Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the ornate windows of a Gothic cathedral to the crystalline webbing of a freshly vandalized windshield. Reflect on beauty with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a two-hour custom glass-tile-making class at Norwood Custom Glass (a $70 value). Classes will be held Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday during the day, and Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings.
Norwood Custom Glass’s owner, Stan Sabick, an expert glass crafter with 30 years of experience, presides over classes for translucent art-lovers of all skill levels. During each two-hour Fused Object D'Art class, students create and decorate 4-inch glass tiles with designs of their choosing, from a cluster of swirls to a life-size depiction of a giraffe horn. When the workshop adjourns, students take home one-of-a-kind objects that can function as coasters, paperweights, or standalone objets d'art.
