NO Days Road Show at Glassic Arts - DeLand, Florida

NO Days Demo with Carrie Strope Sohayda
Welcome to Glassic Arts in DeLand, Florida! Glassic Arts is a small stained glass studio that specializes in creating custom stained glass entryways, kitchen cabinet inserts, room dividers, fused glass vases, bowls, wall art, and more. In addition, stained glass, glass fusing, and lampworking classes are offered!

Plus, if you're too hot in the balmy Florida weather, you can work during open studio hours in an air-conditioned studio for just $5 an hour! As an added bonus, if you need to send any fragile handmade creations to friends, relatives or clients, Glassic Arts is a Safe Ship center with expertise in shipping glass safely!

The NO Days demos ran from 10am-3pm with groups of people rotating in and out consistently. To keep things rolling, I enlisted a little extra help from the audience! Kathi had recently purchased some thin beveled pendants and had some pressed millefiori ready and waiting. As chance would have it, Streuter Technologies had just released the NO Days Groutless Mosaic Adhesive, which is perfect for micro mosaic jewelry!

   After working tirelessly throughout the day, we were ready for the students who had signed up for the NO Days ThinFuse Fused Glass Mosaics class in the evening. We had a great turnout with just enough table space.

Even Kathi got a chance to play along!

As always, everyone was able to finish their projects in less than two hours! I always love to see the variations that the students come up with:
