with Tanya Trzeciak Pot Luck - 6:00 p.m. Workshop - 7:00 p.m. Turn ordinary vases or bottles into works of art by using a technique that mimics mercury glass. It is very simple and easy to do. It uses vinegar and spray paint and your ingenuity to create a fun project. We will also be working with “sea glass paint” to create objects in sea glass colors- perfect for summer. The church has many vases that we will use to create fun pieces to sell later on in our church yard sale. You are welcome to bring your own glass
