This product is sold out
In this class you will learn how to create realistic trees with depth! Local artist, Ann Cavanaugh is known the world over for this technique and now she is going to teach it to YOU!
Each student will create a platter measuring approximately 5" x 12". Using sheet glass, frit, stringers and paint, Ann will walk you through the process step-by-step. The Melt staff will then fire and slump your piece into a tray that will be available for pick up in 1 - 2 weeks! All materials and firing schedules will be provided for you.
This class is open to adults and children ages 18 and up. All attendees must be registered, as we have limited classroom space. Any questions or concerns, please contact us.

**Photo is an example of item that will be made in this class. The variety and colors of glass available may vary depending on what you choose for your class.
I grew up roaming and “making” in the outdoors of Oregon. Spending as much time outdoors and having been exposed to formal art instruction at an early age has culminated in my being a “maker” of glass that reflects the textures and colors of nature.
I am drawn to the depth and complexity that are possible by layering glass into translucent images of amazing power. Every piece represents continuous learning and renewed excitement. I continue to learn about glass as a medium and I am always pushing myself to translate what I see and imagine into glass forms.
I believe in the power and responsibility of teaching. I have benefited from being taught by amazing glass masters and in turn I am committed to teach others my glass techniques and discoveries.
