Yvette sent this to me today, and because the classes below say 
registration is on a FCFS (first-come, first-served) basis,
if any PA-NJ Glassblowers are interested in Corning's EXCELLENT classes, 
do not procrastinate...

I also note, for those with children, the one-day workshops allow 
children 10 years of age or older to register.
The youngest I have generally seen from other studios is 13, so this may 
be a wonderful potentially life-changing opportunity for a young person 
who has expressed an interest in glass art.
This age is not without precedent, since, for example, many famous 
Murano/Venice glassblowers, such as Elio Quarisa (who is teaching in 
February) started at age 9.

Speaking of Elio, I have photos of Josh Simpson and Elio Quarisa working 
together here:
and some of my unique Josh Simpson photos have recently been selected 
for the front cover of a new Knoxville Museum of Art "Gallery Guide".
