Another adventure in creativity recently. Jill and I headed down to Granville Island to the New-Small Studio to learn how to design with glass. Well, technically alot of the design process was prepped for us… and the only choice left to us was the colour scheme as it was in the plan to create a lovely solid glass flower. We were thrilled to participate.
You then have to switch to the tongs and really start to create the petals as Dave rotates the bar. You have to move quickly of course because it’s GLASS, so starts it harden really quickly. Also you have to stick your tongs in water regularly because they get really hot and stick to the glass.
This one is Jill’s stunning orange and red blob that turned into a green and yellow flower…(that sadly, got mixed up with someone else’s so we haven’t actually seen her final one. I am working with the studio to correct this but haven’t heard anything back yet).
It was a quick workshop but as with all of the new things we try or adventure we partake on, we had a lot of fun.
Loved our lil chit chat beforehand too and not just cuz Jilly bought me an INCREDIBLE chocolate chip cookie at a bakery!! MMMmmmm pretty perfect night all round!
Thanks for checking in,
