Stained Glass Classes Open for Booking

I’ve been getting quite a few emails lately from people wondering when stained glass classes will next be offered. I’m happy to announce that classes are now open to be booked for December 2014 – January 2015.

Classes are only open on select days, so check out the updated available dates and times on the classes page of this website. If you aren’t able to grab a time slot, don’t worry – gift certificates are also now available for future stained glass classes in 2015.

I look forward to creating some beautiful sparkling stained glass with you this holiday season!

Heart of Glass

It’s a well known fact that couples that engage in new activities together improve the quality of their relationship. But did you know that socializing is also good for your physical heart? Learning a new hobby with a friend causes side effects of laughter and that warm-fuzzy bonding feeling that have all kinds of positive feedback on your actual beating heart. I love teaching my friends and family how to create glass pieces, and cherish shared moments in the GeekyGlass studio just as much as focused creative alone-time.

With that in mind, GeekyGlass is offering a couples special deal this month. Beginner’s workshops for 2 people are $100 off until February 14th, 2013. That’s right – save $100 on the cost of the workshop when you book with a friend, spouse, partner, or the love of your life. Classes booked can be taken anytime after Feb 14th – but the deal disappears after that date!

To book a class, head over to the classes page for more info.

Happy February!

 

The Solar System in your Stocking

Brand new at GeekyGlass:  The Solar System! (Things are expanding around here!)

These lead-free silver solder pendants are the perfect size to wear as a pendant (just over 1 inch, or 3-4 cm). Or, thread them with gold and silver and hang them on your tree. At only $10 each, they are an affordable and beautiful stocking stuffer for the space enthusiast. Each piece is made with unique and stunning art glass in a variety of textures and colours, selected to represent the qualities of each planet, sun and moon.

There are 10 to choose from:

SUN (brilliant sparkling amber/red/gold, satin seedy, translucent glass)

MOON (wispy white/dove grey, smooth, opalescent glass)

MERCURY (transformational streaky champagne-grey/white, semi-translucent, smooth glass)

VENUS (honey/white streaky, mixed opalescent, semi-translucent, one side lightly hammered glass)

EARTH (richly saturated streaky cobalt blue/white, mixed opalescent, smooth glass)
