During beginner classes, instructors expound on glass’s properties and scoring and cutting techniques. Students fabricate (and take home) a 6-inch piece primed for slumping into a bowl or dish, and forge a gleaming pendant for displaying on a necklace. Alternatively, advanced classes pump up students’ glass-fusing repertoire with advanced techniques such as using a glass grinder, circle cutting, and frit work as they create an 8-inch circle or square piece. Advanced classes are slated for those who have taken an introductory course and are comfortable with glass cutting.

Do It Yourself Crafts outfits amateur glass-smiths with all the necessary materials for their works to be fired onsite, and patrons older than 21 can tote libations to the lecture for imbibing as they forge their own party favors. The advanced class does not include the cost of slump firing, which can be purchased onsite for an additional $6.<p>

Do-It-Yourself Crafts

Inside their blue-walled studio, staffers at Do-It-Yourself Crafts help visitors wield glass, tie-dye, silver clay, and pottery paints to create colorful, one-of-a-kind artwork. Glass-fusion classes teach patrons the skills they need to meld glass shards into funky tiles, and parties bring friends together to bond while they work on various art projects; patrons 21 or older can tote along libations to fuel the festivities. During pottery-painting sessions, patrons select a piece of raw ceramic bisque to adorn with provided pigments, choosing from forms such as plates, mugs, and plaques.
