Those who live in glass houses should not only refrain from throwing stones, but they should also never walk around naked. Cloak yourself in creative inspiration with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a four-hour ornament-making class at Glassique architectural-glass design studio (a $95 value).

Glassique’s owner and glass guru Richard Heath and his team of associated artists fuse more than 60 years of experience into their intimate glass-design and fabrication classes. During holiday ornament classes, students learn how to create their own stained-glass ornaments shaped like classic holiday decorations such as snowmen, Santas, and nondenominational amorphous color blobs. Squires can mold as many ornaments as they're able during the four-hour session. All glass and supplies for this glass are provided by Glassique; however, guests should bring their own life-size Rudolph models. Class dates and times can be found here.

Inside Glassique's intimate design studio, light filters through stained-glass artistry and spills color onto the waiting floor. In addition to teaching students, Heath and team style custom entry doors that open like the growing confidence of their student creators.

Glassique

In 1979, a job repairing and restoring church windows illuminated Richard Heath's passion for glass art, which is now embodied in his design and teaching studio, Glassique. Working with the church's leaded glass spurred Heath to earn a certificate in the restoration of Tiffany works and delve into other fabrication methods such as fusing and foiling. Thereafter, he opened Glassique's first incarnation in San Diego and announced the event by making the stained-glass sign that still decorates the shop.

Missing family, Heath relocated Glassique to be with his four children in Seattle, settling the business in a 2,000-square-foot showroom with a studio for the creation of original commissions and custom reproductions. He and a small team of artists also hold comprehensive 2-D glass art classes. Heath's intricate commissioned work—including a glass portrait of John Wayne—proves that he thinks big. “We don’t teach little things,” Heath told Maple Leaf Life in 2011. “We teach the real art of stained glass.”

A wonderful studio with helpful staff. We had enough people to create a class of our own, and they were able to accommodate us when it was convenient for us. We're definitely going back.
