Don't Forget this Friday June 21,2013 is our Meet the Artist event, Glass Lampwork Artist Mary Lockwood is teaching a class at our studio, Graceful Customs, this coming weekend. Class is full but if you are in the area this is a good opportunity to meet her. She will be demonstrating some of her techniques & will have her beads on Display. Refreshments served. Contact me or Grace if you have any questions.
