Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the ornate windows of a Gothic cathedral to the crystalline webbing of a freshly vandalized windshield. Reflect on beauty with this Groupon.
$59 for a Glass-Art Class Package ($130 Total Value)
- A six-week stained-glass or glass-fusing class (a $120 value)
- A $10 gift card, good toward class materials
Classes gather in intimate groups for two hours a week, with sessions available in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Flexible classes allow pupils to miss a class and pick up where they left off on their stained glass or glass-fusing projects. Students are responsible for purchasing required materials such as glass and wire; total costs usually range from $50 to $100 for the whole, six-week course.
Grand Central Stained Glass & Graphics
Bored with the staid security of corporate life, Eloyne and Bradley Erickson founded Grand Central Stained Glass & Graphics in 2006, dedicating themselves to bringing their love of fine art to the community. Focusing on decorative glass, the shop sells beautiful pieces and commissioned work, intensively collaborating with customers to create unique, colorful doors, decorative windows, or whimsical alien-observation tanks. Its regular classes teach pupils how to fuse and color glass in small workshop settings, and jewelry-making sessions teach aspiring artisans how to use wire to craft custom adornments. The shop’s giclée printing services reproduce photos and art with an Epson Stylus Pro 9800 printer, which obsessively corrects color until clients are satisfied with each piece's final balance.
