Off Site Classes

In an effort to support the Persimmon Art Gallery members while keeping the public informed of great goings-on, we are adding this section to our website to share information about off-site classes (not held at the Persimmon Art Gallery) being taught by Persimmon artists.  


Sept 14, 2021: Fused Glass Wave
Students will learn the basics about glass compatibility, glass tools and safety, firing, as well as layering and design techniques. We will each create a fused glass wave that will be approximately 9” x 4”. The piece will be fired twice which will result in the piece being able to stand in a window or with a tea light. The pieces will be available for pick up within one week. All tools, supplies and instruction will be included. Light snacks and water are also provided. Classes are small to ensure that all members receive ample instruction and assistance. Classes are taught at my studio – 4990 Fruitvale Rd, Newcastle.

August 10 or 14, 2021: Fused Glass Flowers For Your Wall
Flowers abound this time of year and provide great inspiration for this piece of art. You will create a piece of art that focuses on a vase and flowers. The flowers might be poppies, sunflowers, lilies or totally imaginary. It will be fused and then mounted into a frame for hanging. Any skill level is successful and you have a delightful time learning about glass.  All materials and tools are included.  Light snacks and water will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch.

All tools, supplies and instruction will be included.  Light snacks and water are also provided.
