What You'll Get
Crafting stained glass originated as a pastime for aristocrats, much like playing polo and barbecuing money. Make your own pretty pane with today’s Groupon to Harmony Stained Glass in Pasadena. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get a dichroic-glass pendant-making class (a $29 value).
- For $35, you get an introductory stained-glass workshop (a $75 value).
The esteemed artisans at Harmony Stained Glass impart hard-won, glass-fusing wisdom to craftspeople of all abilities in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Ninety-minute dichroic-glass sessions train participants in the alchemical art-science of turning shards of glass into gleaming charms that elegantly accent necklines and communicate with government officials via Morse code. Before each class finishes, students will get the chance to put their newly acquired skills into practice by engineering a piece of self-made jewelry. Alternatively, the stained-glass workshop bestows upon fledgling glass gurus three hours of hands-on stained-glass instruction, detailing basic tools and techniques and culminating in the production of a heart-shaped suncatcher. In simple, easy-to-follow instructions, the workshop covers processes such as how to cut glass, how to foil edges, and how to hold a soldering iron from the correct end.
As a convenient bonus, both classes provide all of the necessary supplies and encourage attendees to bring their own wine, beer, dairy cows, and snacks to maximize learning enjoyment. For safety, Harmony Stained Glass advises students to wear closed-toed shoes and bring safety goggles should they own them. Check the online calendar for class times.
