Over the next three days, renowned glass artists Karen Willenbrink and Jasen Johnsen will be teaching folks the techniques necessary to create works in this challenging medium. And while glass artistry is a skill set most of us will never develop, it's easy to appreciate the process, as it is truly dramatic. People interested in all things glass will be able to meet with the visiting artists, who travel worldwide teaching the craft, at this special pre-workshop reception. The husband-and-wife team specializes in glass owls and tree branches that are startling in their minute detail and realism. During the party, guests will be invited to enjoy wood-fired pizza while watching a glass-art demonstration onsite.
