OUR EVENTS AND WORKSHOPS
St. Hubert Elementary School
A Community of Caring School
Artopia was proud to visit St Hubert to teach a Glass Fusing Project. Thanks Mrs. DeGusti for your kind comments
I was in "AWE" when I saw the finished necklaces! You really surprised my class and me; with the presentations of the necklaces. The way they were professionally packaged! "UNBELIEVABLE," you included a necklace for every one of my students. Their faces beamed at the sight of their artwork. So different from the piece of glass they started with. They had so much enjoyment working with you!
We displayed the necklaces in our Art show during parent teacher interviews and received many positive feedback.
Everything that you did for us was so very kind, considerate and generous of you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
We could not have asked for a better instructor!!
I'm sure I will see you back at our school in the near future!!
Thank you again,

GLASS BEAD MAKING

Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by shaping with tools and hand movements.

will allow you to complete your project and impress your friends.
