Description:  Let’s get creative with a little bit of recycled glass to make a one of a kind sculpture for your garden. No experience necessary to participate. All materials are included.

Your creation will be smaller than the one pictured in the example and will contain different glass types. You will design your own but can use this piece for reference. Each participant’s creation will be unique to the creating artist. All materials will vary because they are sourced from recycled materials. Ages 17+. Closed-toed shoes and long pants required. Participants should bring a packed lunch.

About Jacqui Bush: This class will be led by Jacqui Bush of Stained Glass of McKinney. Jacqui took her first copper foil class in 1997 and hasn't looked back.  From flat glass to warm glass, and silver art clay to enamels, her classes and experimenting continue. In 2004, she could no longer resist the call of the glass and left her career in technology to open a studio. She has a contagious passion for glass in all its forms and loves to share it with others through teaching and demonstrating.
