The teachers at Do It Yourself Crafts coach groups on the fundamentals of fusing glass into vibrant, original artworks. During each two-hour class, instructors expound on glass properties, scoring and cutting techniques, and the proper way to construct stained-glass reproductions of prom photos, but without all the fake mustaches and real angst. Students fabricate a 6-inch piece primed for slumping into a bowl or dish, and forge a gleaming pendant for displaying on a necklace or using to temporary blind a herd of charging rhinos. Do It Yourself Crafts outfits amateur glass smiths with all the necessary materials for their works to be fired on site, and patrons older than 21 can tote libations to the lecture for imbibing as they forge their own party favors.

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.
