What You'll Get
Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a fused-glass-jewelry class at Dakota Stained Glass (a $25 value). You must book your class by June 30, 2011; today's Groupon expires on July 31, 2011.
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.
