Limited Time Classes now through March

Learn glass painting and slumping, a functional as well as decorative art form. On Saturday, Jan. 7th, accomplished artist, Jeni Novak, will guide students step-by-step through this simple glass painting process. The class will be at the Caladium Arts and Co-operative 132 East Interlake Boulevard in Lake Placid.

The paint is powdered glass and when fired, it melts into the glass becoming part of it and not just sitting on the surface, Novak explained. Dishes and other pieces can be washed without damaging the paint surface. Slumping is firing a flat piece of glass over different shaped molds to produce a desired shape. Due to firing time the finished pieces will be available for pick up one week after class.

Join in the fun by learning a brand-new way to paint glass and create attractive pieces of art. Class will be Jan. 7, 12:00-3-30 at the Caladium Co-op.  Cost is $45 which includes all supplies and firing.


A new class, Clay Puzzling, is being offered at the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative. The process of taking small pieces of clay and putting them together to form your own masterpiece is perfect for the beginner as well as the advanced artist. Artist and Co-op member, Jeni Novak, will be teaching this exciting and fun technique that almost anyone can do. In 2009 Novak was trained by Michael Harbridge, who created the process of clay puzzling, and she has been teaching the technique throughout the state of Florida ever since.

Discover the simple methods of clay puzzling through two class sessions. The first class, the shaping and forming of your project, will be on Jan. 12 from 12pm to 3:30pm. Clay projects then must cure for two weeks before firing. The second class, on January 26 from 12pm to 3:30pm, you will assemble and paint your pottery. The cost is $65 which covers both classes, firing and all supplies needed.

Call to  reserve a space for this new class offering. The Caladium Co-op is now open on Mondays for the winter season. Hours are 10-4 Monday through Saturday.
