    I have had the great oppotunity to take 3 classes here. I made a plate in 2 different classes, a jewelry in advanced class. Lavae had great faith in me. Lots of choice of class colours, textures,from pieces of glass to the fine dust. It is all sorted and accessible awaitng your creation. In such a lovely studio and location, one can’t help but be inspired.
    My classess were in June 2013, oct 2013, April 2014. Highly recommended activity!

      Gecko Glass work is available for sale at two locations in Samara. The Dragonfly Gallery is on the main street into town, east side of the street by Coc’s Mexican Restaurant. Samara Organics is at the Natural Center, one block east and on the corner of the beach street near the school. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, call me (2656-1010)cause I have a few things here at the studio.

  3. I really love the look of the votive holders! Especially the last picture of green ones. Very pretty!
