Greetings from East Falls Glassworks.  There are many special events and 
class offerings that we wanted to share with the community.

East Falls Glassworks will be holding a studio open-house on both 
Saturday and Sunday, Oct 7th and 8th. We are participating in POST, the 
Philadelphia Open Studio Tours. This will be a particularly good day to 
visit Sherman Mills since there will be at least 16 other open studios 
for people to visit. Both galleries in the complex will have openings as 
well.  You can find some more information, including a list of the 
participating artists on the Sherman Mills Arts 
<http://shermanmillsarts.com> home page.

There is an 8 week Intermediate class starting next Thursday with a few 
spots remaining.  If you've been through our Intro I and Intro II and 
would like to work on refining your technique, this would be an 
excellent class.  Emphasis will be on hands-on time and skill building 
exercises.  You can see more information about this class on our class 
information page <http://www.eastfallsglass.com/classes.php>.

We are pleased to announce that Maestro Elio Quarisa will be returning 
to teach an Advanced Venetian Techniques workshop the week starting 
February 19th.  This will be a longer class than last time, it will run 
through Saturday, with a half day on Wednesday.  The class will be 
intensive with about 4 hours of demonstrations followed by 4 hours of 
supervision, then a few hours of free practice time.  We are still 
working out all the details for the class, price will be around $750.  
The class information has not yet been published on the web site, we 
wanted to give our community advance notice so you can put it on your 
calendars.  If you are interested in this class, please send us email so 
we can put you on the list. We took lots of pictures during Elio's last 
class here. <http://www.eastfallsglass.com/elio.php>

If you visit the East Falls Glassworks website 
<http://www.eastfallsglass.com>, you should notice some recent changes.  
We have cleaned up the look of the site and added online registration 
for classes.  If you have any ideas for ways to further improve the web 
site, we'd love to hear from you.  We would like this site to be a 
valuable resource for the glassblowing and glass loving community.
