Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. Eloquently articulate your emotions with today's Groupon: for $50, you get admission to an Intro to Fusing class at Aquila Glass School in Kenton (a $109 value). The Aquila studio was originally established as a fused-glass studio before launching its own glasswork school. Beginning glasssmiths are welcomed with the introductory fusing class, which provides students with the instruction and materials necessary to create their own colorful glass artwork. At the beginning of each three-hour session, experienced teachers explain the basics of glasswork, including safety tactics and glass-cutting techniques, after which students get to produce six take-home pieces of art—four glass pendants, a glass bowl, and one larger tray. Reservations are required for classes; check the schedule for monthly fusion offerings.

Aquila Glass School

Breaking with the no-nonsense vibe of the shop’s warehouse exterior, Aquila Glass School’s brightly painted loading-dock door hints at the vibrant creativity that waits inside. The full-time working studio simmers with nine kilns as students create their glass into plates, beads, boxes, or Christmas tree ornaments. Students cut their teeth on introductory classes that teach fusing and studio safety, then graduate to more advanced skills such as torch work and marble making. The expansive facility also offers 68 hours of open studio time each week, where graduates of introductory classes return to further their education with more classes or create independent projects with free use of the facilities, tools, and instruction books made entirely of stained glass.

Hello! I took my girlfriend to this class and it was so MUCH FUN! We learned a lot of glass tips alone with having a great time!! The instructor was absolutely fantastic! And the owners, 1 of whom was our instructor, were so knowledgeable and helpful. What a great time! I would recommend Aquila Glass School and Shop to everyone new to Glass work or already experienced. Thank you!!!
