Shop Local, Shop Handmade - Eastern Wind Glass

 Next up in my month long effort to shine a spot light on local artisans is Dixie at Eastern Wind Glass. her shop is located in downtown Bremerton near the corner of Callow on Burwell.There you will find an assortment of supplies for glass art making, both stained glass and fused glass. Have a stained glass piece that needs repair? Contact the shop to discuss your needs. She also has some of her own glass art for sale and you can sign up for classes.

I love this one!
Classes coming up include ornaments, boxes, kaleidoscopes and plated.There are also kids classes. See the full schedule on her website. A fun event coming up this week is  Evening with Glass  this Wednesday the 19th. For a cost of $25 you will make 5 ornaments while enjoying a social evening with food and drink.


One of Dixie's first creative endeavors was studying fashion design. From there she went into retail management. She has now taken her love of color and texture from fabrics to glass. She has been working with stained glass for 20 years and fused glass almost as long. She opened her shop in 2008 to share her knowledge of glass and provide a place for other glass makers to find supplies and take classes. Check the website for the store hours and be sure to stop in the next time you are in Bremerton.
