Girl Guides earn badges through art

#1 Sooke Girl Guides take a course in making glass pendants

#1 Sooke Girl Guide Unit earned their art production badge in a very unusual way May 11 at Shards Glass Studio on Otter Point Rd.

Susan Isaac of Shards Glass Studio and Jill Wark, Girl Guide leader put their heads together and developed a custom glass pendant workshop perfect for the girls.

The 15 girl guides got to work creating after learning fused glass combines 4,000 year- old techniques with electric kilns and computer programs. There was lots of laughter and creative cooperation that resulted in beautiful colourful pendants. Now each girl will have to answer the question, “How did you do that?”

Teagan Liptrott, a Girl Guide and graduate of two Shards Glass Studio workshops, assisted with cutting glass, set-up and clean-up. Gemini Rogers also a Girl Guide and Shards grad, also cut glass for the girls.

Girl guides: Bethany McNaught, Carly Wristen, Sophia Nilsson, Talia Whitten, Louisa Ralph, Isabel Keoughan, Olivia Keoughan, Katrina Stehle, Talia Whitten, Georgia Wark, Teagan Liptrott, Gemini Rogers, Kiera Pitts, Orianna Reda, Hailey Whitmore

Leaders: Jill Wark, Kathleen Stevens, Caryn Drabitt, Karen Keoughan (parent)
