Guild Meeting Notes

Anyone, member or not, is welcome to attend our General meetings. They are held via Zoom so it doesn’t matter where you live. Click on the event to get the Zoom link the week of the event if you are a member. Anyone can submit the form can get link by email. General meetings are usually recorded so members can log-in to see it at a convenient time.

The same Zoom info above is true of Board meetings: anyone can attend. Instead of recordings, Minutes are posted after they are approved. If you have some time to volunteer you might want to attend and get to know the other volunteers.

April: Video of the Mosaics meeting is in 2 parts: #1 Mark Brody, #2 Sponsor Kory Dollar. Get the scoop on glues and some useful new tools. Members:log-in to view them

June: Fred Buxton, sponsor Roz Stanton, Richard LaLonde, Karen Seymour, sponsor Gerald McBride, Mitzi Kugler and a few others showed their solutions to displaying their glass. We were surprised by how many different ways people have come up with to incorporate the stand, hanger, or suspension into the design of your work. The video will be posted soon.


July 18th, 2pm-3:30 Inclusions and Reactions Color in glass is usually due to metal ions. Reactions between these ions often cause unexpected interactions between colors: show off how you’ve harnessed that interaction. What happens when you include actual metal in glass? What other things non-glass things have you incorporated in your work? Please contact Karen Seymour if you have something to share so we can sort of organize some of the speakers in advance.
