Choose Between Two Options

  • $23 for a fused-glass trinket dish workshop for one ($40 value)
  • $44 for a fused-glass trinket dish workshop for two ($80 value)<p>

During the 90-minute workshop, a stained-glass expert teaches students the basics of fusing glass in a kiln, with all tools and supplies provided. Students craft a square trinket dish that can coordinate with their home decor or favorite holiday. The dishes require both a tack-fuse firing and slump firing in the store’s kiln.<p>

The Glass Workbench

The Glass Workbench—a stained-glass and glass-making specialty store—began as a family-owned enterprise in 1975. Back then, owners Glen and Joanne Bishop chose an old-style building on South Main Street to create their shrine to the age-old art of glassmaking. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the building's 2-foot-thick Burlington limestone walls enclose the shop's inventory of supplies and books about glass arts. They also house mosaic stained-glass artworks by Julie Bishop Day, Glen and Joanne's daughter, who developed the stepping-stone technique for glass decoration. Local crafters take advantage of glassmaking workshops and admire the work of the staff's resident artisans, whose custom stained-glass pieces portray nature imagery and legendary moments in history such as when Ben Franklin invented Windex.
