I like to wander around the country via the internets checking on my favorite glass studios I’ve never been to. So today I’m in Batavia, NY visiting the OATKA Glass School web site. I instantly began drooling over some of the upcoming classes they have scheduled. How does a Pate de Verre class sound? Or maybe Imagery in Glass. And then there’s Roger Thomas’ class Thinking Painting, Using Fusing. Particular about Particulates is the most fascinating to me. It’s a six day class that uses murrine that you make and frit to do kiln casting. Be still my heart. Check out their site. It might be time for a road trip!

    Thanks for the great comments about our classes. We do our best to bring our students the best. Our classes run all year round….since we don’t get the huge amount of snow that Buffalo and Syracuse, NY get….getting here easy. We also have a house that we have our out-of-town students and instructors stay at for very reasonable rates, with breakfast included. Everyone wants to stay at the house when they return….a beautiful spot in the world. Hope to see some of you visiting us one day.
