Introducing - Eastern Wind Glass
Another artisan you will meet at my spring sale on May 15th and 16th is Dixie with Eastern Wind Glass. One of Dixie's first creative endeavors was studying fashion design. From there she went into retail management. She took 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.
Eastern Wind Glass 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. Or perhaps you have an idea for a custom piece in mind. They also have glass art from several glass artists for sale. And they offer a wide variety of classes.
There are classes in both stained and fused glass for kids and adults. They provide all the tools. Classes include ornaments, boxes, kaleidoscopes and plates as well as beginner and advanced classes. See the full schedule on her website. For those who already have the skills studio and kiln time can be purchased. Classes also are posted on their Facebook page. Check the website for the store hours and be sure to stop in the next time you are in Bremerton.
