Beads of Courage 

What is the Beads of Courage Program?

The Program is a resilience-based intervention designed to support and strengthen children and families coping with serious illness. Through the program children tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path.

How Does it Work?

Upon enrollment each child is given the Beads of Courage bead color guide with a detachable membership card. Their Beads of Courage journey begins when each child is first given a length of string and beads that spell out their first name. Then, colorful beads, each representing a different treatment milestone are given to the child by their professional health care provider to add to their Beads of Courage collection throughout their treatment as determined by the Beads of Courage Bead Guide (available from Beads of Courage, Inc.)

Field trip to Denver Glass Machinery 

My gratitude goes out to Holly Morrison and the Denver Glass Machinery, for such an inspiring talk about cold-working at our last meeting.

We had about 25 members attend. It gave us all food for thought and we are very appreciative for Holly opening her place of business to us all. You, Holly, are a treasure!

Nancy Bonig 

I want to thank Nancy Bonig for an wonderful slide show, and informative and incredible talk on approaching galleries. Good lessons to learn, especially before our Echters show in November. Thank you, Nancy. Your time and advice were so valuable to us all!

GAF received an excluse invitation, by D&L Art Glass Supply, to a meet and greet for Devon Willis, our Bullseye representative.

She is bringing the Bullseye screen printing method for glass to Denver, and we want to make her feel incredibly welcome.

Join members of the Glass Artist's Fellowship and Rocky Mountain Flameworkers in learning more about the basic chemistries of Bullseye reactive glass.

In the presentation, you will see an extensive collection of samples and finished works in order to learn what reactive effects occurred to make each piece and how you can harness them to enhance your own work.

Sneak a peek at special production sheets in stock at D&L Art Glass Supply.
