Bring 2-3 patterns from which you’d like to pull specific elements, an idea of the size you’d like to make and a pencil and eraser. We’ll get a good start the first night and by the end of the last class you should have a brand new window design ready to build.

Edge Up Pendants with Dichro - $55 August 20th, Thursday, one week, 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Edge Up Bowls - 55 August 8th, Saturday, 1 week, 10:30am - 2:30pm

Whether you’ve taken it before, have some fusing experience or have no idea how to do anything in glass, this is the class for you. Each student will assemble one bowl using glass strips and bits of rods over the course of this 4 hour long class. If you’ve never cut glass before we’ll show you how. If you want a class where you and your kids work together on something amazing, now is your chance! All you need to bring is a bit of patience and some tweezers. Sign up soon because this class will fill up. No experience needed.
