Our Holiday Class Schedule is posted!

We offer three different workshops every Saturday in November and December. Choose from Fused Glass Snowflakes, Ornaments, or Holiday Plates -- or take all three! Private group options are available, but dates are filling quickly!

There will be a special Sunday Ornament workshop to benefit the Seymour Historical Society on Sunday November 18th 1-3pm.

This weekend we welcome in our next guest Artist for our First Saturday Artist Spotlight event. Sarah Schneiderman will be showing her pieces "All Fish, All the Time." Here is a little bit about Sarah:

All Fish, All the Time is a result of my love for scuba diving and my deep concern about the environment, especially how much trash we generate.

Join us for our First Satudays Artist Spotlight at The Gallery @ The Glass Source. Ali McFadzen takes beautiful photos of mushrooms and fungi. The opening reception is May 5th from 5:00-8:00pm.

Here is a little bit about her work:

Joins us for a weekend of Taxidermy!

Divya Anantharaman is joining us for a weekend of Taxidermy here @ the Studio. We are very excited to have her for two very special workshops. There are only a few spots left in the mouse workshop, and plenty of space available in the butterfly workshop. Sign up today!

Anthropomorphic Mouse (1 or 2-headed) Taxidermy

In this class, students will learn all the skills required to make--and leave class with--their very own piece of one- or two-headed anthropomorphic taxidermy.

We are getting excited for our First Saturdays Artist Spotlight tomorrow night from 5-9pm featuring the art of Dora Sambuco.

In December 2014, Michael and Denise wanted to start a “Pendant Project” for charity and began brainstorming ideas on how they could make it all happen. Denise’s first thought was to support women in treatment as she is an 18-year-survivor of cancer.  She has walked the walk and knows first-hand how difficult the journey can be.  A simple kindness can make all the difference on a “tough” day.

Denise’s story:

Reintegrate at the International Festival of Arts and Ideas.

Our Reintegrate teams shared their projects at the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in June 2013. New York Times science writer Carl Zimmer moderated the session held at the Yale Center for British Art Museum. Our team was the first to discuss our project in the video.

 

A video sponsored by Reintegrate about our project!! 
The science of medicine mixes with the art of glass-making and sculpture for this project that aims to teach the public about the human body and to have them question the fragility of it, their faith in it, and the implications of disease with an interactive art installation. Their project has been a part of the Reintegrate initiative of The Arts Council of Greater New Haven, made possible by a Creative Placemaking grant from the Department of Economic and Community Development, Connecticut Office of the Arts. 

Thanks to the generosity of Yale’s School of Art and some crazy luck in timing, we were able to book Green Gallery for our Looking In exhibit! The timing couldn’t be more perfect, because the exhibition is happening at the same time as New Haven’s International Festival of Arts & Ideas, which *by the way* Michael and I are giving an ideas talk at!
