The Glass Palette - Saturday morning

April 08, 2013 1 min read

I was especially happy to be able to attend the workshop at The Glass Palette.  It's an amazing place - part gallery, part workshop, and totally inspirational.  Marie, owner, welcomed us warmly and assured us that we all that the skills to make something beautiful even though most of us were complete and utter beginners.

We started by deciding what kind of thing we'd like to make - plate, bowl, wall hanging, jewelry - there's no wrong answer.  Then we got to the fun part - choosing colors and playing with shapes

Betsy got busy with a palette of blues

Sigrid cleverly decided to make a set of buttons to match her orange Symphony Jacket

Everyone was totally engrossed in the process!

I can't wait to see how everyone's creations turn out.  Marie will fire everyone's  masterpiece and mail them the the appropriate artist in a week or so.

It was so much fun that I decided to make two different pendants.  I was going to make one for each of my daughters, but I thought they might rather come and make one themselves!  Here are my pendants pre-firing.  

I'll post a photo when the finished items arrive.  This was a really wonderful experience, and I will totally be back.  My mind is already buzzing with my next projects!
