Join Your Creation Station on Saturday evening April 23, 2016 for an evening of canvas painting supporting the Bear-Glasgow YMCA’s Annual Campaign and its Open Door Program. Through the Annual Campaign, the Bear-Glasgow Y is able to offer programs that nurture life lessons in kids, foster health and well-being among people of all ages in our community.
For this event, we will be painting the Whimsical Tree canvas, one of our most popular designs. This design is a great way to learn about blending colors for stunning backgrounds and offers many opportunities for individual expression and additions. Our instructor artists will be on hand to guide you through each step of the painting from layout to finishing touches.
Expect to spend an unhurried 2 to 3 hours completing the painting. Come dressed to paint, we will be using acrylic paints and they don’t come out of clothes as easily as our ceramic underglazes.

If you’ve ever wanted to try a fused glass project at Your Creation Station but felt a little overwhelmed sitting down to a blank piece of clear glass, these workshops are for you. We are offering two workshops this January where we guide you step by step through the process of making a fused glass project starting with just a blank piece of glass. Both projects are suitable for first time and experienced glass fusers.
A finished Fused Glass Wind Chime
For our Fused Glass Wind Chime project we will use a single 6″ by 6″ piece of clear glass and demonstrate how to layout, cut and assemble a wind chime by combining the materials available at our fusing station. The assembled parts will be fused in our kiln and ready for final assembly when you pick it up. All the glass and hanging hardware are included with the workshop, no need to scramble around trying to figure out how or where to get the stuff you’ll need to display your finished masterpiece.
This Fused Glass Mirror frame uses both colored strips of glass and frit.
Our Fused Glass Mirror project provides an excellent opportunity for anyone to make a fused glass project that is sure to dazzle and impress. We’ll start out with a 3″ by 8″ piece of clear glass and guide you through dividing it into the pieces necessary for building your mirror’s frame. Once the base is complete you’ll complete the design using the glass stringers, noodles, pebbles, bits and frits stocked in our studio. After fusing, we’ll attach the mirror backing and you’ll have an impressive piece suitable for hanging in your home or school locker.
How to Attend
Like most things in life, the most important part is showing up and the same holds true here. However, we ask that you register for one (or both) of these workshops so we can be sure to have plenty of materials for everyone to work with. Registration is easy and can be done online through our secure website or by calling the studio during business hours. The cost of each workshop is $35, includes all required materials, firings and instruction to complete the project. Finished projects will be ready the Wednesday following the workshop.
