2nd-4th April – Pati Walton “Masterclass”, 3 days of Pati’s magic – including garden and aqaurium beads, signature can and simple/complex murrini and damn good fun!!

5th/6th April – Sarah Hornik, Colour magic and combination’s, along with more freestyle “glass jam” sessions where  the studio will come to life and everyone is encouraged to meet and work with Sarah and see some of her new work and develop their own pieces!.. The ultimate studio session with like minded artists pushing each other to do the very nicest work!.. And naturally, lots of fun, laughter and great food and company before we head on home to all points of the compass!..

The final closing party promises to be epic, and I suspect friends made here will be friends for ever…

Naturally the above does not include the “Cast Beads” classes that Di East will be running in a smaller part of the studio, or the late night glass jamin’ sessions where i expect to see the local artist come along to show us how it is really done!.. there are plenty of rumours doing the rounds as to who will be in Murano, but I KNOW the Big Kahuna (Mike Frantz) is going to be there – and his friends and guests are sure to pop in!.. there will be so many opportunities to hook up with folks from allover, the social side of this whole thing may be the most important of all!!

I will be taking along and setting up webcams to give us a shot at streaming clips of courses and parties, and will be updating the blogs and the websites as the fun goes down.. we need to start spreading the word on this thing now, so anyone who thinks they may know someone else who would be interested please point them on over here and lets “get this party started”!!!

whoo hoo!!!! roll on spring!! enough of this grim wet cold miserable weather – come on down to Venice in the spring and have some fun!
