About instructor

Nadia Tasci is an established Canadian glass artist and has a full-time studio practice with glass flame-working and silver jewellery fabrication. 

 

Over the course of her career, she has used the medium of glass to express various artistic narratives.

Her design approach begins with a tremendous devotion to her material. Always aiming to push traditional glass bead-making boundaries, Nadia uses unique methods of design to explore the visual dialogue between colour, form and pattern, creating dynamic and engaging contemporary jewellery.

 

Nadia studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design University’s Drawing and Painting program and Sheridan College’s Craft and Design (Glass) program. She has also participated in several creative development workshops over the years in the USA, Mexico and Central America.

Her works have been published internationally and she has received recognition for detailed and high quality craftsmanship. A recipient of the Ontario Arts Council’s exhibition assistance, she received a travel grant from Craft Ontario, to support her creative development. Over the last 15 years she has been invited to exhibit her work across Canada, USA, UK and Japan.

 

Presently, she works full-time at her studio in Toronto, Canada.
