Join us Friday nights in April for four individual TRY IT classes. We will be creating Spring themed pieces including a framed Cherry Blossom tile, geometric square bowl, birds in a nest window hanger, and a fun white on black vintage piece.
You can sign up for one Friday night class or all the classes. Whatever works best for your schedule. These classes are a wonderful opportunity to try out Fused Glass making. Fused Glass classes are appropriate for artists ages 8 and up! Don't worry about working with glass, we have safety goggles and specially made gloves to protect our students.
What is Fused Glass?
Fused Glass is similar to Stained Glass in that you will be creating finished pieces out of pieces of glass. That is where the similarity ends. With Fused Glass, glass pieces are created by layering glass and then fusing the layers into one solid piece in a kiln. Once the piece is fused into a solid form it can then be slumped into a mold or shape.
It is a wonderfully creative and relaxing art form and no glass experience is necessary.
We hope you will join us Friday nights in April.
Contact the Studio with any questions, or if you would like to create a Fused Glass party or event (540) 364-2834.
So WHAT is ALL this construction about anyway????
We get asked that all the time, and it is a good thing for sure.
Big Dog Pots opened its doors in March of 2014. Since then the art making center has been well received in the community and has become a destination for travelers from the greater Northern Virginia region and beyond.
In response to demand, we are adding 3,000 square feet to the Studio. In addition to Walk-in Pottery Painting we will be adding Fused Glass to our roster of Walk-In art making choices.
When the construction is complete we will have SEATING for 50. Think parties, events, bridal showers, off-site team building, and more. Our Pottery Painting will be greatly expanded, and we will be adding many new EVENTS for children, adults and families.
We are thrilled with our construction to date and in the coming weeks you will see a NEW ROOF going on and our doors and windows being installed.
Stay tuned for more news on our new offerings (some are still top secret), and on the progress of the construction.
