In January, the Glass Art Guild of Utah hosted glass and ceramic artist Shelley Long for a three-day fused glass painting class. Techniques included various painting methods, working in layers, and firing thicker slabs. Nine members of the Guild took advantage of this great opportunity to learn new skills.

Check out guild member Dana Worley’s blog post about the class for a summary, as well as links to some great tutorials. Stay tuned for some fabulous new work as our glass artists leverage the techniques they learned!

The Guild would like to thank Shelley for her great teaching and inspiration, guild member Kathy Watt for hosting the event in her home studio, and all the artists who were able to join us for this great long-weekend event.
