Every holiday season, Sequoia Members and volunteers donate their time and materials to make ornaments for Sequoia’s Annual Holiday Tree. JoAnn Wellner opens her glass studio to teach members how to make fused glass ornaments using glass shapes which are artfully arranged on a glass base and then “baked” at a very high heat to fuse the glass pieces.
Other members are busy making a variety of ornaments such as paintings on miniature canvases, hand-carved wooden ornaments and handstiched fabric ornaments. The variety is endless and every year is a surprise.
Best of all, the sale of these beautiful ornaments benefits Sequoia’s non-profit mission to bring the arts and art programming to the greater Hillsboro Community.
