squares, each topped with a daisy-type flower made by cutting strips of glass with a wheel cutter, then placing dots in the centers. Then the squares were sprinkled with coarse and fine frit. Green vitrigraph was used to represent flower stems. High temperature wire loops were inserted in the frame before firing it in the kiln; then ribbon was strung through the loops after firing to create a frame hanger, with a bow in the corner.

The heart-shaped photo frame below is designed on a 6" glass heart, and will accommodate a wallet size photo in the clear glass "pocket." Be sure to bring a photo with you that you want to put into your frame so that we can create it to fit! What a GREAT Valentine's Day gift! The photo I used was from our wedding. It sure makes me smile. :-) Think of the smiles you will bring to whoever receives this kind of gift from you!

I'm looking forward to seeing you here on the 31st! Remember - these are just some of the projects for January! Keep checking the blog (I'll also send out announcements) to see more projects that you can create this month!
