Summer moved so fast this year. It has been a packed summer with classes and friends, but also the fun of building out the studio at the coast. Watching the seasonal changes near the ocean will be a new experience for Ann. But even with all the summer work, and fun, the landscape classes at the Battleground Studio and beyond are still in full swing, and filling up!
Landscape pieces in progress
Ann’s next fused glass class at the Battleground Studio , Sept. 20 and 21, is sold out! With fall on the way, the leaves are poised to change, and all of this seasonal transition is a perfect inspiration for the landscape class!
Even though the September class is sold out, more will be held in the future, of course! Two-day classes are from 9:00-5:00 on the first day. On that day, students will receive demonstration and hands-on instruction in fused glass technique, and they will lay out their pieces to be fired. Students will come back a second day to come back and cold work/finish their pieces after they have been fired. If a second date is not specified, students will schedule their cold working day with Ann. Previous glass working experience is required. Pricing and more information can be found here
Also, don’t miss the class coming up on October 17th and 19th! Held at the Circle of Friends Gallery in Tumalo, Oregon, class starts at 9:00 am on the 17th, and the cold-working section starts at 11:00 am on the 19th. You can reach the gallery at 541-480-6361 for more information.

One of the priorities in Ann’s search for a home on the Oregon Coast was that there would be a space for a glass studio. Now that she is getting settled into the house, the work on the studio can begin!
The blank slate
It will be fun to see the transformation of this space into a studio where Ann can bring the inspiration she gets from the Oregon Coast to life!
