Inside a 6,500-square-foot retail and instruction space, Dakota Stained Glass owner Ken Bird inspires merry bands of visitors to create glass-based masterpieces. The one-night glass-jewelry class introduces a technique known as fusing, in which individual fragments of colored glass are arranged in a specific design and run through a superheated kiln, rendering previously disparate pieces part of a harmonious mass. Under a Dakota Stained Glass expert’s tutelage, students are provided all the necessary tools, materials, and know-how to create four fused-glass pendants of their own conception, fulfilling aesthetic visions and filling bare body parts with bedazzling glass designs of abstract colors and all-seeing Elvis Presley heads. Several class dates and times are available for busy beekeepers and overworked warlocks alike.
