New Art Studio, Update
Here is the next set of pics of the new Art Studio:
Exterior wall and window are in on the right side unit, or the south side. So studio is completely closed up now.
Photo of the window and wall from the inside looking out. Forgive the yard and the construction zone.
Started painting the floor on the left side or north side. I am really happy with the way the floor is coming out. The north half of the studio is almost done!!
Started painting the ceiling and walls of in the south side of the studio with the primer.
I really make a mess when I paint….lol. Been scraping paint off my hands, face and glasses for days. Ceilings really splatter when you paint them.
The electrician was working today on the lights, ceiling fans and outlets, this is the north side. Yeah!! Getting so excited!! I should have electricity connected soon!!!
And lights and fan on the south side. I just put a final coat of paint up where the lights and fan were going and will come back and finish the rest when all the primer is done.
I have been cleaning up the old studio up stairs, sorting stuff and getting preparing to move the work table and glass storage cabinet out to the new studio. Started taking small stuff out every trip outside, and putting it in the purple cabinets, such as beads and glass rods for bead making. I am moving out my glass band saw, glass grinder and two small table top 110 kilns. I have to clean off the work table and empty out the glass storage cabinet so I can move them out. Tons of work painting, and painting, and painting, and moving stuff, but will be so worth it when I get it done!!! The old studio upstairs inside the house will be turned into my fiber arts studio for sewing, yarn, spinning and weaving. All the glass work, fusing, bead making, torches, jewelry design will all be done outside in the new studio. I will also have room to teach classes again!!! Yeah!!!

Classes I teach: Lampwork Bead Making
LAMPWORK BEAD MAKING:
This class I teach you how to make your own handmade lampwork or flamework glass beads. Glass rods are melted under an open torch and formed into glass beads. You will learn about expansion of glass, about compatible glasses, how to anneal your beads, and much more. $100.00 includes all supplies and use of all tools (you take home your finished beads). This is a one secession class, 5 hours long. The class is limited to two students.
Classes are available by appointment only:
Due to limited space available for teaching, my Classes are limited to 1, 2 or 3 students per class depending on the class. This makes my classes very individualized providing you the one-on-one instruction that you will not receive in a larger class setting. This also allows me to be flexible in my teaching schedule.
Classes are generally weekday evenings, or Saturday during the day or evenings. I can also work with you to fit your class around your schedule. I can arrange a weekday afternoon class if that is the only time you have available. I thoroughly love teaching, so click here to see a list of other classes I teach: http://creationsbychristina.net/?page_id=913
