Instructor was very good at explaining the whole steps for the entire class before we started on our projects and she was their for the whole class to help out and make suggestions. Our finished pieces were ready for pick up when they said they would be done. Will probably do another different class with them. Very friendly staff.

Had a great time in a private fused glass discovery with my mom. The instructor was helpful and answered all our questions, and it was a really fun experience together! A tiny bit hard to find at the back of the complex, but keep driving and you'll get there!

About This Deal

During a hands-on glass discovery experience, instructors guide students through the process of making their own 5”x5” fused-glass mosaic. Projects vary and can be seasonally themed. instructors will explain the safety, equipment, and tools that kiln-formed glass artists use everyday to create their art. Participants will be taught how to cut sheet glass, and then will be coached through the steps of creating a unique dish, ornament, or sun-catcher of their own. They will then be able to cut, shape, layer, and arrange a variety of colored sheet glass to create a one-of-a-kind project. Kiln-forming is a valuable alternative to working with molten glass in the hotshop, as makers will be able to detail their pieces and have much more control over their design. Kiln Fusing Glass Discoveries are more relaxed and slower paced than glassblowing, and do not involve hot equipment.

  • Classes are held Sundays from 10:00am-5:00pm
  • Masks are required while the COVID-19 pandemic persists
  • No experience required and all materials are provided for participants
  • Private glass art lesson with no other participants present besides those in the participating group
