Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a three-hour stained glass snowflake workshop at K.V. Glass Works (a $60 value).
K.V. Glass Works’ cadre of expert instructors demonstrates to crafters how to transform glass into artfully shaped masterpieces with hands-on, interactive workshops. The three-hour glass-snowflake workshop allows students to create an iridescent molecule of snowman DNA in a small group setting with individual attention. Sage glass wranglers remain on hand to answer questions and elucidate the lead-wrapping technique. While nestled into an individual workspace in the bright classroom, pupils spend six sitcoms-worth of quality time forging their baubles using bevels, nuggets, and clear glass provided by instructors. Upon the workshop’s completion, K.V. Glass Works sends the newly minted flakes out to be plated. Artisans can double back to the store approximately a week after their session to pick up their creation and display it in a window to attract both the light and the admiration of passing Jack Frosts.
