Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention. Keep your artistic side thriving with today’s Groupon for glass craft classes at Glass Addicts in Sanford. Choose from the following options:

  • For $22, you get a Stepping Stones class, which yields a 12" stepping stone (a $45 value).
  • For $37, you get a Moravian Star class, which yields an ornamental star (a $75 value).
  • For $150, you get a four-week beginner course, which yields at least one 12”x16” glass panel (a $325 value).

Glass Addicts nurtures aesthetes with hands-on instruction in a cozy, bright art studio with ample tables and a variety of materials from which students can draw inspiration. Each class outfits pupils with supplies, ensuring no one has to fasten glass pieces together with chewed bubblegum. Each Stepping Stones class spans over three hours and guides students in the creation of a beautiful and sturdy stone impervious to a variety of weather conditions, sometimes lasting for more than 10 years. Alternatively, the Moravian Star class uses the Morton cutting system to create an ornamental star, which recreates the night sky for romantics or nostalgic nocturnal pets. Students delve deep into the glass arts with the four-week beginner course, which details the Tiffany-style process used to create at least one 12”x16” panel. Glass enthusiasts first acquaint themselves with basic tools, materials, and safety methods. Next, they practice fundamental glasswork methods, including cutting, grinding, fitting, soldering, and telekinetically bending glass. Aspiring glass-shapers can view class times for these Groupon classes online.

Most people don't get business calls from Walt Disney World. But, two decades ago, Glass Addicts owner Denise Hurley received just that—along with a request to design and build Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa's carousel horse. In the years since, orders have continued to pour in from Kohl's, The Mirage hotel, and other businesses and collectors seeking Hurley's Tiffany-style stained-glass and art-glass designs. Hurley also builds masterpieces on a smaller scale, restoring and repairing customers’ already existing pieces and building custom panes for homes and offices.

Intent on sharing her talent with others, Hurley teaches classes on formats ranging from mosaic picture frames to stepping stones and more. No previous experience is necessary, as classes accommodate beginners and master artists alike. Sessions take place in spacious, well-lit rooms filled with materials, and students and customers can study from books inspired by Hurley's designs or observe the installment skills of her professional staff.

I love this place. Denise and Virgil are awesome teachers. I will definitely be taking more classes in the near future.

I only got to do the first day of the class due to a broken foot and ankle. It was a lot of fun and I was so pleased when I was told they would work with me so that I could finish my classes once I was back on my feet again. Great folks!
