With more than 26 years of designing and teaching experience, Rainbow Vision’s instructors foster an inviting atmosphere in which students envision, design, and create decorative and functional glassworks. The two-hour fused jewelry pendants workshop teaches duos and solitary smithies the basics of fusing multiple colors of glass into various shapes, such as daisy petals or Mark McGwire. After fusing two colorful pendants, pupils relinquish creations to Rainbow Vision’s staff, which mounts them onto the student’s choice of brass- or silver-coated bails. This workshop includes the use of tools, kiln firing, and all necessary materials such as glass colors, frits, stringers, and dichroic accents that skew the color spectrum like the rainbows that form over black-lit cosmic golf courses.
The windows of Rainbow Vision’s Victorian-mansion glass studio are lined with sheets of tie-dyed glass, each providing shiny inspiration for new students. The class size never exceeds 10 people, and each class is typically led by two instructors to foster a supportive learning environment and intimate dance-offs. Classes are scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday; additional dates and class times will be added throughout the duration of the Groupon.
Rainbow Vision Stained Glass
With a team of instructors having more than two more decades of experience, Rainbow Vision Stained Glass expands the community of glass workers through small group classes. Students gather within Rainbow Vision Stained Glass’s sprawling Victorian-style headquarters to learn the fundamentals of making stained glass or the more sophisticated techniques necessary for crafting glass boxes, Tiffany-style lampshades, or glass houses for those who have sworn off throwing rocks. The studio also teaches fused-glass skills, which can yield everything from pendants to wine-bottle stoppers.
Anticipating the needs of its pupils, Rainbow Vision Stained Glass peddles everything a glass artist might desire. More than 400 styles and colors of glass gleam within, more than 300 pattern books await crafters in need of inspiration, and soldering irons stand ready to bind creations together.
