Nature in Glass One-Day Workshop
Let us celebrate the summer by recreating our natural world in glass. The instructor will provide a large variety of patterns featuring flowers, garden herbs, feathers and birds, as well as a selection of glorious colorful glass. Students will spend their day moving through the techniques of selecting and cutting glass, soldering and adding a special touch to their piece with some decorative soldering methods. Each student will make 1-2 pieces to bring home and leave with the basic knowledge of the stained glass process. Your finished pieces will make a lovely gift or look beautiful in your window all year long. This is a beginner level project, but all levels are welcome! $79 workshop fee does not include materials. A $20 materials kit can be purchased from the instructor at the beginning of the workshop. We will have an hour break for lunch between Noon-1pm. Bring your own lunch or check out one of the local restaurants in the area. About the instructor: Dayna Sabatino learned stained glass in the Bay Area of California when she was hired to work at the Stained Glass Garden. She was drawn not just to the beauty of the glass but to the craftsmanship and skills used in the art. She takes pride in her ability to cut glass into precise shapes and build pictures one piece at a time. Eventually she went freelance selling her one-of-a-kind pieces at craft shows and stores, creating commissions, working in restoration and building windows for the talented Sabina Frank. When she took on hours as studio assistant and store manager at Institute of Mosaic Art in Oakland, CA, Dayna was surrounded and inspired by incredible mosaic artists such as then owner Laurel True of TrueMosaics. Dayna has since moved back to the North East, where she lives with her husband and two young children. They are currently building a home on their land in Vermont and Dayna continues to create one-of-a-kind works of art, take commissions, and teach workshops. Find her on FaceBook.
