Stained glass demonstrates the fragility of beauty, the robustness of craftsmanship, and the dangers of driving cars with beveled, painted windshields. Learn to use art responsibly with today's Groupon: for $49 you get one Introduction to Stained Glass class at Studio Arts & Glass (a $100 value) in North Canton.
The educated staff at Studio Arts & Glass works with all manner of stained-glass masterpieces, from crafting residential window art to restoring the Ohio State House seal. In the two-hour Introduction to Stained Glass class, aspiring silica surgeons learn the basics of cutting, coloring, and reconfiguring otherwise purposeless shards into artful ornamentations, such as window hangings or ornamental MP3 players. Artistic midwives guide students through the process of creating their own stained glass brainchild, providing glass, tools, and supplies. After the session, bring home your handmade pane painting and rescue furniture from the ennui of natural light.
Classes take place Wednesday evenings, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday mornings, from 10 a.m. to noon. Space is limited, so be sure to call ahead for a reservation.
