From Deb's website:

The sign up is now open for GS West, 2011, read on for how to enter!

Come and join us for the 9th annual Glass Stock 2011! A sharing, collaborating event which has run for 8 years on the Oregon Coast by Deb Crowley and many other fantastic artists with much success! From a small gathering of 30 of Deb's friends in 2003 to almost 90 in attendance in 2010, this event has grown in popularity with artists willing to teach and share for the opportunity to do the same. It is a chance to get "out of the box" and learn new skills, get priceless feedback and inspiration.

Glass Stock West 2010 was such a huge success that Eugene Glass School and the GSWest team are excited for us to come back again for GS West in 2011, woohoo! It will be in Eugene, OR on Labor Day weekend, Sept 1st-4th, 2011.

The price for the 4 day event is $550. This includes 6 half day classes, all supplies, plus open torches, evening festivities and Sunday evening auction. A few classes like wire wrapping and PMC (Silver clay) will have fees, most classes will not have any additional fees. We will have a Meet and Greet to start things off on Wednesday night before event begins! A list of nearby lodgings will be posted soon, there are several hotels/motels in the area. Hot, yummy meals will be available from the Master Chef Saeed at EGS for a very good price right at the venue! Lodgings and food are NOT included in tuition!

There will be a lottery draw for the 45 spots as usual. We will draw names on Saturday, May 7th, 2011 with notification going out on May 8th via GS West Newsletter. Information on payments will be in that newsletter, we will accept payments on Saturday, June 4rth, follow instructions in newsletter. More information will be emailed in monthly newsletter on payments and class selections after the names are drawn.

Hot shop classes will be treated as an "excursion", with fee of $50 each
per 6 students as an add on. Eugene Glass School will be handling these hot shop classes directly, all payments go directly to the school. More on that soon!

Featured artists are Bandhu Dunham and Margaret Zinser!

Over 50 different classes to chose from with flameworking, glassblowing, fusing, etching, coldworking as well as wire-wrapping, PMC, Kaiser Lee Board slumping, copper enameling and much more!

Sign up for the 9th Annual GS West is NOW open, enter only once please.


Glass Stock West 2011 is sure to be an event you'll remember long after it is over!

HannahRachel 2011-03-21 4:51pm

I missed the band last year. Looking forward to a little more time at the event this year.

Some of the links on the website were broken - if you were having trouble with them, they should be fixed now.

Deb - the fishie arrived in the mail before my weekend classes and show. Its AMAZING.

artsyuno 2011-03-21 6:10pm

The band made very fun background music for torching.

As I've told you, you need to keep better control over your friends and family. :(

deb c 2011-05-07 12:29pm

Well, we will be having that same band (hopefully.... awaiting confirmation) but I am going to try my best to make this year even better. I will say it is getting hard to top it each year, but with Margaret Zinser and Bandhu, well, let's just say I am super excited too!
We will be notifying attendees (and scholarships) this Sunday night with a newsletter from GSWest. It will have payment options and class sign up info. Please save this for your records! Please also preview the classes up now, schedule will be posted in the next 2 weeks.

Get ready everyone, payments and sign up begin Sat, June 4rth at 9am PST!

Hope to see all of you there!
Hugs and happiness from deb and the GSWest team!
