origami architecture

Origami Architecture with Ken Wilkie –  In the 1980s an architecture professor in Japan combined traditional origami (paper folding) with the making of architectural models from paper.  In this class, students will take his idea, fold and cut out standing 3D models using their names, the name of a favorite team or almost anything else.

Glass Fusing

Glass Fusing with Leanne Purkis – Join us for this fun class where we will learn to use glass to make a design.  Using colored pieces of glass, glass noodles and glass sprinkles we’ll create a unique glass piece.  Glass pieces are then fired in a kiln to melt all of the elements together to create a lasting piece of fused glass art.
