CUSTOMER APPRECIATION SALE
IT'S BIG! IT'S HUGE! IT'S AWESOME! IT'S THE ANNUAL C3 STUDIOS CUSTOMER APPRECIATION SALE!!!!!
We have lots of fabulous SPECIAL PRODUCTIONS AND ONE-OF-A-KINDS just for you. If you haven't seen the fractured irid on black, it looks like raku when fired. There will be a limited number available so get it while you can.
The month of September was used to clean house at the studio and at my home studio. AND I am re-organizing C3 Studios. We will be offering a sort of "garage sale" during the CUSTOMER APPRECIATION SALE" with things that we have not used for a long time, like about 100 stained glass pattern books. Look at the books as a starting place for new designs in your kilnformed glass. Some of our holiday projects came from these very same books.
We have 2 GRAND PRIZES this year thanks to Bullseye Glass. One Studio Fuser Pack ($406.55 value) and one Hot Rodz Starter Pack ($166.85 value). We have many other give-aways from Bullseye and other vendors so make sure to fill out the entry form for the drawings.
We are working it a little differently this year. Instead of limiting the sale to 3 days, we are keeping our normal business hours and having the sale for 2 weeks. REMEMBER that the first ones in get the pick of the special productions and curious glasses!

################################ WORKSHOP UPDATES ################################
HOLIDAY ORNAMENTS / SUN CATCHERS / STOCKING STUFFERS
$75 includes materials
LISA SAUNDERS, Guest Instructor
Celebrate the holidays with these fun ornaments OR use them as sun catchers or stocking stuffers. We will demonstrate how to use the Morton Glass Cutting System to cut the shapes. All the glass will be pre-cut, all you need to do is choose your colors and assemble. Add a little frit here and there and voila! No experience necessary. Everyone will make 3 ornaments/sun catchers. This is a great class for your young aspiring artists to work with you on a holiday project.
OCTOBER 17 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
PLAYING WITH REACTIONS
$65 plus $35 materials and lab fee
PAULA CHAMBERS, Instructor
So many potential reactions, so little time! Join us for step by step instructions on what to expect when you start combining certain colors or even silver foils with your Bullseye Glass. You will create six 4" x 4" test color tiles for your future reference so you can re-create these dramatic affects. No experience necessary.
OCTOBER 24 12:00 - 3:00
COPPER FOIL STAINED GLASS
$75 includes all materials
CHRISTY TURNER, Instructor
Copper foiling glass has soooo many possible applications. This is a basic class to demonstrate how to choose your glass, cut (Carol Webb's part), copper foil, the right and wrong way to solder, clean up, and of course safety. You will leave with a stained glass sun catcher. But start thinking outside of the box. Use this technique for small jewelry pieces, ornaments, then go on to make some small sculptural pieces, then lamps......
The possibilities are endless. No experience necessary. If you have done stained glass before, but it has been awhile, bring all your old tools etc. and let us show you how to use them.
Register ASAP for all classes so we can make sure we have enough materials ready for your use.
We will use this section for any announcements that you may want to share with others. In addition, we would like to offer a tip or trick of the month. You can email us at
TIP OF THE MONTH:
Did you know that you can use C3's product "WONDER GOOP" for more than just working with powders and frits? Use it to bond your fiber paper together for some fun and unique kiln carvings! This picture is "MORT", a ghost crab cut from fiber paper and assembled by Cathy Coverley to be used in the CYCLE OF LIFE project in May of 2016 at the Corning Museum of Glass. Cathy will be a guest instructor at C3 in March 2016 to share her vast knowledge of kiln casting with us. See Cathy's work at cathycoverley.com.
