: Spend approximately two hours playing with glass and visiting with friends. At the end of the session your creations go into the kiln. Finished pieces are ready for pick up within a week. This class offers a little bit of glass teaching and a lot of creativity and laughter. Read more for details:

Choose one project from the following:
  • Option A: Make one sun-catcher (approx. 5×5′ or 3×6″) and four pendants
  • Option B: Make one small dish and two pendants
