Creative Glass Students Learn New Techniques

The Creative Glass Class went to Stained Glass Express in Waterville, Maine on Tuesday, Dec. 10.  The attending students were able to explore a wide variety of glass styles and techniques.  The featured artist of the month was Jan Royall, a renowned glass artist, from our area.  Students had a descriptive scavenger hunt throughout the store and studio spaces, looking for their favorite pieces in stained glass, blown glass, fused work, or lampwork.  They were shown a new technique, etching glass.  Each student was able to make 2 etched beveled ornaments at no cost.  Snacks and drinks were provided, as well as a discount given on anything they might want to purchase.  Stained Glass Express was very generous and welcoming to our group.  This was appreciated by all of us. ~ Submitted by Alice Yates
