Fused Glass workshop

This is an amazing opportunity to learn from and interact with a well-known pioneer in glass fusing. He is the author of two books considered "the bible" in glass fusing - Richard La Londe: Fused Glass Art and Technique, and Richard La Londe & Friends - Book II.  He has created large scale public art projects all over the world, including the massive gates at the International Arrivals at SeaTac Airport.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have an artist of this caliber in our area! When we sketched at his studio in February, we found him to be humble and fascinating, his studio was warm and inviting. Now Richard has created a one day workshop specifically for The Whidbey Island Sketchers (and friends) with techniques that will appeal to sketchers. No glass experience is required. He will pre-cut the glass and fire the final piece for us.

We have a few spots left and would like to fill it to make best use of Richard's time and energy. We hope you will consider hanging out with us for a most unusual "sketching" day and a super inspired potluck lunch!  Please contact him directly if you have any questions.
