Bring the beauty of art glass into your home, with this fun and functional workshop!
Join us for a 3 hour workshop where you will create works of art to take home. We
will teach you to create your own set of colorful glass coasters, offering different
possibilities for working with color and design. We will supply you with a wider
variety of colored flat glass and rods which will be used to decorate a clear glass
canvas. Learn glass cutting to create your own decorative accents, or work with
pre-cut shapes available for your creative exploration. We will fire your pieces
after class, and they will be available for pick up on the following Tuesday. This
class is suitable for ages 7 and up. If anyone is uncomfortable cutting glass, precut
shapes can be used to create their art.
