Glass provides a resting place for wine, eveningwear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today’s Groupon to The Goddess of Glass. Choose between the following options:

The Goddess of Glass herself, Connie Beckers, channels her decade of creative expertise while teaching students to mimic her glass-fusing artistry. During the three-hour workshop, each pupil creates two slumped plates and four coasters, using stencils to trace designs of their choosing. Groups of chums can chat together as they craft their patterns with glass frits and powders and assemble their vibrant works of art. The class demands no previous experience or skill, though experience with cutting through glass in jewel heists doesn’t hurt. After about two weeks, docents visit the Goddess’ retail space on Lowry Avenue to retrieve their fired and finished masterpieces, ready for gifting, displaying, or turning into colorful monocles.

The Goddess of Glass

Most students in introductory stained-glass-making classes are in search of a new hobby or a fun few hours, but not Connie Beckers. In 1995, she took such a course and soon built a career around the art of stained glass and kiln-working. Now, through The Goddess of Glass, she teaches others her craft during classes that cover the creation of jewelry, coasters, plates, and transparent overalls. She’s also been known to flex her instructional muscle as a guest artist on the DIY Network show I Hate my Kitchen, on the episode entitled Cramped Quarters, where she taught the show’s host and contractor how to make stained-glass tiles for a kitchen in the middle of remodeling.

The Goddess of Glass also sells artwork and gifts out of a separate retail shop. Patrons can commission a custom piece, such as a stained-glass window, or peruse a collection of pieces by more than 80 local artisans. The shop’s staff can also advise clients who need custom framing, helping them to pick the proper matting and frame so that their Richard Nixon rookie cards really pop.

Glass fusing class was fun! Connie has everything set up and ready to go. Lots of glass supplies to work with to make your project a master piece. I cannot wait to take another class!

I wasn't sure what to expect, but this was a super fun time for a date night!! Would be fun with girlfriends, too. It's a great way to do something creative while also getting to talk to one another and enjoy some QT! Plus, you get fun souvenirs! Would definitely recommend!
