Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the delicate etchings of a crystal champagne flute to the crystalline webbing of a freshly vandalized windshield. Reflect on beauty with this Groupon.
$42 for a Beveled-Glass-Cross-Making Class ($85 Value)
This beginner's class requires no glass-cutting experience, and includes up to 10 students. During each three-hour session, amateur glass smiths learn how to use copper foil and a soldering iron. All supplies are included, and students create and take home their own 12"x7.5" cross. Classes are listed on the schedule on select Saturdays, as well as the last Thursday of every month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Anything Goes With Glass
The teachers of Anything Goes With Glass demystify the creation of stained glass in accessible classes for students of all experience levels. Lessons cover topics from basic soldering to lamp-smithing, but those with a grand design in mind might profit from commissioning a custom piece. As added inspiration, the creators share their building with a pottery studio and a glass-blowing business, and encourage passing clouds to take whatever shape they feel best represents them.
