Beginner-level Try-It classes teach students of all ages the basics of manipulating glass into fetching shapes and designs. Classes differ by the type of glass used and the technique practiced. The Basics from Boron class focuses on crafting paperweights and icicle ornaments using borosilicate glass, and the kiln class demonstrates methods of creating varicolored tiles and pendants using sheet glass. Each class includes all materials.
Seasoned artist Malcom Potek calls upon more than two decades of glass-manipulating experience while crafting intricate, multicolored tiles and custom sconces that suit the unique architecture of their intended edifices. Within his shop and gallery, a glossy collection of already made glass portraits, beads, and tiles entices eyes to ogle one-of-a-kind designs instead of Betty Boop–shaped clouds. Visitors inspired by Potek's work can learn the tricks of the trade during a variety of glass-blowing classes that set participants on the path to glass-blowing certification.
