Newsletter Spring 2024

Hello everyone!

Hoping all of you had a delightful holiday (and food!) and of course, Wishing you a Fantastic, Healthy and Prosperous New Year too!

JUST A REMINDER: I am closed  for the month of January! Tried the “by appointment only” but ended up with too much to do! Haha!

 To my new subscribers and future students – Welcome! To all of you, I sooo look forward to seeing you again! Pepper and Ezzy too!

Here is the schedule (click)for upcoming workshops and courses. I hope that these dates work for you for the ones you are interested in. Cinnamon coffee, music and laughter ate included!

Bevel Box Workshop(click)

Please note there is work to do before class!!!

I have changed this course to a  weekend workshop as there is too much to do in a single day class – we all got pooped out!

 Design with Bevels Workshop(click)

This is a workshop that gets forgotten! Learn how to use bevel clusters or custom create with stock bevels and make your master design! You will supply your own bevel cluster! Check out Glass Expressions or If you want, come in as soon as and I will order one for you!

Soldering Workshop(click)

Heads up! Prep work needed!

Perfect your soldering and learn some tricks!

 Private Workshop/Class

Private classes are available for help in designing, colour/glass selection, soldering and other techniques. This can be cost effective and very productive as I am totally focused on you and your project. I keep you on track, as my fee is $90 per hour.

Just a Reminder

No room to work at home? Want some company? You can come and work in the studio if you would like, Wed. to Sat. from noon to 6:00, no need to call first, you just might have to wait a sec until I clean a spot for you! I work until at least 9:00 pm on those days, so evenings can work too if this better for you. Just let me know. $5/hr includes grinder time. FREE for current students.  No instruction or teaching – not fair to the other students! Tools available as well if needed. Please call for more info.


The Fall classes were extremely successful! What a wonderful group of students! Such a joy to teach and their projects were so well done and incredibly beautiful. The Advanced Class was a blast!  My brain was exhausted after the 8 weeks – LOL! So much fun and energy!

Just a laugh for you, before I go!  I found this joke by Beverly Gross!

An exercise for people who are out of shape:                                                Begin with a 5-pound potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold for 1 minute and then relax. After a few weeks, move up to10-pound bags. Then try 50-pound bags, and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-pound bag in each hand and hold your arms out straight for a full minute. Once you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

Thank you so much for your time, support, and interest for this newsletter!! Still not totally into this emailing stuff – I miss the chats on the phone, so feel free to call or drop in.

Looking forward to hearing from you, stay happy, Cheers, Jan
