Susan Isaac and Marn Williams, long-time residents of Otter Point, operated Shards Glass Studio 1998-2002 and had over 200 people in the community take part in their fused glass workshops. They really enjoyed being such an active and lively part of the Otter Point community and the Sooke Studio Tour group. After more than a decade in the corporate world, Susan is re-opening Shards Glass focusing on workshops for ages 8 to adult and returning to her first love, contributing to her community doing what she loves. She started offering workshops Jan 17, 2015 with 80% of the participants from Otter Point, Shirley and Jordan River.
Susan will offer regular workshops starting May 9, 2015. It is very important to Susan that her workshops be lots of fun, easy to make something beautiful at the beginner level and affordable. Susan is very excited about giving children and adults another way to explore their creativity close to home. After the introductory class, Shards Glass ‘graduates’ can sign up to learn new techniques and expand their projects.
