Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention. Give your artsy ego the attention it deserves with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get one introductory glass-fusion workshop at SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery (a $150 value). Classes are held Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:00–8:00 p.m.
SiNaCa Studios allows artists of all skill levels to partake in the tradition of kiln-fired glass formation during introductory glass-fusion classes. With the help and insight of an experienced instructor, students will learn the basics of fusing glass after a comprehensive demonstration of safety and tool use. Educated on glass types, firing schedules, and fusing lingo, participants learn to safely cut glass and arrange glassy masterpieces ready for the kiln. Create up to four small pieces to be fused during the two-hour workshop, or compose blobby triptych interpretations of van Gogh’s Starry Night. All supplies are included with the cost of the class, and clients should call ahead to sign up for their preferred date.
Functioning as both a school and a gallery, SiNaCa Studios not only showcases the work of glass artists, but introduces the centuries-old art form to students of all ages. Founded by local artisans, the nonprofit works with the community to add a new facet to a burgeoning art scene, teaming up with other nonprofits and teaching classes—including youth programs—at various facilities. Interested parties can enroll in a variety of glass classes. These include glass-blowing and kiln forming, the most achievement-minded uses of hot air since Neil Armstrong lied about having lunar citizenship.
