Silo Gallery and Glass Studios are delighted to offer to our glass artists a full semester of learning, eight (8) weeks course, with Kim Springer-Smith.  For those of you wishing to further your artistic skills and knowledge in glass artistry, we highly recommend this course.

Kim is a wonderful teacher with the ability to move seamlessly between students no matter their experience, knowledge or level and provide individual support.  We are certain attendees will gain a lot from it!

Kim will be working with students in the following areas so students can expand their skills:

  • Frit+ Powders
  • Glass enamels
  • Planning a piece - especially layering, larger pieces, number of firing, etc.
  • Mounting / Displaying works
  • Gilding - copper, gold, silver leaf
  • Function - Decorative vs. functional (or both)
  • Ideas/sketches - Getting ideas into glass creations

For the very first time, we are happy to offer options to attend!  This will be on a first-come-first-served basis.  You can sign for the full eight weeks, or can choose to attend on the Sunday's Kim is teaching, but attend on an ad-hoc basis to suit your schedule.  Please carefully review the following options to select what suits you best.

  • Attend each Sunday, full eight weeks $800

Course will include all materials*, free use of cold-working/studio facilities between sessions, should any students wish to progress their works between classes.

For those wishing to sign up on class by class basis, we will require prior commitment to dates anticipated to attend.  This will enable us to schedule other attendees for available slots.

If, for any reason, anyone is unable to attend a date they have indicated and we have set on calendar, we will require 48 hours notice of "no show", so we can flex studio availability to others where we can, and provide "credit" if 48 hours notice is provided of non-attendance.

*Additional fees may apply depending on size of finished piece/s, dichro content, metallic foils etc."

March 20th - May 15th (Closed Easter Sunday)(8 sessions $800) (Single session $125 to hold your seat.)
