Now the choice medium for decorative windows, stained glass originally protected the sensitive peepers of medieval rock stars from the oil paint paparazzi’s blinding torchlights. Enjoy all things glassy and classy with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a four-hour One Day Lead class at Creations Unique (a $98 value). Pick from the schedule of Sunday afternoon classes.
Creations Unique's expert glass wielders lead fledgling fusers through the intricate techniques used to meld colored panels into translucent masterpieces. The four-hour crash course in creative glassery instructs novitiates in designing, cutting, grinding, assembling, and soldering the lead skeleton for a paneled window or an abstract depiction of a Lego house. Students will choose glass from a wide selection of colors and styles and then fit the pieces into their vibrant visions, forming a panel up to 14"x18". When the dust settles and a rainbow forms over the store, students keep their work to show off to family members, coworkers, and Louvre curators. Each session arms apprentices with all necessary tools and materials.
While Creations Unique operates like the Stanford of stained-glass making, it also supplies a bevy of post-class supplies. The shop’s smorgasbord of stained glass, fused glass, tools, and materials allow artists to head home to accentuate the wispy sideburns of their freshly made portrait of Martin Van Buren.
Creations Unique Studio
Light radiates through a stained-glass rendering of a verdant grapevine. A fire-hued glass pendant dangles from a leather cord. These are just a few of the masterpieces by local artists at Creations Unique Studio, where professionals coalesce to craft jewelry and home decor, as well as helm hands-on classes. Under their expertise and instruction, students create beaded bracelets, wrangle precious metals into earrings, or learn the art of wire wrapping until they are able to give their favorite FBI agent a suitable Christmas present.
