Greensborough Trading Company in Greensboro, Md. is offering in April and May a set of classes in Glass Fusing.
Due to popular requests Lynn Haneke, the Stained Glass Instructor, at Greensborough Trading Company has developed a beginning level short course in Glass Fusing basics.
The first class will be held April 17th at 10:00. The students will be creating two 4” coasters using multiple layers of glass and decorations with a wide array of colors. Lynn will be bringing into the store her own kiln, various colors of glass, and stringers, noodles and frit to decorate the coasters. Students will be able to pick up their finished projects in two weeks or less. This class will be full of hands-on instruction with examples of finished projects for inspiration. You need no prior experience in stained glass. The cost of the class is $35.00 with all materials and kiln firing provided. Class size is limited to 6 students and if more than 6 students sign up a second entry level class can be held that same day starting at 2:00.
The second class will build on the skills gained in the first one. It will be held May 15th at 10:00. We will be creating a birdhouse with wind chimes of glass hanging from it. The birdhouse is decorated with many chips of glass portraying a flower garden. The chips range in size from pencil eraser to dust. An artistic ability is helpful but not necessary. The cost of the class is $50.00 with all materials and firing provided. Class size is again limited to 6 students with a second class possible. Students must take the first class in order to participate in the second.
Students must pre-register/ pre-pay with Barbara Mutolo at Greensborough Trading Company, 410-482-2200.
Greensboro, MD, March 13, 2010 – John Miller and John Ford from the Academy of Lifelong Learning will team up with The Eastern Shore Writers’ Association to present a unique perspective on this at times vexing literary genre on March 13th from 1–3 p.m., at the Riverside Country Inn in historic Greensboro, MD.
Held in the heart of the Eastern Shore, and overlooking the Choptank River, “we will gather midst green tea, coffee, and shamrock cookies,” Anne McCormick, Co-coordinator of the ESWA describes invitingly. “It is sure to be just the right tonic after this winter.”
Free and open to the public, this event will include a fun reading of some irreverent poems from over the years, with lively discussion encouraged. A tour of the Inn will follow the meeting, with refreshments provided just a short distance away at the Greensborough Trading Company.
“Reservations are recommended and dust off your funny bones! It is sure to be a hoot!” Anne concludes.
