At Ellen's Glass Act, certified glass instructor Ellen Rubin leads fledgling fusers of all ages in the creation of festive glass baubles. Students arrange sheaths of glass into pleasing patterns, tracing images onto their future ornaments from photographs, drawings, or stencils to create a quaint wintry scene or to pay homage to a beloved mall Santa Claus. Safe for even little hands as young as age 3, the glass is not hot while students work with it. The talented teacher shepherds students through a variety of techniques, finally fusing the glass in a kiln. The school provides sheet glass, liquid powder for decorative accents, and all the equipment necessary for shaping Christmas, Hanukkah, or Secretary's Day ornaments.
