The Glass Studio's New Location

I can't even remember the last time I wrote in this blog...yikes! There's no excuse. Now that I have my new location open I plan on writing here on a very regular basis. I'm adding classes to my schedule and need to get this info out!

So where do I start? As some of you may know, I needed to move to a new location. The rent increase was a bit too much to bear so I had to move. I am so fortunate to have found a fantastic space further down York Blvd. keeping me in Highland Park. Yay!! And the space is so much better! I have room to grow which is awesome. I also have a big back parking lot where we're establishing glass blowing. Yes, glass blowing. It was too darn hot to do it indoors at my last location, so to have a back outdoor area we can devote to glass blowing is incredible. Schedule a class...come on, you know you want to blow glass!

And about the new classes. There's more jewelry making in the house. Simple soldering and fabrication...more wire work...macramé...rings and things...findings and other goodies. Classes will be added all of the time. Are there enough hours in the day? I think not! But we will fill them with fun crafts and art and good good times!

Do you all know about my newspaper? That's another thing that has been added to my life since I've last written here. NELAart News. It's about art and culture in Northeast Los Angeles. We're a year and a half into it and I love it! I get to talk about art and go to openings and list classes from all over the area, as well as do things to help improve the quality of peoples lives. Such a good thing!

What else...I taped a segment for the other day. Wire flowers for a pendant and earrings. Such a good time! Once it's live online I'll post a link. This could be a regular thing too...I'll keep you posted on that too. So much fun!

I've re-opened my easy shop and will be loading it with cute beads and some jewelry, maybe some glass items too. My easy store is beadbrains. Go take a look. And let me know if there's anything special you need in glass or is always good and expect to see regular posts. No really...
