Finally - the April calendar is posted! Sorry about the delay! It was ready and I forgot to have it post automatically.

So many of the birds are returning to Laramie - it's almost like we're actually going to get summer this year... and maybe even more than two days of spring before summer!

April is full of potential for fun and exciting things to create at Martin's Glass House! I hope you get a chance to swing by to play with the glass! We put FUN in FUNctional fused glass art!

This coming Saturday is the Spring Bazaar at Albany County Fairgrounds. Be sure to stop by to say "hi" if you're out there! Last year there was a huge snowstorm the day of the bazaar... it would be nice to have better weather this year. If nothing else, my booth will be decorated for spring (and summer, too!), so come see all the really fun new items I've been creating!

On Wednesday, April 14th at the GOOM (Garden Object of the Month) workshop, we'll be making house number signs - so, if you're planning to participate, be sure to call me far enough in advance if you want me to order wrought iron number display stands for you to display the glass tiles. What a fun ornament to display in your garden and enjoy all summer as you work out in your yard! Remember - when you come to a GOOM workshop, you get to help pick the next month's project! So, if there is something you really really want to make out of glass for your garden, you need to come to make the next pick!

(I'd love to post photos of everything that people have been making, but I can't keep up!)

On Wednesday, April 21st we're going to get to play with recycled glass! I think the most exciting part about this workshop is that you never know what we'll be creating until everyone shows up! So, be saving your recycled bottles and other glassware that you might want to turn into something new and bring it with you on the 21st! What a great way to celebrate Earth Day 2010!

Please remember that you must call at least one day in advance to reserve a spot for most workshops and Fusers at Work times (previously called "open studio") at Martin's Glass House. Your pre-payment is required to confirm your reservation. Any exceptions will be noted in the workshop descriptions.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
