Our first visiting artist for January 2019 is JeriLyn Alderman! She has been an active lampworker for about 15 years, calling the Mesa Arts Center, in Arizona, her home base as artist in residence and teacher. We have a couple of opportunities to learn from her and we cannot wait to participate! Her husband will also be here and we’ve set up a workshop with him as well! More info below.
