Dichroic Fused Glass Pendants
with Deenie Pacik
Saturday, June 18 at 10:30am

Holyoke Public Library
250 Chestnut Street, Holyoke, MA 01040

Drill press, grinder, soldering iron, pliers…these are some of the tools artist Deenie Pacik uses to make fused glass and stained glass creations in her home studio in Warwick, RI.
While the art requires a delicate hand, a bit of strength helps.
Join us, on Saturday, June 18, at 10:30am, as we learn about and how to create our own Dichroic fused glass pendants. Be inspired by colorful precut glass and crushed glass. Deenie will teach parents and children ages 8 years old to safely handle glass in a party setting class that is easy and fun while creating their own fused glass pendants. Great gift making idea!
On Friday, July 29 at 4:00 p.m. Deenie, will teach young adults create their fused glass pendants.

Both dates have limit of 30 participants. Registration is required.
‘Fused glass’ is glass that has been fired or heat-processed in a kiln, an oven for burning, baking or drying glass and pottery at a range of high temperatures. To fuse glass, the kiln is set at 1,200 to 1,500 degrees.
Deenie Pacik spends most of her time designing and working on projects like stained glass windows, etched doors, fused glass windows and an etched crossword tray, to name a few.
In addition to designing and performing stained glass repairs, she also teaches classes on fused glass, is writing and illustrating a children’s book Turtle Magic, in which a young girl loses her ‘adventure cape’ and a friendly turtle helps her find it by taking her on a journey around the world atop its shell.
