Adult Glass Class

Adult Evening Glass Classes

There is nothing quite like playing with colorful sparkly dichroic glass to get one's creative juices flowing! Use your imagination and a delightful assortment of glass to make window ornaments or custom jewelry such as pendants, earrings, brooches, keychains, or whatever your heart desires!. Gather your friends, family, neighbors, running/book club/team, fellow parents, etc and spend an evening making giftable and usable one-of-a-kind items and having some art play fun. This is also a terrific experience for teens. Evening classes are 6:30 - 8:45 pm.

Glass will fire overnight in the kiln and be ready for pickup within a week. Four to six participants per class.
