New 5 day enhanced format!  Students will create THREE casted rocks including a double rock!  Learn the most creative and jaw dropping technique that has been brought to fused glass this past year. 

   Born of a distant star, hurled through space by unknown forces, Kate Rocks! capture nebulae and deliver them to Earth in the form of pure visual intrigue captured in glass.  Kate MacLeod’s imagination, coupled with a bit of savant, brings this vision to life.
