Anyone can attend our General Meetings. Feel free to share the Zoom link with people you think might also be interested but please DON’T post it on public forums so we avoid attracting those who think breaking up a Zoom meeting is fun.

We’ve got some innovative artists promising to attend. For the Zoom info and the partial list of speakers see

You’re invited to show your solutions too. The show and tell style meeting is aimed at getting glass artists to think about their piece as a whole, including how to display it, and to inspire the group to share ideas of how to do that. Each artist will speak for a minute or two, take any questions and then we’ll move on. It will be recorded for Members to view later.

He will also introduce his tile sources, where to get the proper materials, and why they work best for exterior works. Most importantly he will introduce 2 methods of mosaic to get any project started. Lastly, he will offer two great ways to get into mosaics: his At-home Mosaic Kits and his Summer Mosaic workshop schedule. Learn mosaics on your own or take a class with Mark Brody

Looking for WordPress Webmaster

posted in: General News | 0

Help the Guild nurture the glass community and learn something at the same time. Our webmaster manages the website’s technical resources and behaviors (in the “back end”) that support the messages and content (on the “front end”). The actual content is created and managed by the members of various organizational teams of volunteers. You need basic familiarity with the WordPress back-end and ability to follow the WordPress release notes and comments to decide when to apply an upgrade. You don’t need to know it ALL already because the creator of the website is willing to provide a bit of free coaching. More details here

And other volunteers

If you don’t have the WordPress background but want to help our glass community in some capacity there are several other teams that could use whatever skills you have. Some tasks are about 4 hours a month and some may be up to 4 hours a week, most offer interaction with other team members (an important and fun contact during these Covid times): Facebook group moderator, Mailchimp audience manager, Zoom manager, glass arts writer, events poster, teaching and helping members post on the website (web-help team) and more. Training provided.
See https://www.pnwglassguild.org/about-the-guild/committees/ and contact one of the team members or fill out the form on the page.
