Fused Holiday Trees - $30 November 13th, Thursdays, 2 weeks 6 - 8pm

We’re helping you with holiday decorating or your holiday shopping list with this Fused Holiday Tree class. Each student may make 3 trees during class time.

We’ll use week 2 for instruction in safe sawing and assembly. No experience needed.

 

 

Copper Foil Treasure Boxes - $40 November 19th, Wednesday, 2 weeks 6 - 8:00pm

The copper foil box is made with all sorts of interesting possibilities. First, there is the decorative soldering, then there is the choice of using agates, bevels or a cool combination of glass for the box lid. Bring your cutting and breaking tools, glass, foil, soldering iron, solder, flux, odd bits of glass and decorative metal that can be soldered and we will show you the rest! The first class will be on November 19th, we’ll be closing early the next wednesday (the 26th) and the second class will take place on December 3rd from 6-8 pm. Beginning stained glass required.

Frit Casting Plates- $55 December 4th, Thurdays, 2 weeks 6-8pm

Choose one of our BRAND NEW frit casting molds and spend a relaxing evening filling in the designs with medium frit. The second week we’ll do some final touches and cap everything. After firing and slumping you’ll be amazed at how such a simple form can lead to such an amazing final plate. Space is limited so sign up and pick a mold before all the good ones are taken. No experience needed.

 

 

Glass Boil- $60 December 6th, Saturdays, 2 weeks, 10:30-12:30

You’ve seen our glass boiled door knobs in the shop and we are finally ready to offer this as a class. We’ll provide the forms and the firings and students will be filling the forms and letting the magic happen. The second week each student will have a disc of boiled glass that we’ll show how to cut into cabishons, dishes, tiles and of course, knobs. This is a great class for using up fusible scrap but there is no experience needed.

 

 

Paint & Wire Wrapped Pendants- $45 December 10th, Wednesdays, 2 weeks 6-8pm

If you missed our last pendant technique and wire wrapping class you can make it up to us by trying out this one. The first week will involve getting a little messy with the fusing paints and being a little creative with designs. The second week we’ll be cutting up and wrapping the glass fired from the first week. This is a great class to make sets of jewelry or a pile of necklaces for gifts. No experience needed.

 

 

Super Easy Fused Snowflakes- $40 December 18th, Thursday 1 night, 6-8pm

All you need for this class is a pair of tweezers and a sheet of glass. We’ll teach you how to cut consistent skinny strips and how to assemble them on individual shelves to end with surprisingly strong fused snowflakes to hang in the window or on a tree. Each student will have space to make 2 complete snowflakes and we’ve got a variety of patterns to choose from. Why not squeeze one more class in before the gift giving season is over? No experience needed

Glass Endeavors will be closing at 6pm on November 26th and will remained closed on November 27th. We will also be closed December 24th until January 6th. Please have a wonderful holiday season!
