Creating art is like relaxing under a blue sky stimulating

Here is the perfect opportunity for you to experience the miracle of seeing your ideas move from virtual reality into masterpieces of complete reality. Rocketfrog Stained Glass Studios at Mount Gravatt East makes these miracles happen in a relaxed, supportive and creative environment.

Glass art maestro, Jet Carroll, owner and instructor at Rocketfrog Studios, is the holder of a BA in Architectural Glass and has followed her passion with glass art since 1991. She has taught all comers in the beautiful art. Under Jet's tutelage you will develop skills and abilities to where you transform a few pieces of disparate glass into works of art.

Learn how in one of these great courses.

Glass Fusing Classes
Friday, 8 June from 9.30am to 2.00pm;
Saturday, 9 June from 9.30am to 2.00pm; and
Sunday, 10 June 10.00am to 2.30pm.

Pick your preferred date and get ready to learn the skills and enjoyment associated with kiln formed glass and converting glass pieces into fused glass objets d'art.

The workshops are a fast and fun way for getting familiar with glass fusing and ideal for beginners who want to give this form of glass art a try. Make your own coasters, jewellery, sun catchers, or leadlight and mosaic inclusions in blues, greens, reds, yellows, or whatever colours take your fancy. Once finished, your glass art pieces will be kiln- fired and ready for collection during the following week.

Cost for the Glass Fusing One Day Workshop is $110.00 per person which includes the cost of the glass and kiln firings as well as use of workshop tools and facilities.



Glass Mosaic Course
The Glass Mosaic Course runs for five consecutive Fridays commencing on Friday, 20 July and running until Friday, 17 August, 2018. Classes kick off at 10.00am and finish at 1.00pm.

Be guided and supported by Jet as you construct a piece of art you first saw in your imagination. The course covers mosaic design and concepts, glass and tile cutting skills, adhesives, grouting and much more. At the end you will be the proud creator of your own mosaic terracotta platter, paving stone, mirror or garden ball.

Fee for the five weeks is $150.00 plus the cost of your project which is usually about $80.00. Confirm your booking now to secure your place by giving Jet a call on 0421 063 369.
