Description: This highly anticpated Master class can now be learned in the comfort of your home!  This video does not expire and is yours forever.  Watch anytime.

In this video lesson Nancy will reveal her process of creating fantastical gardens in glass. This will be a multi-step and multi-element process that will include many techniques and use of various vitreous materials. Beyond walking you through a floral garden project step by step, firing by firing, the glass forming techniques you learn in this lesson can be applied to a multitude of projects.

Included in this lesson: vitrograph planning and process - if you do not have a vitrograph kiln to create the elements,  AAE is now selling vitrograph stringers for your convenience - working over a torch to create unique fusible elements, planning and crafting part sheets, methods for generating a variety of visual effects using frits, powders and dry enamels. Students also learn how to work with HXtal glue to make a final professional presentation of their project. Nancy will challenge you to think outside the box, and make decisions in an improvisational way, creating art in real time! Nancy also imparts little gems of wisdom gained through working with glass as a medium for nearly 40 years including tips for keeping your workspace tidy, reducing waste, storing elements, safety, and strategies for minimizing coldworking. The ideas and approaches presented in this video are sure to help you gain a better understanding of kiln formed glass in general. All of this plus a beautiful 30-page handout that reviews and highlights important information covered in this online class.

In one of the segments in this video, Nancy instructs how to create vitrograph stringers. If you do not have a vitrograph kiln, AAE has created the stringers for you in Nancy's recipe. You can purchase them HERE.  Vitrograph stringers are NOT required for the process, it adds to it.  This is a matter of artistic expression.

    This technique is helping me use up a ton of scrap glass in a very beautiful way. I have an old torch and have been able to use my lampung working skills to create many pieces to include in my projects. I have received a ton of compliments on these pieces
    I love the classes since I live in rural Alberta Canada and not many classes come my way!

    Love this video. As we live in Australia, we can never attend any of the great classes that are held at AAE Glass. These videos are the next best thing. It is great that they are downloads so that there is not postage to worry about. Exchange rate bad enough with postage as well. Love the variety of techniques in this video especially. Thanks to everyone concerned.

    I've wanted to make a garden or landscape in glass but didn't know how to get started. This video shared so many ideas and techniques - things that I would never have thought of doing to make a real dream garden! Nancy is a terrific instructor and made me feel like I could do this! She takes you through all the steps and I developed lots of ideas for my special garden. Now I can hardly wait for Part 2 on underwater sea gardens - looking forward to all those luscious blues and greens with colorful fish and sea garden plants!

    She makes beautiful pieces and leads a great instructional video. Many of the reviews mention the use of vitrigraph elements but if you don't have a vitrigraph kiln, no worries! There is plenty of technique in this class to justify the purchase and watching of this video.


    The fact that her technique makes good artful use of a fair amount of what we all call scrape glass (which we won't tell the clients and galleries) is icing on the cake! I love buying glass but boy, the bins of scrap that i will do something with someday are growing madly. Besides, it gives me excuse to buy more glass as I think a single layer 4mm base is a wise thing.

    As always, production values are very high on the Education Center videos.

    Nancy presents, in a clear and concise manner, many techniques in this video, as well as one possibility (the floral garden) of putting the techniques altogether. But once you start pulling stringer, making murrini and using up scrap glass, your head will spin thinking of how to incorporate them into other work!

    The video was amazing. Nancy was an amazing instructor. Very articulate and specific about each step. The "garden" utilizes many of the components you already use in your pieces... they are just enhanced with her process.. I learned alot about layering and how to do it to get the most amazing product. Thanks again to AAE staff that put this together

    I was looking for a new technique when I saw the emails from AAE announcing Nancy’s video. I couldn’t wait for it to be published and have watched it over and over. The techniques are very straight forward and Nancy’s teaching style is easy to follow. I currently have a project in the works and hope to post the finished project. Plus I just heard part 2 is coming out in October. In better get working.

    Nancy is so inspirational with her ideas. She has a no mistake ideation which allows the watcher to dream big. She takes ordinary glass and makes it extraordinary. After watching this I picked up a piece I had started months ago and had put aside and made it into a piece I am proud of. She shows you how to layer and refire pieces multiple times, how to pull vitrograph and basically how to think outside the box. It is a great video.

    This was a great tutorial. I was hesitant to purchase it because I don't know that I would make the "garden", although pretty, it isn't my style. But I am SO glad I did buy it anyhow because the techniques she shows and hits she gives has my mind whirling with creative ideas to use the techniques in other projects!
    I really did enjoy it and am looking forward to the Under the Sea class..... and actually, maybe the garden is my style after all - at least I want to try one or two. :)
    I have already used a few of the methods in other projects and am loving the result!

    It's always fun taking a class from Nancy. It's not only a good time but you learn tons of techniques, shortcuts, and there's always organizational secrets to help you out.

    Well ... this video did not disappoint. It's full of great techniques that can be used in all sorts of projects, pointers on how to keep unique pieces ready and at your fingertips, and lots of whimsical inspiration to get the imagination jumping. Definitely well worth having in your library!

    This class is packed with information that will definitely be used in future fusing projects. All of the different elements that are discussed are explained with thoroughness that a novice can understand and replicate. I have purchased several video classes and all have been good; this one however, is outstanding with the amount of information and technique that is packed into it. The instructor is clear and concise. The level of detail in her examples are excellent. Well worth the admission price!
